Andrew Hunter Murray writes comedy for BBC Two’s QI and for Private Eye magazine. He is one of the stars of BBC Two’s No Such Thing As The News and two-time Chortle Award-winning podcast No Such Thing As A Fish, and he hosts the critically acclaimed Page 94: The Private Eye Podcast. His début solo show Round One was a sell-out at the Edinburgh Fringe.
His many guest appearances include John Lloyd’s Museum of Curiosity Live, Literary Death Match and BBC Two’s Only Connect.
He has directed, performed and guested with various improv outfits including Marcus Brigstocke’s Unavailable for Comment, Monkey Toast, Folie à Deux, Grand Theft Impro, Baby Wants Candy and Freshly Pressed.
He also writes comedy scripts, principally (and inexplicably) for Norwegians, and wrote for Afterliff, the sequel to John Lloyd and Douglas Adams’ bestseller The Meaning of Liff. As a stand-up, he was a semi-finalist in the So You Think You’re Funny competition.
