Ed MacArthur (Musical Comedy Awards Finalist 2021) is an actor, comedian and musician. He co-wrote and starred in the smash-hit String V Spitta (‘ingenious’ ***** The Independent, ****The Guardian, **** Chortle) with Kiell Smith-Bynoe. After two sellout runs at Soho Theatre, the BBC have commissioned a pilot OK STOP GOING ON ABOUT IT, ED.

Recent TV credits include Liam in Dreamland (Sky, Merman), Anthony Gilmarsh in Bad Education (BBC, Tiger Aspect), Brad in The Emily Atack Show (ITV2, Monkey Kingdom) and 'cyclist' in Jamie Demetriou's Netflix Special but that underplays my contribution slightly I think.

Ed’s comedy songs have featured on Sky, BBC R4 & BBC RADIO SCOTLAND, with two albums on Spotify and

Apple Music.
