Famous Comedian, writer, presenter and all-round entertainer Mark Dolan is probably best known as the Balls of Steel presenter on the UK comedy television show, notorious for daring stunts and hidden camera pranks. Mark has 45 acting and guest appearance credits on various television shows. He has headed up Sky Movie programmes Popcorn and 35mm and lent his quirky humour to such programmes as the Mad Bad Ad Show, Celebrity Come Dine With Me, The Last Word, Taxi Gags, The Comedy Summit and Show Me The Funny.
He also fronted three series of the hit documentary, The World’s...And Me in which he explored the world to meet the planet’s most extraordinary people, from the smallest man and hairiest man to a man with 84 children and the tallest woman in the world. A book followed, called The World’s Most Extraordinary People and Me. A second book came from the same series, called Do You Mind If I Put My Hand On It? which further details his globe-trotting experiences. Mark is as a stand-up comedian that Mark first shot to fame and continues to make his name – either in the intimate environment of a private party or at large corporate events.
Among the organisations that have called on Mark’s talents to make their events memorable for guests are the Financial Times, Samsung and Sony. A finalist in the Channel 4 stand-up comedian competition So You Think You’re Funny, Mark Dolan has appeared regularly at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for over ten years. His 2016 Edinburgh Fringe show Life Hacks was an absolute sell out. Mark lists his hobbies as drinking tea, reading and agreeing with his wife – he is also a regular performer at Soho’s comedy venue The Amused Moose.
Dolan has won Celebrity Come Dine With Me, co-hosted the panel show, If Katie Hopkins Ruled The World and has recorded Mark Dolan’s VIP Lounge where he chats to more quirky real-life people; mermaids, vampire hunters and brick eaters among others. Mark is a stunning host and comic with a genuine talent and fun charm. Audiences treasure Mark’s down to earth personality and charisma, while his quick wit and clever punchlines make him perfect for tying the knots at your event.
