Marc Wootton

Marc Wootton has established himself as one of Britain's edgiest comedy writers and performers with a diverse career spanning radio, television and film. Wootton's success has been acknowledged with multiple awards, including the ISP Gold Award for writing, the inaugural BBC Greenlight Award and the Rose D'or. His live show, Cyderdelic, sold out in Edinburgh and was snapped up by Channel Four's groundbreaking 11'oclock show, which launched the careers of top comedians such as Sasha Baron-Cohen and Ricky Gervais. Subsequently, Cyderdelic became a critically acclaimed television series that Wootton wrote and starred in for the BBC.

His next vehicle, My New Best Friend, won him a British Comedy Award for Best New Show. He then wrote and performed the title character in High Spirits with Shirley Ghostman. His portrayal of the psychic Shirley was filmed in front of a live audience who all believed the character was a real person. Wootton also wrote and starred in Marc Wootton: Exposed, a sketch series on BBC3 last year. Other television credits include Nighty Night, French & Saunders, Gavin & Stacey and BBC2's comedy drama Thin Ice.

Wootton's evolution into feature films has also been a great success with appearances in box office hits such as Confetti, Frequently Asked Questions about Time Travel, and most recently a co-starring role in Nativity.
