So, Who is Murdoch Attacker 'Jonnie Marbles'?

Jonnie Marbles (real name Jonathan May-Bowles), the blogger, Twitter enthusiast and Rupert Murdoch attacker is elusive to say the least. His blog, titled "Anarch*ist," with tagline, "Because the state's not gonna smash itself," claims the following:

BuzzFeed posted some of Marbles' standup comedy. Check it out, below:
