Alan Carr

Alan Graham Carr is an English comedian and television personality.

Carr was born in Weymouth, Dorset, and spent most of his childhood in Northampton before moving to Chorlton-cum-Hardy, Manchester, where he began his comedy career. Carr's breakthrough was in 2001, winning the City Life Best Newcomer of the Year and the BBC New Comedy Awards. In the ensuing years, his career burgeoned on the Manchester comedy circuit before he became well known for hosting The Friday Night Project with Justin Lee Collins. This led to the release of a short-lived entertainment show Alan Carr's Celebrity Ding Dong in 2008 and, eventually, his popular comedy chat show Alan Carr: Chatty Man, which aired on Channel 4 between 2009 and 2016. Carr often stands in as a team captain on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown.

Carr also hosted a radio show, Going Out with Alan Carr, on BBC Radio 2 between 2009 and 2012 as well as releasing his autobiography Look Who It Is! (2008) and going on three arena tours: Tooth Fairy Live (2007), Spexy Beast Live (2011) and Yap, Yap, Yap! (2015). In 2019, Carr became a judge on RuPaul's Drag Race UK.

Carr has won two British Comedy Awards, two National Television Awards and a BAFTA TV Award
