Kunt and the Gang is a British synthpop dark musical comedian who originated as a council worker from Basildon in 2003.[3] His act generated popularity through performing at a number of pubs and attracting the attention of national magazines. He would then make content for early social networking platforms, predominately MySpace; and proclaims himself a “minor internet hit singer” though has also been described as an Internet celebrity. He states that he used social networking "before the thought police took it over".[4] Despite mainly being a singular comedian, "and the Gang" in his stage name is designed to incorporate his characters such as hand-puppet "Little Kunt" who is referred to in numerous songs. In 2010, his act first reached chart success when his single "Use My Arsehole as a Cunt (The Nick Clegg Story)" reached number #66 in the UK Christmas singles chart.[5][6][7] The following year, another single, "Fucksticks", also entered the charts, this time at number #63.

He released ten studio albums before retiring his act in 2016, and published an autobiography in December 2018. In 2019 he returned with an album featuring French versions of many of his “minor internet hits”. The real name of "Kunt" has never been officially revealed, in his own words “So as to not ruin the magic”. Kunt and the Gang’s early work is best known for its simple electronic production and controversial lyrical content, dealing with such taboo subjects as masturbation and sexual fantasies. Kunt’s later work took a darker turn, following the well documented Operation Yewtree police investigation, often touching on the subject of pedophilia and featured several timely, hearse-chasing ironic tributes to recently deceased celebrities.
