Marcus Brigstocke | Event Host | UK
Marcus began his comedy career at Bristol University where he performed stand up and character shows and soon won the BBC New Comedian of 1996. He has since emerged as a major comedy, writing and acting talent, performing in the UK and beyond and has become a regular voice on BBC Radio with an impressive list of TV and film credits.
The Edinburgh Festival Fringe has been a regular haunt for Marcus, and has seen him receive a great deal of critical acclaim. Marcus appears regularly on The Now Show with Punt and Dennis. He has also written and recorded three series of Giles Wemmbley-Hogg Goes and The Museum of Everything. Marcus plays the head of Unthinkable Solutions in Think the Unthinkable. Other programmes Marcus has appeared on include Just a Minute, Newsquiz, The Today Program, and 99p Challenge. He played a starring role in the first series of 2000 Years of Radio and also made Risking Everything, a serious investigation in to the world of insurance.
He appeared in Richard Curtis’ movie Love Actually as a Radio DJ interviewing the wonderfully jaded Billy Mack, and also went to Berlin with Kevin Spacey to film Beyond The Sea – the life story of Bobby Darin. In the forthcoming Piccadilly Jim Marcus appears with Sam Rockwell and Tom Wilkinson as ‘man having sex under stairs’, a small but vital role. He also played a desperately ambitious and tragically unable arts presenter in A Short Film About John Bolton, directed by Neil Gaiman.
