TO GET IN TOUCH WITH LOGAN MURRAY.!!
Logan Murray is a cracking comedian who has been everywhere and done everything. He is also a versatile actor, performer, and writer. Over the years he has clocked up numerous appearances on shows like 'Packet of Three' (Channel 4), 'London Underground' (USA's Comedy Central), 'Pebble Mill' (BBC 1),'The Pallbearer's Review' (BBC 2), Channel Four's History of Swearing 'The Greatest ***** Show on TV', ‘Jerriatrick’, (Channel Four) ‘People Like Us’ (BBC 2), ‘Peep Show’ (Channel Four), ‘Brain Candy' (BBC 3) and Jimmy Perry's radio series 'London Calling'. He has also hosted two kid's TV shows: 'Connect Four' (a quiz show) and 'Virtually Impossible' (a virtual reality game show).
Logan is also one half of the infamous ‘90s double act ‘Bib and Bob’ with Jerry Sadowitz. They have appeared all over the country at festivals and had a West End run at the Criterion Theatre: the Police were called twice and the critics lauded it as the best bad taste show ever!
He wrote and presented ‘Karaoke Fishtank’ on Channel Four, a late-night pop show where he was allowed to be very bitter and twisted.
He has gatecrashed the Lord Mayor’s Parade as Norman Lamont for ‘The Mark Thomas Comedy Project’ (Channel Four) and sang ‘Je ne Regret Rien’ from the back of a truck to five million bewildered viewers.
But his proudest moment in a glittering showbiz career was supplying all the voices for 'The Beano's Dennis the Menace and Gnasher TV Show'.
You might have seen him recently as Ronnie Rigsby, who has his own website, here.
You will laugh more, you will play more and you will learn more about your creative processes than you ever thought possible.
People who have been taught by Logan Murray have gone on to win every major comedy award, including The Perrier, Channel 4’s ‘So You Think You’re Funny’, ‘Chortle Awards’, ‘Funny Women’, ‘Leicester Mercury Comedy Award' and 'Laughing Horse New Act of the Year’.
Many graduates from the workshops not only work now as professional comedians all around the World, but they also have become household names, panel show regulars, sitcom actors, TV and radio writers, and even bonefide Film Stars!
Logan Murray takes a special pride in helping you unlock your own unique comic voice. Some courses actively encourage a generic style of comedy - we help you to be the comedian you want to be. Logan is proud to say that there is nothing remotely generic about his graduates.
