Ed Gamble is a stand-up comedian, writer, and actor well known as a regular on Mock the Week (BBC2) and for playing the lead role of Georgie Carlton in BBC America’s Almost Royal, a ‘cult US hit’ (The Independent).

Ed has co-written and appeared in four seasons of Greg Davies’ Man Down, along with appearing on numerous shows including The Russell Howard Hour, The Apprentice: You’re Fired, Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central as a headline stand up, Drunk History, Roast Battle, Insert Name Here, Nick Helm’s Comfort Eating, CelebAbility, Dave’s One Night Stand, Virtually Famous, and Sweat the Small Stuff. Ed is also one of a handful of British comedians who have performed stand-up on the US TV show Conan. He has written for Never Mind The Buzzcocks and Ask Rhod Gilbert. Ed has appeared on Russell Howard’s Good News as both a solo stand up and alongside Ray Peacock as part of the double-act Peacock & Gamble. Ed and Ray remain the only act to have made a return appearance on the show.
On stage, Ed has just completed his UK leg of his latest show Mammoth, which sold out the entire run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2017 including extra shows added every weekend. Mammoth was his largest nationwide tour to date, including three nights at London’s Leicester Square Theatre. Ed previously won a Chortle Award in 2014 for Best Compere and has provided national tour support for Greg Davies’ tours in 2017, 2013, and 2012 as well as tour support for Russell Kane and Chris Addison.
