Clive Anderson has long been established as one of Britain's wittiest TV and Radio presenters, known for his sardonic quips and legendary put-downs.
Clive first came to prominence through the award-winning show Who’s Line Is It Anyway?, which first aired over the radio (BBC Radio 4) before transferring to TV for a long run on Channel 4, winning a BAFTA in 1989. After this, Clive went on to host an impressive 10 series of Clive Anderson Talks Back, winning British Comedy Awards in 1991 and 1992. This led to another highly successful TV show with a similar format, Clive Anderson All Talk (1996-2001). Clive has also been a regular guest on panel shows such as Have I Got News for You and QI. To top all of these achievements, he had hosted the Last Night of the Proms.
Clive's razor sharp observational humour, honed through having spent 15 years as a barrister, made him one of the country's leading sketch writers, with comedy scripts for the likes of Frankie Howerd, Griff Rhys Jones and Mel Smith.
Clive combines his continuing interest in the law with his role as a presenter in the regularly aired radio series Unreliable Evidence (BBC Radio 4).
With a huge back catalogue of experience and offering a wickedly sharp comedy edge and attention to detail in all of his performances, Clive makes the perfect After Dinner Speaker, and is equally adept at Awards and Conference Hosting, and other Corporate Events.
