Award-winning comedian Ed Gamble today announced an extension of his sell-out stand-up tour Blizzard, which has now doubled in size due to extraordinary demand across the run. This follows on from the success of selling out his latest hour at the Festival Fringe, with extra dates added to meet demand.

As well as continuing his role as a regular panellist on Mock the Week (BBC Two), Ed’s credits include numerous guest appearances on The Apprentice: You’re Fired (BBC Two), I’ll Get This (BBC Two), Richard Osman’s House of Games (BBC Two), Jon Richardson’s Ultimate Warrior (Dave), Insert Name Here (BBC Two), and Roast Battle UK (Comedy Central), stand-up appearances on Live At The Apollo (BBC Two), The Royal Variety Performance (ITV), The Russell Howard Hour (Sky One), headlining Live at the Comedy Store (Comedy Central), and Conan (TBS).

Ed first came to prominence playing Georgie Carlton in two series of Almost Royal (BBC America/E4/Netflix). He appeared in two episodes of Greg Davies’ sitcom Man Down (Channel 4), as well as co-writing the fourth series.

Ed has recently launched the hugely successful Off Menu podcast with co-host James Acaster (Repertoire on Netflix, Hypothetical on Dave). It immediately went to number one in the iTunes charts where it continues to flourish.
