Brian Wakeling was born in the Midlands, bred in the Home Counties, raised in Yorkshire, and went to university in Edinburgh, where he studied fencing and drinking at QMUC – from where he was finally kicked out for the second time in May 2000. He returned to Yorkshire nine months later where he tried to get a life but couldn't afford one. In summer 2005, following his ambition to get a job in a theatre, he moved down to London – and almost completely failed in this ambition. However, in 2013 he took a show to the Edinburgh Festival, and hopes to do so again in 2014. He has been writing in one form or another for most of his life, and was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome in March 2009.
