Kevin Day is a stand-up comedian and writer, with a career spanning several decades, including writing with and for Bob Monkhouse, Ronnie Corbett and Dave Allen. To date, Kevin writes on a number of hit panel shows - among them HAVE I GOT NEWS FOR YOU (BBC), 8 OUT OF 10 CATS (C4), THE MASH REPORT (BBC), THE LAST LEG (C4), and A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN (Sky 1) – as well as a host of other programmes, ranging from the BBC SPORTS PERSONALITY OF THE YEAR to CHILDREN IN NEED.
Kevin’s sports speciality spread to his presenting work too, including spots on BBC2's MATCH OF THE DAY 2, and as a regular voice on Radio 4 and part of BBC 5 Live's coverage of the Cheltenham Festival, which won a Sony Gold Award. Kevin has also won the Time Out Comedy Award, a Writers' Guild award (for his work with Dave Allen) and, the one he is most proud of - the 2007 ProMax award for Best Interstitials, for a series of Christmas promos on More4 featuring a very grumpy Santa.
His legendary 1993 Edinburgh show I WAS A TEENAGE RACIST has more recently been followed with a triumphant return to the comedy circuit in 2014, fronting his new full-length comedy show STANDY UPPY, followed by HAIRLINE in 2015. In 2016 he became the first ever comedian to play a show at the Tower of London.
