Rory Bremner / Mark Dolan

Rory Bremner is perhaps best known for writing and starring in the political satire show Bremner, Bird and Fortune, for nearly twenty years a mainstay of Channel 4’s comedy output.

He won back-to-back BAFTAs for Britain’s Top Comedy Performance in 1995 and 1996, together with three Royal Television Society and two British Comedy Awards.

“Part satirist, part comedian, part impressionist and often all three at once- brilliantly funny and incisive” Matt Stadlen, Daily Telegraph


Mark Dolan is a broadcaster, comedian and writer.

Between doing stand-up and TV appearances, Mark is currently presenting a slot on Fubar Radio, every day from 10am. He also hosted the Sky Movies show 35mm, having previously fronted Balls of Steel, and The World’s…and Me and The Mad Bad Ad Show (all Channel 4). Mark is one of the UK comedy circuit’s most in demand MCs, with a Saturday night residency at Soho’s leading comedy venue, the Amused Moose.

“So funny. Mark Dolan is a master of improvisation and audience interaction. Definitely one not to miss.” **** Fest
