Oh So Funny! presents:
OhSoFunny returns with another big comedy name!
Marcus Brigstocke is a master of satirical comedy with an impressive list of TV credits, who first came to prominence when he won the BBC New Comedian Award at the Edinburgh Festival in 1996. He is now regarded as a major comedy, writing and acting talent, performing stand up nationally to sell out audiences both on tour and on the well-trodden comedy circuit.
He appears frequently on TV as a team captain on Argumental (Dave) and host of The Late Edition and I’ve Never Seen Star Wars (BBC4). Other appearances include Live At The Apollo (BBC1), Have I Got News For You (BBC1), Mock the Week (BBC2), QI (BBC2), Sorry I’ve Got No Head (BBC1), The Late Edition (BBC4), and the 11 O’Clock Show (Channel 4).
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 also written and recorded three series and four specials of his hit show "Giles Wemmbley-Hogg Goes Off". Most recently he co-wrote and co-starred in the new BBC Radio 4 sitcom The Wilsons Save The World.

All three acts were very funny and entertaining. Some drunk hecklers were a pain but were dealt with well by compere and management.

Comedy from newbies were a high standard. Marcus was just amazing as always. MC Nigel did a difficult job really well dealing with a small section of the crowd trying to disrupt the evening. Well done to him.
