“There’s probably no God. But I wish there was. I’ve got some things I need to ask him.”
One of Britain’s finest comedians and broadcasters, Marcus Brigstocke, is taking his hotly anticipated new show God Collar on tour this Autumn. The award-winning comedian is a firm favourite with comedy fans and God Collar promises to be as sharply observant and quick-witted as his much loved catalogue of work.
Marcus’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 both on tour and on the well trodden comedy circuit. BBC Radio 4 has become somewhat of a second home to him with regular appearances on The Now Show and Just A Minute, and he has notched up an impressive list of TV credits including team captain on Argumental (DAVE) and the host BBC4’s The Late Edition and I’ve Never Seen Star Wars.
Marcus is the king of satirical comedy. There’s not much that hasn’t come under his comedic gaze with blisteringly funny results – 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.
“Intelligent, dark, subtle stuff.” The Observer
“Dazzling, Inspired, perfectly observed. I’ve yet to see anything funnier” Daily Telegraph
