Genre:Stand-Up / Improv / As Seen on TV
TV ShowsI co-hosted The MTV European Music Awards Back-Stage in 2005 and 2006. Street Cred Sudoku. A few stand-up comedy TV shows. I was the baby that Ronnie Barker found in his bed-pan in the christmas special of Porridge. I’ve also written for lots of music TV shows from Pop-Up Video to VH1’s top-rated Videomouth.
BioSo, I used to not be a stand up comedian and now I am. I started off working in improvised comedy with the weekly London West End show, Scriptease, then I stopped that when I was asked to do some stand up shows. That was in 1998. Since then I’ve worked in nearly every comedy club in the UK and lots of abroad ones too. I went to Australia once! That was cool! I also do writing for telly, performed the improvised show The Conversation at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2004 and in 2005 performed as part of the sketch group The Treatment at the Soho Theatre in London. In 2007 I started The Real Daniel O’Donnell Show, a sketch group that performs on the second wednesday of every month at The Albany, Gt. Portland St. The Real Daniel O’Donnell Show is took it’s first show, The Clock Hour, to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2008. I’m currently working on a new Edinburgh show with Johnny Candon called King of Everything.

About me:Born from an egg on a mountain top, Monkey is funky and never stops. But I digress; this is the story of a man emotionally cornered on the edge of a cliff of pure turmoil of his own undoing that he did himself. Mild mannered (unless drinking) and borderline alcoholic, Michael Legge was the most bullied man at school. He got called names, was spat on and had his dinner money stolen every day. I know what you..re thinking; Teachers can be cruel, but that..s exactly the kind of joke he doesn..t like. He saw it coming a flipping mile off because Legge has a terrible secret. In fact, it..s an awful secret as most people know it already. While on a lovely field trip, Michael was taking photos of rare flora and fauna for his high school magazine, Razzle. The photos were never published but it was still a day he would never forget, thanks to his well written diary entry. For it was on that day Michael saw the circus was coming to town. Excited by the prospects of the hilarity of a gypsy loner dressed like a twat (I think he means a clown) and driving a broken car full of midgets, Michael ran as fast as he could to buy a ticket. Nine hours later he arrived at the box office only to be bitten by a radioactive Ring Master Unknown at the time, that bite was about to change his life forever. Michael started to change. Soon he was taking on the powers of someone who was not quite good enough to have an act of his own, someone who could make an audience clap and cheer but not actually laugh. Furious at realising his new calling, Michael swore revenge on all who thought themselves funny and singing comedians. It was then that he became THE MASTER OF CEREMONIES, an evil, heartless, bitter creature who believed in nothing but ruining a perfectly good night out. By day, he may be a mild mannered couch potato who gets up about noon but every night he changes. Woe betide any comic who is introduced by him for they will surely die a horrible death.
