Sitter in 1 portrait
Enfield began his comedy career by providing voices for the satirical puppet show Spitting Image. He shot to fame with characters created with Paul Whitehouse for Channel 4's Saturday Live. These included 'Loadsamoney', whose constant boasting about his wealth captured the spirit of excess in late1980s Britain, and later Kevin the teenager appearing in Harry Enfield and Chums (1990-8). Enfield was influenced by comedians from the 1970s, including Morecambe and Wise, rather than alternative comedy. In 2008, Enfield reunited with Whitehouse in the current television sketch series, Harry and Paul. Enfield has also appeared in the comedy drama Skins.
