Without further ado, here's Ian's own piece:

 

 

 

Ian Donald Cochrane Hopkins (also known as IDC Hopkins or Ian D. C. Hopkins or Ian Hopkins) is a Scottish comedy writer[1][2] and management consultant.

 

Born in Darvel, Ayrshire on the 16th July 1943, Hopkins attended Kilmarnock Academy before pursuing a career in Industrial Engineering.

 

Hopkins undertook a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics at London University, following which he became a lecturer in Management at the University of the West of Scotland.

 

Hopkins comedy writing career began as a contracted writer for Naked Radio, Six of the Best, Not the Nine O'Clock News[3][4], Three of a Kind[5], Naked Video[6] and Spitting Image[7][8].
