“An absolute natural, marrying Stewart Lee-style joke deconstruction to scathing one-liners worthy of Jack Dee… undoubtedly destined for greatness”
Evening Standard

“A natural gagsmith who looks so comfortable behind a mic stand you’d be forgiven for thinking he’d been doing stand up for a decades”
The Guardian


The award-winning Joe Wilkinson is one of the nation’s best-loved comedians and most recognised faces on television. His distinct style and unusual wit has made him the star of 8 Out of 10 Cats (Channel 4) and its spin-offs: Cats does Countdown and Cats does Deal or No Deal. He has acted in numerous comedy series such as: BBC Three’s hit sitcom Him and Her as series regular Dan; the hugely popular Miranda (BBC One) as Norman; in Ricky Gervais’s Derek (Channel 4); Drunk History (Comedy Central); and Still Open All Hours (BBC One) as Wayne.   He was most recently seen on screen as Madam Haystacks in the self-penned Giddy Up Gunty (created with writing partner David Earl) in 2017 as a short film for Sky.

Since embarking on his stand-up career in 2004, Joe has performed in comedy clubs up and down the country and has earned critical acclaim, an aspect of his career which continues today. In 2008, 2009 and 2010, Joe took his own sketch show up to the Festival Two Episodes of Mash with Diane Morgan.  The pair received great reviews and praise for the shows.
