The INCA Awards 2023 are taking place on Thursday 9th November in the Royal Suite at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in the heart of Nottingham city centre.

Every year we employ the services of a professional celebrity host to entertain us and to present the awards ceremony itself and this year INCA are delighted to announce that your host for the evening will be none other than the award winning actor, presenter and comedian Marcus Brigstocke.

Marcus Brigstocke’s exceptional talent was recognized early in his career when he achieved the prestigious BBC New Comedian Award at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1996. Since then, he has solidified his position as a prominent figure in comedy, writing, and acting, captivating sold-out audiences nationwide with his stand-up performances.

BBC Radio 4 has become a second home for Marcus, as he is a regular guest on popular shows such as “I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue,” “The Now Show,” and “Just a Minute.” He has also created and recorded five successful series of his hit show, “Giles Wemmbley-Hogg Goes Off.” Recently, he showcased his comedic prowess alongside Kerry Godliman in two seasons of “The Wilsons Save the World.” In 2018, Marcus’s debut play, “The Red,” commissioned by BBC Radio 4, received the prestigious BBC Audio Drama Award for Best Single Drama. Building on this triumph, Marcus directed a stage adaptation, which earned critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2019.

Marcus boasts an impressive array of television credits, including his role as a team captain on “Argumental” (Dave) and as the host of “The Late Edition” and “I’ve Never Seen Star Wars” (BBC Four). He has also made memorable appearances on shows such as “Live at the Apollo” (BBC One), “Have I Got News for You” (BBC One), “Mock the Week” (BBC Two), “QI” (BBC Two), “Sorry, I’ve Got No Head” (BBC One), “The Late Edition” (BBC Four), and “The 11 O’Clock Show” (Channel 4).

Renowned for his mastery of satirical comedy, Marcus effortlessly delivers scathing and hilarious commentary on a wide range of subjects, including climate change, immigration, loan companies, the Special Relationship, compensation culture, women’s magazines and the EU to name a few.

Marcus has also graced the stages of the West End with his remarkable performances. He received critical acclaim for his portrayal of King Arthur in “Monty Python’s Spamalot” and his role as Station Master Perks in Edith Nesbit’s “The Railway Children” at London’s Waterloo Station in 2011.

In June 2011, Marcus released his book “God Collar,” inspired by his award-winning Edinburgh and West End show. This scathing examination of modern faith will leave readers laughing out loud while prompting introspection about their own beliefs.

Further showcasing his versatility, Marcus starred in the 2016 short film “Never Land,” which drew inspiration from the devastating storms wreaking havoc on the country, as seen through the eyes of a ten-year-old boy.

We look forward to introducing Marcus to you all on the night – I’m sure you’ll make hime very welcome.
