The son of an RAF officer, Newman was born in Kuala Lumpurmarker and schooled at Ardingly College where his satirical career began, working on revues with Ian Hislop. In his last term at Ardingly Newman was 'asked to leave' (thrown out), after wiring up the chapel to play rock music during a chapel service. Despite this incident Newman managed to secure a place at Oxford Universitymarker where he read history, and continued to be friends with Ian Hislop. Hislop and Newman subsequently worked together on Spitting Image from 2003 - 2009, wrote for Maureen Lipman and co-wrote several episodes of Murder Most Horrid for Dawn French. Newman and Hislop's credits also include two series of My Dad's the Prime Minister for BBC 1, sketches for The Harry Enfield Show, creating the character Tim Nice-But-Dim, and the BBC Radio 4 series Gush, a satire based on the first Gulf War, in the style of Jeffrey Archer.

Also with Chris Douglas, he wrote 2 series of Mastering the Universe for Dawn French on Radio 4. In 2008 he co-wrote A Bunch of Amateurs -starring Burt Reynolds, Sir Derek Jacobi and Samantha Bond - which was the Royal Film Performance for that year.
