Phil Hammond is a comedian trapped in a doctor's body. He is Private Eye's medical correspondent and possibly the only comic to have performed at a Public Inquiry. Dr Phil has done plenty of Have I Got News for You, The News Quiz, The Now Show, The One Show and Countdown but still finds time to see patients. In his live show, he is disarmingly rude about politicians, doctors, death, drugs, sex and especially himself, and encourages people to pleasure themselves in a safe and sustainable way. He has yet to be struck off, but he has been reported to the General Medical Council by William Hague's Press Secretary.
