Al Murray was nominated for a Perrier so many times that the cognoscenti deemed him too popular to win. But the Pub Landlord is a phenomenon. He did finally win the award, and Time Gentlemen Please established Al as a comedy character of national importance.
Al reached a new audience with an impressive performance on Gordon Ramsay's Hell's Kitchen. A big new ITV show followed. Al Murray's Happy Hour has seen the landlord playing host to some fine examples of British manhood, from Terry Venables to Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.
Away from the boozer Al produced a credible Neil Diamond impression on Stars in Their Eyes; and in Al Murray's Multiple Personality Disorder he brings a fresh cast of characters. He also appears as himself on Mock the Week and QI, and presents historical documentaries on Discovery.
In cabaret The Pub Landlord continues his mission to put the Great back into Britain and the ale back into the Daily Mail. The strength of his passion for Queen and country and open disdain for our European cousins might be a touch politically incorrect, but it wins roars of approval from audiences.
"He was really lovely, stayed around for ages and donated his pub landlord jacket for us to auction!" Wickes
