Ed Gamble

Ed Gamble (Edward Stephenson Jamison Gamble) is an English comedian. He studied at Durham University, where he began his comedy career performing with the Durham Revue, and was a finalist in the 2007 Chortle Student Comedy Awards.

Ed's early work was alongside Ray Peacock, with whom he presented two different series of podcasts, totalling over 100 episodes. He also appeared on television, performing a 15-minute set on the extended version of Russell Howard's Good News in late 2010. He performed with Peacock at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2011, 2012 and 2013. Ed also recorded a series of radio shows with Peacock on FUBAR Radio.

In 2014, Ed debuted solo at Edinburgh Fringe with the show "Gambletron 5000", returning in 2015 with "Lawman" and in 2016 with "Stampede". His stand-up performances contain much observational comedy, often aimed at himself, including discussion of his diabetes, which he was diagnosed with as a teenager; he chose that as the central topic of his 2018 Edinburgh Fringe show "Blizzard" and his Amazon special, "Blood Sugar".

Ed has been a regular panellist on the BBC panel show Mock the Week since July 2015, and also appeared with Amy Hoggart, in Almost Royal, a faux-reality show on BBC America in the same year. They played a brother and sister, Georgie and Poppy Carlton. The show was shown on E4 in the UK and was followed by a second series in 2016. He has guest-hosted the Elis James and John Robins Show on Radio X in 2017 and 2018. Ed presents the Off Menu with Ed Gamble and James Acaster podcast with fellow comedian James Acaster since 2018, and a weekly Radio X show with Matthew Crosby since 2019. Also in 2019, Ed appeared in the ninth series of Taskmaster.

In October 2020, Gamble began presenting Taskmaster The Podcast. It is a companion of the TV show of the same name, in which the tenth series aired on Channel 4 since moving from the Dave TV channel.
