Ed Pownall
                                                                                                                  
Why use this man?

In October 2013 BBC comedy sketch writer and regular broadcaster on both sides of the Atlantic with NBC, CNN, BBC2 & talkSPORT Ed decided to merge the two disciplines and start his stand-up career. You can expect well-researched observations on everything from pigeons to regional accents from a 41 year-old international broadcaster; grumpy but not aggressive, rude but not crude.

Highlights since then:

Recently Ed managed to 'beat The Gong' at The Comedy Store (Mon 24th February 2014), this brutal monthly test of a comedians skills is in front of a 500-strong audience looking for blood! 34 went to the sword on Monday, 24th February and only 4 made it through

Ed has regularly performed as part of the Comedy Heat’s Vagabond Troupe at The Cornershop in Shoreditch alongside the likes of Dane Baptiste and Jonathan Hearn

Where else?: The Wenlock & Essex in Islington, The Betsey Trotwood, The Duke's Head in Putney, the Blue Posts, Soho, and Dirty Dicks in Liverpool Street & The Camden Head, Jongleurs Covent Garden & Battersea.

I can send a file of a 5 minute set or to get a flavour here’s a short snippet from the Angel Comedy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bcmU4OB6PU&feature=youtu.be

On the non-comedic broadcast side Ed had a regular betting slot on BBC2's Daily Politics show as Ed The Bookie for 5 years. It was a light-hearted look at what topics would come up on Prime Ministers Question Time – so I would pick 3 words before PMQs and give them odds as to which would be said the most often during the session. Hilarious, eh!? He was also a daily contributor for talkSPORT radio for 5 years and in the US for NBC and CNN.

Comedian reference Dane Baptiste said: "Your set was amazing, we were all impressed. I loved the material, and you always consider it a compliment that a lot of your material had me especially thinking..."that's so good, wish I thought of that!"

Booker reference: Stephen Watson, LaughingPod.com:

"Sometimes you create the perfect comedy night and last night was one of them nights. We had a fantastic venue and a great audience which everyone wants then the perfect line up.

We had the fantastic Jojo Georgiou as the host and the troops loved her. Then we had a fantastic opening 1st half with David Alfie Ward and Leo Kearse both were on top forum.

The second half was also top draw we started with Ed Pownall who I thought was great..."

'Celeb'-boasts:

Catherine Russell AKA Serena Campbell from Holby City: "Loved your's; really original, cynical and funny."

Alan Brazil, talkSPORT Breakfast Show Host: "Brilliant, pal! We had a great night, thank you."
