Kevin Day came to prominence in the British alternative comedy stand up scene of the late eighties and early nineties, playing clubs like The Comedy Store. This led to him hosting the comedy discussion programme Loose Talk on BBC Radio One from 1992 to 1994, having initially co-hosted with Mark Thomas when the programme was launched in 1991.
He has co-hosted the Channel 5 sports programme Live And Dangerous with Mark Webster.
He has written for Dave Allen, Jo Brand and The 11 O’Clock Show.
In 2005 Day became, and is still, a programme associate for Have I Got News For You and contributes to the writing on the programme delivered by the guest hosts each week. He had previously been a guest on the show in 1991.
In 2005 he played Gary Mills on the news spoof comedy Broken News. Since 2004 he has been a regular on Match of the Day 2. He is an occasional guest presenter on the BBC7 discussion show, Serious About Comedy. He is also a regular on Gabby Logan’s Sunday morning Radio programme on BBC Radio 5 Live. Aside from this, as a Crystal Palace fan, he regularly appears on the fan-made podcast, Five Year Plan Fanzine.
