Marcus Brigstocke

Marcus Brigstocke’s talent was noted early on in his career in 1996 when he won the BBC New Comedian Award at the Edinburgh Festival. He is now regarded as a major comedy, writing and acting talent, performing stand up nationally to sell out audiences on tour.

BBC Radio 4 has become somewhat of a second home to Marcus with regular appearances on I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue, The Now Show and Just A Minute. He has written and recorded three series and four specials of his hit show, Giles Wemmbley-Hogg Goes Off. Most recently, he co-starred alongside Kerry Godliman, in The Wilsons Save The World, which has been recommissioned for a second series.

Marcus has notched up an impressive list of TV credits including his role as team captain on Argumental (Dave), and host of The Late Edition and I’ve Never Seen Star Wars (BBC Four). Other appearances include; Live At The Apollo (BBC One), Have I Got News For You (BBC One), Mock the Week (BBC Two), QI (BBC Two), Sorry I’ve Got No Head (BBC One), The Late Edition (BBC Four), and the 11 O’Clock Show (Channel 4).

Marcus is the master of satirical comedy and has proved to be blisteringly funny over a wide range of topics including; climate change, religious extremism, immigration, loans companies, the Special Relationship, compensation culture, women’s magazines, The EU and David Blaine, not to mention his own personal battle against his middle class roots.

Marcus has also found himself treading the boards of the West End with a critically acclaimed performance as King Arthur in Monty Python’s Spamalot and as Station Master Perks in E.Nesbit’s The Railway Children at London’s Waterloo Station in 2011.

Marcus’ book, God Collar, based on his award-winning Edinburgh and West End show, a scathing look at modern faith that will leave you laughing out loud and examining your own beliefs in equal measure, was released in June 2011.

Marcus starred in the short film, Never Land, inspired by the terrible storms that are wreaking havoc on the country, seen through the eyes of a 10-year old boy.

 

Marcus Brigstocke s’est fait remarqué en début de carrière en 1996 en remportant le BBC New Comedian Award au Festival d’Édimbourg. Il est maintenant considéré comme l’une des figures centrale de la comédie en Grande-Bretagne.

Pour Marcus, BBC Radio 4 est devenue en quelque sorte une deuxième maison avec des apparitions régulières sur Je suis désolé, je n’ai pas la moindre idée, The Now Show et Just A Minute. Il a écrit et enregistré quatre programmes pour son émission Giles Wemmbley-Hogg Goes Off. Plus récemment, il a joué aux côtés de Kerry Godliman dans The Wilsons Save The World, qui va bientôt sortir sa deuxième série.

Marcus a fait de nombreux apparitions à la télévision, incluant son rôle de capitaine d’équipe sur Argumental (Dave) et d’animateur de The Late Edition et de I Never Never Seen Star Wars (BBC Four). D’autres apparitions incluent; Live At The Apollo (BBC One), Have I Got News For You (BBC One), Mock the Week (BBC Two), QI (BBC Two), Désolé je n’ai pas de tête (BBC One), The Late Edition ( BBC Four) et le 11 O’Clock Show (canal 4).

Marcus est maître de la comédie satirique et s’est avéré extrêmement drôle sur un large éventail de sujets, comme le changement climatique, les extrémismes religieux, l’immigration, culture de la rémunération, les magazines féminines, l’UE et David Blaine, sans parler de sa bataille personnelle contre ses origines de la classe moyenne.

Marcus s’est également retrouvé dans le West End avec une performance acclamée par la critique en tant que Roi Arthur dans le Spamalot de Monty Python et en tant que Station Master Perks dans The Railway Children à la gare de Waterloo de Londres en E.Nesbit en 2011.

Marcus a joué dans le court métrage Never Land, inspiré par les terribles tempêtes qui font des ravages en Grande-Bretagne, vues au travers les yeux d’un garçon de 10 ans.
