BIOGRAPHY:
"The actor Kevin Eldon", as he is occasionally referred to in self-mocking style, has been a reliable presence in both leading and supporting roles in many successful comedies over the last three decades. He started his career as a character based stand-up comic, his most famous and popular creation being political poet Paul Hamilton, before subsequently collaborating with many of the top names in British comedy and TV. Early work with Stewart Lee and Richard Herring (most notably playing dysfunctional hobbyist Simon Quinlack) led to subsequent successful collaborations with Julia Davies (as put upon and not actually dead husband Terry in Nighty Night and more recently in Award winning Sky Atlantic series Hunderby), Armando Iannucci, Steve Coogan and Chris Morris.

He has appeared in almost every notable British comedy series in some form of another, including roles in Brass Eye, Smack the Pony, Spaced, Black Books, Saxondale, I'm Alan Partridge, Nighty Night, Green Wing, Nathan Barley, Harry and Paul and the seminal Big Train & Jam.

As well as being a brilliant collaborator, Kevin has also had huge success with his own solo projects. He created and starred in his own BBC2 sketch show It’s Kevin which was a critical success. He also has his own Radio 4 sketch show Kevin Eldon Will See You Now which has broadcast two series and has just finished recording the third. In 2015 he had a 30 minute comedy commissioned for Sky Arts’ ‘Playhouse Presents…’ season called ‘Brilliantman’ which he wrote and starred in.

In 2016 he appeared as Martin in Damned for Channel 4 and played John Vere in BBC's revival of Hancock's Half Hour. He also featured in Red Dwarf and Game of Thrones.

In October 2015 Kevin voiced the character Penfold in the eagerly awaited BBC revival of Danger Mouse alongside Alexander Armstrong and Dave Lamb. The series was commissioned for a second series in 2016.

As a film actor Kevin has had a wide range of success and he has appeared in numerous films including Martin Scorsese’s Oscar winning Hugo and hit British Comedies Hot Fuzz (dir Edgar Wright) and Chris Morris’ BAFTA Award winning Four Lions along with Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Kevin is also a published Author – in August 2014, Kevin's biography of his poet character Paul Hamilton was published by Faber and Faber. My Prefect Cousin [sic] is described as ‘the elusive story of this hapless poet whose work has been snubbed by the poetry community and publishers for years’.

Praise for It’s Kevin
‘A singular pleasure from a brilliantly eccentric comedic presence’ - TIME OUT ****

‘...then there's the ingenuity of the structure, a ragbag of sketches and spoofs that pretends to be a free-form mess and is anything but.’ - THE INDEPENDENT

Praise for Kevin’s stand-up
‘His material is so original, well observed and meticulously written, his mastery of it so complete...’ THE TELEGRAPH *****

'It's all here, deft comedy and scenes of mild controversy. A mixed bag in the right way." – THE INDEPENDENT ****

'...Eldon has the audience eating out of the palm of his hand...The pace and variety of his show is breathtaking. Eldon has a genius for finding the humour in everything, setting a standard that's hard for other comedians to match.' - The Stage

Praise for My Prefect Cousin:
‘Eldon writes both prose and verse with a wonderfully dry, understated wit, with an instinct for the perfect choice of words that will mock with devastating subtlety’-CHORTLE.CO.UK
