Ed MacArthur is an actor, comedian and musician. He co-wrote and starred in the smash-hit String V Spitta (‘ingenious’ ***** The Independent, *****Daily Mail, **** Evening Standard, ****The Guardian, **** Chortle) with Kiell Smith-Bynoe. After three sellout runs at Soho Theatre and a sellout run at the Edinbugh Fringe Festival, the BBC have commissioned a pilot OK STOP GOING ON ABOUT IT, ED.

Recent credits include John in Things You Should Have Done (BBC, Rough Cut), Mamil in Five Blind Dates (Amazon Film), 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 regularly feature on The Now Show, with two albums on Spotify and

Apple Music.
