Marcus Brigstocke

Comedian, Writer and Broadcaster

Marcus Brigstocke is a comedian, writer and broadcaster. He was the BBC New Comedian of 1996, and is a regular at the Edinburgh festival. 


He is a Radio 4 regular, and his shows include Just a Minute, Newsquiz, The Today Program and The Award Winning Show. On the big screen he has appeared in Richard Curtis' movie Love Actually as a Radio DJ interviewing the wonderfully jaded Billy Mack (Bill Nighy). He went to Berlin with Kevin Spacey to film Beyond The Sea - the life story of Bobby Darin. In 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 - available now on DVD - for Ska Films.
