Shaun Williamson is an addict. His main craving is for knowledge. The 'gateway' drug was the first edition (Genus 1) of Trivial Pursuit, a seemingly innocuous Christmas present from his unsuspecting parents. They might just as well have given him Ketamine. This innocent gift sent our author on a mind-bending trip of ethereal highs and ignominious lows which, although now under control, can result in a relapse at a moment's notice.
Shaun is best known for playing Barry Evans in BBC1's 'Eastenders' from 1994-2004 and for the Ricky Gervais/Stephen Merchant series 'Extras' and 'Life's Too Short'. He has shamelessly used his fame to appear on as many TV Quiz shows as humanly possible and has won celebrity versions of Mastermind, Eggheads, The Chase, Today's The Day and Pointless (winning 4 times). He is currently the resident brainbox barman on 'Al Murray's Great British Pub Quiz'.
