“an ability to open his mouth and spontaneously say something hysterically funny”

James Kettle, The Guardian

Award winning comedian Ed Gamble is set to embark on his sixth national tour Electric, following a twice extended sold-out UK tour of his previous stand-up show Blizzard and his comedy special Blood Sugar available worldwide on Amazon Prime. Winner of series 9 of Taskmaster (UKTV/Channel 4), star of Mock the Week (BBC Two) and co-host of chart topping Off Menu podcast, Ed will kick off his brand-new stand-up show on 3rd February 2022 at Leicester’s De Montfort Hall, including three nights at London’s iconic Hackney Empire and finishing at the Oxford Playhouse on 23rd April. Tickets go on general sale on Friday 28th May at 10am with an exclusive fan pre-sale on Thursday 27th May at 10am for those for those signed up to the official mailing list at www.edgamble.co.uk

After a sell-out tour of his house in 2020 (extended into 2021 due to popular demand), Ol’ Broken Pancreas is charged up and ready to flick the switch on another round of attention seeking.

As well as being a co-host on Radio X’s Sunday morning show, TV stand-up appearances include Live at the Apollo (BBC Two), The Royal Variety Performance (ITV1), The Russell Howard Hour (Sky One), Live at the Comedy Store (Comedy Central) and Conan (TBS). His numerous guest appearances include QI (BBC Two), Would I Lie To You (BBC One), Hypothetical (Dave), 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). Ed first came to prominence playing Georgie Carlton in two series of Almost Royal (BBC America/E4/Netflix) and co-wrote series 3 and 4 of Greg Davies’ sitcom Man Down (Channel 4), as well as appearing in two episodes.
