Des Clarke is one of the UK’s most exciting performers. He has made a name for himself as both a highly successful comedian and one of television and radio’s hottest presenters. It all began for Des when he won a nationwide search to host the iconic Saturday morning show SM:TV Live. This weekly two hour broadcast showcased his abilities both as a comedian and presenter, including character sketches, celebrity interviews and comic monologues.
That led to an impressive and diverse TV career with presenting credits ranging from the STV Appeal, Invention SOS, Sportsround, Club Cupid and five years as anchor of BBC Scotland’s Children In Need. Other notable appearances include Live At The Fringe, Bad Language, The Dog Ate My Homework, Celebrity Eggheads and NBC’s Today Show.
Meanwhile Des regularly provides the laughs on Make You Laugh Out Loud, Channel 5’s hugely successful comedy series. He is also a much-loved voice on the airwaves, having woken up central Scotland every morning as the main host of Capital Breakfast with Des Clarke, Steven and Amy. He can now be heard hosting Heart Radio’s Drivetime show.
In addition, Des fronts BBC Radio Scotland’s weekly panel show Breaking the News, taking a satirical look at the week’s headlines.
