Andy Hamilton is one of Britain’s best loved comedians, known to millions for his appearances on TV, where his witty ripostes have graced many a panel show, including Have I Got News For You and QI.
Andy first came to notice while performing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in the 1970s, joining the BBC in 1976 as a comedy writer. His early radio work, mostly on BBC Radio 4, included writing sketches for the shows Week Ending, The News Huddlines and The Million Pound Radio Show. He went on to co-write and co-create the classic TV sitcom Drop the Dead Donkey and the BBC1 sitcom Outnumbered. In addition, he was both writer and director of the BBC TV and radio sitcom Trevor's World Of Sport. Other work includes sketches for Not The Nine O'Clock News, Alas Smith And Jones, and The Armstrong And Miller Show.
On radio, Andy is a regular contributor to BBC Radio 4's News Quiz and an occasional panellist on I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue. He also took on the role of Satan, no less, in his radio play Old Harry's Game, for which he won a Sony Award.
