Stephen has starred in everything from Green Wing to Postman Pat – via Just A Minute, Drunk History and Episodes. He is also a regular on the West End stage.


Stephen Mangan is an acclaimed actor who has appeared in some of the UK’s best TV comedy of recent years, including Episodes, with Matt LeBlanc. He has also starred in the acclaimed BBC drama The Split, and appeared in a number of films including the James Hunt/Niki Lauda biopic Rush and as the voice of Pat in Postman Pat: The Movie.

Stephen came to prominence with his role as the delusional and hilarious, un-PC anaesthetist Guy Secretan in the hit Channel 4 hospital sit-com Green Wing. His on-screen double act with Julian Rhind-Tutt was one of the show’s high points and they carried their characters from the hospital to various locations around the world in a series of Barclaycard ads.

Since then Stephen’s natural ability with a range of comic characterisations has seen him star in shows including I’m Alan Partridge (people still shout ‘Dan!’ at him), Free Agents, Dirk Gently, Adrian Mole: The Cappuccino Years, and The Armando Iannucci Show. He’s also portrayed Tony Blair twice in separate Comic Strip films, and played Arthur Conan Doyle in ITV’s Houdini and Doyle. He also co-wrote and starred in the psychotherapy comedy Hang Ups, and the Sky sitcom Bliss.

A RADA graduate, he has also taken on more serious stage roles in the West End and in touring productions, including The Tempest, The Norman Conquests and A Christmas Carol. He is also the author of the children's tale The Fart that Changed the World and is penning a film adaptation of Harry and the Wrinklies.

Agent Recommendation

The best awards host I've seen all year. If ‘briefability’ were a real word then Stephen has it in spades. The fact that the first winner of the evening ran up to the stage and greeted him with a double high five showed how brilliantly Stephen had immersed himself in the event.
