His career in satire began at school working on revues with Ian Hislop, who was two years younger than himself, and later at Oxford University handed his creation Passing Wind magazine onto Hislop when Newman graduated.

Newman’s television credits have also included sketches for ITV’s The Harry Enfield Show, and the creation of one of its most memorable characters – Tim Nice-But-Dim.
