Al is one of the most recognisable and successful comics in the UK with his alter-ego, The Pub Landlord. His British Comedy Award Winning ITV1 series Al Murray’s Happy Hour has delighted both viewers and critics alike with his no nonsense treatment of his celebrity guests. He is also one of the few stand-up comedians to be asked by ITV to perform two "Audience With's...". Al’s sitcom Time Gentlemen Please (Sky One) has become something of a modern day cult classic and his series, Al Murray’s Multiple Personality Disorder (ITV1) saw him introduce a whole host of new characters and demonstrate his vast comedic range.
Al’s other TV appearances as The Pub Landlord includes three appearances on The Royal Variety Performance (ITV1), hosting both Live At The Apollo (BBC1) and Edinburgh and Beyond (Paramount Comedy Channel) and his edgy quiz show Fact Hunt (ITV1). He has also released three best selling live DVDs My Gaff, My Rules, Giving it Both Barrels and The Beautiful British Tour.
Out of character, Al has most recently hosted Al Murray In Germany, BBC Four, an historical series about the art and culture of Germany (without mentioning the War) as well as Have I Got News For You (BBC1) and The Road To Berlin, a 10 episode documentary series on WWII for Discovery.
Al’s huge stand-up tours have made him one of the most popular live comedy acts in the country, with sell out shows including the O2 Arena. He won the Perrier Award (after a record four successive nominations) and secured Olivier Award nominations for both of his celebrated sell-out West End runs. Internationally, Al has forged an enviable reputation with numerous sell-out runs in Melbourne, Sydney, Montreal and New Zealand. Al toured in the autumn of 2010 with his new show Barrel of Laughs. As of February 2011, Al will feature on BBC Radio 5 Live's '7 Day Sunday', a weekly comedic look back at the past seven days.
He has enjoyed great success of late with his Edinburgh Fringe show 'Compete for the Meat' which is what else, a pub quiz! Two special Christmas version of the show have been staged for charity in December 2010. The pub quiz is available in a straight or bespoke version for corporate events.
His Pub Landlord, Book Of British Common Sense, was a best selling title when published in both paperback and hardback with 300,000 sales. His second hit book Think Yourself British was published in hardback in 2009 and was followed in 2010 with his ultimate pub quiz book Al Murray The Pub Landlord’s Great British Pub Quiz Book.
