With a career spanning five decades, comic, actor, writer, and presenter Griff Rhys Jones has long been one of Britain’s favourite entertainers.
Griff is perhaps best known for his comedy sketch work on the BBC, regularly appearing in Not The Nine O’Clock News and the iconic Alas Smith and Jones.
A multiple Olivier Award winner, Griff’s on-stage credits include Oliver!, A Christmas Carol, The Miser, and most recently, An Hour and a Half Late. As a presenter and documentarian, he’s explored topics ranging from Charles Dickens and Rudyard Kipling to mountains, cities, and rivers, and has become renowned for his travel documentaries, traversing Australia and Canada for his most recent travellogs, for ITV and Channel 4.
Griff has recently been seen on the BBC as Mr Parker in David Walliams’s Gangsta Granny Strikes Again. 2023 will see Griff touring his brand-new Stand Up show The Cats Pyjamas across the UK.
