Iain Morris (born 6 August 1973)[1][2] is an English writer. Morris is best known for creating The Inbetweeners with his writing partner Damon Beesley[3] and co-hosting a show on London radio station XFM with stand-up Jimmy Carr. He featured in the "Iron" and "Music" episodes of cult spoof TV show Look Around You,[4] as well as on Jimmy Carr's second live DVD, as a panelist on a feature named Comedy Idol.[5] He studied theology at the University of Bristol.

Other writing credits include two episodes of HBO's Flight of the Conchords; Season One episode "The Actor" and Season Two episode "Unnatural Love".[6]

In May 2003 while wrestling with Ricky Gervais in his front room, Morris caused a back injury to Gervais, who consequently mentioned the events leading up to the injury and the pain he was suffering on his XFM Radio show. Gervais's girlfriend was videotaping the incident, but to date no copy of this footage has emerged. He has appeared on Radio Four comedies, such as "So Wrong its Right" with Charlie Brooker, which first aired on 25 May 2010.

Morris married American singer/DJ Marchelle Bradanini on 14 May 2011 in Palm Springs, California, in the United States.[7]

Extras[edit]

In Ricky Gervais's sitcom Extras characters named Damon Beesley and Iain Morris were featured and Gervais confirmed on 2011's The Inbetweener's Top Ten Moments that the Extras characters were indeed named for his former producers.
