Show Info

Michael is a stand up, writer, actor, compere, improviser, warm-up and won the 2009 Chortle Best Off Stage Contribution for his blog, and the 2012 Sony Silver award winner for the on going podcast Do The Right Thing. He co-presented the Absolute Radio Sunday show with Dave Gorman. He will be at The Edinburgh Festival again this year with his new show, following the success of previous shows, ‘Tell it Like It Is’, ‘Steve’, ‘Free Wifi’ and ‘What A Shame’. He also performs occasionally with Robin Ince in Righteous Ire, Pointless Anger.

An improvisational master, Michael Legge is a unique comic talent, whose years of working off-the-cuff, make him critic’s dream. More experienced than his youthful, smiley looks and persona would suggest, his cheeky, lively and charming persona hide a bite that keeps every audience on the edge of their seats. In demand across the country, on TV Michael Legge has appeared with such diverse artists as Jack Docherty, Morwenna Banks and Melinda Messenger.
