Alex Horne is an award-winning comedian who created and co-hosts the popular TV show Taskmaster. He is also known for hosting iTunes chart-topping and Chortle Award nominated podcast Alex Horne Breaks the News.
Alex is also the creator and frontman of The Horne Section. Together, Alex and his five-piece band of multi-talented musicians put a stupidly unique twist to musical comedy. Their show Alex Horne Presents: The Horne Section played to sold-out audiences for five consecutive years at the Edinburgh Fringe, which led them to continue it for three series as a BBC Radio 4 show. The band has made several appearances on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown and is the only band ever to host Never Mind The Buzzcocks. They made their own Christmas mini-special for Sky Arts in 2015 titled A Horne Section Christmas.
Alex’s numerous TV appearances include We Need Answers, Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled, The Matt Lucas Awards, Dara O’Briain’s School of Hard Sums, Dave’s One Night Stand, Celebrity Mastermind, John Bishop’s Christmas Show, Drunk History and The Games That Time Forgot.
Alex is an Edinburgh Fringe veteran, taking nine solo shows to the festival. He earned a Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination in 2014 for his solo show Monsieur Butterfly and a Perrier Newcomer Award nomination for his first show Making Fish Laugh in 2003. He has released two books based on his critically-acclaimed Edinburgh shows Birdwatchingwatching and Wordwatching.
