Alex Horne is a comedian who has performed in the top comedy clubs, pubs and theatres all over Britain including Jongleurs, Downstairs at the Kings Head and The Comedy Store. He has also written for and performed on ITV, BBC 3 and Radio 4.
After a year away from the Fringe, mostly spent wandering around bird reserves up and down the country, Alex is now very excited about returning to Edinburgh with his brand new show. Following his previous three critically acclaimed shows, Alex once again tackles a subject that other comedians would shy away from. Having conquered science, body language and Latin, this year he turns his attention to birdwatchers – or twitchers, birders, dudes, ornithologists, whatever you want to call them – a breed of enthusiasts too often ignored (perhaps feared) by the comedy world. Did Alex see more birds than his Dad? Did he learn to love Birdwatching? And what have Bahrain, Birdworld and Bill Oddie all got in common? Find out in this dramatically true tale from the Perrier Nominee, Chortle Award Winner.and Edinburgh favourite.Wordwatching
On January 25th 2006, comedian and wordsmith Alex Horne celebrated his TKDay – his 10,000th day alive – and decided to mark the event by doing something truly remarkable. Already a successful joke-writer, Alex wanted to take the next logical step, he wanted to devise his own word. He wanted to create a brand new verbal concept and successfully implant it in the English language. Come and see him spread the word further in his most ambitious show yet, a multi-media neologistic bonanza tracking the highs and lows of this secret linguistic campaign.
Alex Horne’s first ever gig came after winning a Christmas Cracker joke writing competition whilst working as Deputy Head of Dairy at Budgens in Midhurst. Since that inauspicious beginning he has managed to establish a remarkable reputation among critics, comics and audiences as a gifted gag-smith, prolific writer and one of the most creative solo performers at work today.
In previous years Alex completed a 45-date national tour with Robert Llewellyn and has written and performed with Craig Charles on ITV and Steve Coogan’s Baby Cow Productions for BBC3. Alex also featured in the celebrated new comedy series Spanking New on Radio 7 and Laugh Out Loud, a documentary with the artist Nicola Green on Radio 4.
