Marcus Brigstocke Biography

Marcus Brigstocke, one of the UK’s favourite writers and live comedy performers, is as confident, hilarious and mesmerising on stage as he is on screen.

Always a comedian at heart, Marcus only took to the stage during his time at university, and soon took the Bristol comedy scene by storm. Winning the BBC New Comedian award in 1996, and taking his show to the Edinburgh Fringe for the first time, Marcus could not have known that he would be selling out at the iconic festival, every year thereafter.

Showered with critical acclaim, Marcus’ 2006 show 'Planet Corduroy' stunned his fans, which he followed with the Early Edition, and eventually the revered Late Edition -  Marcus's own live topical show on BBC4.

Already an experienced TV comedy force, Marcus starred with Jack Dee in Live from the Apollo; The A-Z of Music and Have I Got News For You, amongst others.

Already an experienced TV comedy force, Marcus starred with Jack Dee in Live from the Apollo; The A-Z of Music and Have I Got News For You, amongst others.

In Trophy People, Marcus followed the lives of those unusual individuals who compete at the highest level in unusual hobbies, including Scrabble, bell-ringing and model airplane building.

BBC 3’s Vacant Position saw him in the lead role, and Marcus worked on The Savages and We Are History.

In 2006 Marcus gave himself four weeks to learn a new language for Excuse My French – where he performed to French crowds in their own tongue, in one of the most terrifying episodes of his career!
Marcus has written 3 series of Giles Wemmbley-Hogg Goes Off, as well as The Museum Of Everything, as well and has appeared on radio classics Just a Minute; Newsquiz; The Today Program and The Unbelievable Truth.

In 2014 Marcus took part in what is arguably the most dangerous show on TV - The Jump - where he was injured just before the final. 

A regualr on the festival circuit, Marcus has graced the stage at the Hay Festival, Latitude, and of course Edingburgh. 

In movies Marcus appeared as a DJ in Richard Curtis' Love Actually, and alongside Kevin Spacey in Beyond The Sea - the life story of Bobby Darin.

He is committed to non-violence and is an active campaigner for CND and 'Campaign Against Arms Trade'.
