A former President of Footlights at Cambridge, Clive Anderson performed stand-up extensively around the world. He has written for, amongst others, Frankie Howerd and "Smith and Jones".

His first major appearance on screen came about when producer Dan Patterson persuaded Clive to host Whose Line... This led on to two talk shows, the political parody game show If I Ruled the World and a number of other programmes. He also does a lot of radio work.


Clive is a barrister of 30-odd years standing by profession, although his time is increasingly taken up with comedy.

He hosted "Wogan" in Terry Wogan's absence in 1991.
