Building on the success of a critically acclaimed and completely sold out run at Edinburgh festival, stand-up comedian ED GAMBLE wops out his debut solo effort Gambletron 5000 at the Soho Theatre from Thursday 7th to Saturday 9th May. ED would love you to see you there, but he realises that you are your own person and you make your own choices. Essentially he is asking you to consider joining him whilst he delivers some funny humour through a pretty sweet microphone/speaker set up.
ED stars in BBC America’s highest rating show Almost Royal, a fast-paced and frequently funny (Variety) comedy series following two young British aristocrats on their first trip around the US, which was broadcast on E4 last autumn and has had a second series commissioned. Other television appearances include; Man Down (Channel 4), performing on Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC Three) twice, Dave’s One Night Stand (Dave), Virtually Famous (E4) and Sweat the Small Stuff (BBC Three). On stage, ED has supported GREG DAVIES on two national tours and RUSSELL KANE on one and in 2014 won the Chortle Award for Best Compere which he has received another nomination for this year.
As one half of PEACOCK & GAMBLE, ED and his comedy partner RAY PEACOCK presented the top rated show on Fubar radio, tackling big subjects ranging from goldfish to death and talking to celebrity guests including AL MURRAY, JOHNNY VEGAS and the notorious porn star BEN DOVER. The comedy duo also present, write and co-host the iTunes-topping Peacock & Gamble Podcast which has earned them two Chortle Award nominations, a place in the Guardian’s top-ten comedy podcasts, and has seen them featured as part of the in-flight entertainment on British Airways. They starred in a short film, Warm Up, (BBC Comedy Online), have hosted The Comedy Club (BBC Radio 4 Extra) and have hosted and produced a Chortle sponsored daily podcast at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe since 2009 featuring comedy giants including RUSSELL HOWARD, LEE MACK and GREG DAVIES.
