Recordings and Appearances
From 2001, Wisbey collaborated with Jonny Trunk, founder of Trunk Records, to produce the album Dirty Fan Male, based on Trunk's experiences organising glamour models' fan clubs. The album comprises Wisbey's amusing recitals of the fan mail they received and it was later turned into an acclaimed live show and a book.
The inclusion of Wisbey's song "The Ladies' Bras" on the 2007 compilation album Now We Are Ten and its appearances on The All Day Breakfast Show proved so successful that it was released as a single and became the shortest single ever to enter the UK Singles Chart following a campaign on BBC Radio 1 by Scott Mills. At 36 seconds long, it became the shortest song ever to make the UK Singles Chart, reaching number 27 in September 2007.
Wisbey has also appeared as an actor in several Doctor Who audio adventures, made by Big Finish Productions.
Wisbey narrated the short film Corridors directed by Chris Devey
