Cheltenham Comedy Festival Finale 2017
English comedian, writer and actor, best known for starring in the mystery series Jonathan Creek and the panel show QI.
Alan began his career in stand-up comedy in 1988 and was runner-up in the City Limits New Act of the Year contest 1989. He was named Time Out Best Young Comic in 1991 and made his network television debut on Tonight with Jonathan Ross in 1992. In 1993 he was nominated for a British Comedy Award as Best Newcomer. Since then, Alan has gone on to appear on TV and on the stage, winning Best Actor in a Drama at the Monte Carlo Television Awards for his 2001 role of Bob in Russel T Davies’ Bob And Rose.
One of the best stand-up comics out there… packed with deft silliness and shrewd observation -The Guardian
Winner of ITV’s Show Me The Funny, this half-Iranian, half-Middlesborough comic is a rising star on the comedy circuit. Full of an insatiable lust for life, his exuberant comedy greets the audience like a sex-starved spaniel would greet a trouser leg.
A natural-born performer, he exudes charisma from the stage (and often off it, when he scuttles into the crowd…!)

One sometimes doubts that Britain’s got talent, but Parris has it in spades’ -The Guardian
He was such a hit at our finale last year we’ve invited him back to compere the proceedings this year!
