Sidetracked by youthful addictions, and making up for it with an incredibly intense approach, Marcus Brigstocke produces brilliant political comedy underpinned by passion and rigorous research. Find out what it’s like to storm a commercial club with stuff that you no longer believe in, why The Telegraph regard Marcus as a traitor, and the one thing about comedy that breaks his heart.
Marcus talks to Fred Macaulay about his experience on The Jump and gives Fred some tips about jumping.
The Jump aftermath
Marcus’ crash on tonight’s The Jump
Shlomo’s Glastonbury diary featuring BBC Radio 4’s MARCUS BRIGSTOCKE challenging BELLATRIX (World Female Beatbox Champion 2009) to a battle of the beats.
Marcus is out of The Jump final. Unfortunately, he hurt his knee, so he won’t be able to race or perform the final jump. Sir Steve Redgrave also pulled out of the competition, leaving only Donal McIntyre and Joe McElderry.
Thanks to Heather for the great caps!!
Tonight is the last push! Marcus is in the Final! He finished 2nd on the Speed Skiing and then, beat Ritchie Neville on the Technical Slalom race. Tonight, he’s up against Donal McIntyre, Sir Steve Redgrave and Joe McElderry and he will have to jump, so again, send good vibes in his way!
Ps: Melinda, don’t touch Marcus’ banana, please…
Marcus WON the Speed Skating! Because of that, he is now the only contestant who still hasn’t jumped. Tomorrow is the semi-final, 2 events: the Technical Slalom and the Speed Skiing. Do send him good vibes, he’s tired, he’s going to need it!
