BBC New Talent Hotlist 2017

As seen on BBC Three & as heard on BBC Radio 4

FINALIST BBC New Comedy Award 2015

Cambridge Mathematics drop-out and now professional poker player Ken burst onto the UK comedy scene after reaching the final of the 2015 BBC Radio New Comedy Award. His unique, analytical style made him instantly recognisable and since then, Ken has filmed for BBC Three’s Top Tens and was selected for the BBC New Talent Hotlist in 2017. He has recently had a four-part series commissioned for BBC Radio 4, which will air Autumn 2018.

Ken performed his highly anticipated debut hour, Chinese Comedian, at the Edinburgh Festival this year to high acclaim. He also co-wrote The Canon, a literary sketch show – like sparknotes, only funny. He is the 2017 winner of the coveted Dave Joke Of The Fringe gong.

“It was a smart, impressive and brilliantly funny tour-de-comedy” – Steve Bennett, Chortle

“A fiercely accomplished talent“ – The Scotsman
