Comic booked for #BE2017

Comedian Alex Horne has been confirmed as guest presenter at the bodyshop Event and Awards 2017.

The award-winning comedian is the creator and host of BAFTA, Royal Television Society, Broadcasting Press Guild and Broadcast Award nominated show Taskmaster, and has made multiple other television appearances, as well as starring at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and in sell-out West End productions.

Alex will host the bodyshop Event and Awards with The Horne Section, his five-piece jazz band that effortlessly blurs the line between comedy and music. Often unpredictable but always entertaining, The Horne Section covers a range from comic songs to stand-up routines, sketches to storytelling.

The bodyshop Event & Awards 2017 takes place at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole on 28-29 September. The event of the year is only possible thanks to the support of headline partners AkzoNobel and Enterprise Rent-A-Car, and partners Autoglass BodyRepair, Al-Futtaim Auto Centers, Audatex, CAPS, Car-O-Liner, EMACS, GT Motive Estimate, IAEA, LKQ Coatings, NBRA, NIBS, S&B Automotive Academy, Sikkens Autocoat BT, Thatcham Research, Upol, Veetec Motor Group and Vizion.
