Michael Legge is a stand up comedian, comedy writer, actor, compere, improviser, warm-up; and won the 2009 Chortle Best Off Stage Contribution for his blog, and the 2012 Sony Silver award winner for the on going podcast Do The Right Thing. He co-presented the Absolute Radio Sunday show with Dave Gorman.
