Ben Miller

Miller's career began while studying for a PhD in solid-state physics at St Catharine's College, Cambridge, when a friend asked him to help ferry around the judges of the National Student Drama Festival, which was being held that year in Cambridge.[7] He consequently met fellow Cambridge student Alexander Armstrong, at the TBA Sketch Comedy Group, a comedy club which ran at the Gate Theatre Studio, Notting Hill, throughout the 1990s. They performed their first full-length show at the Edinburgh Fringe in 1994, and returned in 1996, whereupon they were nominated for the Perrier Comedy Award.[8] Their success resulted in the commissioning of the television series Armstrong and Miller, which ran for four series in total throughout the late 1990s and early 2000s one on the Paramount Comedy Channel, and three on Channel Four. The duo had their own radio show with the same name on BBC Radio 4 in 1998, which featured many of the sketches and characters from their TV series, and a second show, Children's Hour with Armstrong and Miller, later in the same year. After a six-year break, the show was recommissioned for Hattrick Productions as The Armstrong and Miller Show, and is currently in its third series.
