A good mix of stand-up, silly voices, noises and verbal acrobatics Time Out
Mark Felgate's startling abilities as a ventriloquist, combined with guitar playing and a wickedly daft sense of humour, have helped him become a sought after act on the stand-up comedy circuit. Performing without a dummy, Mark throws his voice to create sidesplitting routines on school life, freaking out drunks and pallbearers and the vagaries of censorship.
His performances include a slew of silly voices, noises, vocal acrobatics, twisted songs and guitar histrionics.
Mark has performed in Japan, Singapore, Germany, France, Holland, Malta, Hungary, Cyprus, Poland, Prague and Croatia and is no stranger to the Edinburgh Festival, having done numerous shows there.
He is also an actor and presenter and has appeared in numerous short films, including the award-winning, "Arthur's Amazing Things," directed by Martin Gooch and starring Emily Booth, Linsey Dawn McKenzie and Leslie Phillips. He starred in and wrote, "Lipsmackin" a pilot for BBC Three, was the winning comedian on "Gagging For It" (Channel 5) and taught Ant and Dec how to do ventriloquism on "Saturday Night Take-Away" (ITV).
He played Dewey in two series of the BBC Radio 4 sitcom "Elephants to Catch Eels" from the writers of "Dead Ringers".
For six years Mark presented on Nickelodeon, where he fronted the shows, "The Crunch", "MeTV", "Nick Heads" and "Slime across the UK". Mark also performed in Nickelodeon's flagship Saturday show "Ross Lee's Ghoulies" playing Tarquin the Zombie butler and Mr Budgie, Ross's pet head in a birdcage. He also appeared in a broadcast pilot for Aardman (the creators of Wallace and Gromit) on CBBC called "Men in Coats", a show that combined fast-paced visual comedy and illusion with Mark starring as Moe; one of the Men in Coats.
