SCRIPT ADVISER and PROVOCATEUR - Jon Haynes: grew up in a household without a television. At school he won an award for speaking Greek verse and decided to become an actor. He spent his first year at Sheffield University taking drugs, reading books on the Moors murders and digesting R. D. Laing. He turned down an offer to appear at the London Palladium and opted to have a nervous breakdown instead. Seven years later and still as mad as a hatter he enrolled at The Poor School in London and it was there that he met the co-founders of what would become Ridiculusmus.
