Addy Van Der Borgh
Addy van der Borgh has that rare talent of making people laugh as soon as he walks on stage. He is a great performer of highly acclaimed and original material, an ability noticed immediately by the BBC when he appeared on the ‘Stand-up Show’ (BBC1) after only one year as a comedian. He has subsequently appeared on ‘Live at Jongleurs’ and ‘The World Stands Up’ for Sky TV and the BBC3 series from Baby Cow Productions, ‘Brain Candy’. He has also written and co-presented twenty episodes of ‘TV Meltdown’ for Sky 1 with Kirsty Gallacher (2004 / 2005), and has acted in a number of voiceovers for radio and television. Addy recently played the starring role of ‘Jack Watson’ in his first film, ‘Little Things’ for Pandelic Films Addy was the only British comic that was invited to appear in the Twentieth Century Fox Comedy Showcase in Los Angeles in September 2003. With brilliant timing and an array of voices and characters which animate and enliven even the most drab subject matter (computers, museums, libraries) Addy has built a following of fans not just in all the major clubs in Britain (Comedy Store, Jongleurs, Banana Cabaret, Up The Creek, The Glee) but also worldwide, including Spain, France, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Croatia, Switzerland, Dubai, Bahrain, Muscat, Qatar, Hong Kong, Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, Shanghai and Australia. Addy has also performed complete sell out runs at the South Africa Comedy Festival in Cape Town (2002) and the New Zealand International comedy Festival in Auckland (2006) as well as writing and performing three sell out one man shows at the Edinburgh festival (2000, 2002, 2004).
