Clayton Littlewood

Agent: Juliet Pickering

Biography: Clayton Littlewood grew up in sunny Weston-Super-Mare and moved to London in his teens, to join a band called Spongefinger as the lead singer. After being rejected by every record company in the UK (and many in the US), Clayton turned to pirate radio, hosting a comedy show where he posed as a female West Country aromatherapist by the name of Doctor Bunty.

Clayton ran the shop Dirty White Boy on Old Compton Street in Soho until 2011, where he wrote a blog of the same name which subsequently became a newspaper column and then a book. DIRTY WHITE BOY (Cleis) was followed by its sequel, GOODBYE TO SOHO, in 2012.

A play based on DIRTY WHITE BOY, which starred Clayton and the actor David Benson, ran for several weeks at Trafalgar Studios. Clayton is also a regular contributor to BBC radio.
