Rufus Hound



Rufus Hound's career has encompassed comedy, acting, musical theatre and presentation as well as being the owner of a very fine moustache.

Rufus likes: rum, kites, tattoos, Nintendo, driving, Las Vegas (where he got married), making his kid laugh, Scrabble, television and steak.

He doesn't like: football, Westlife, Tequila, sportless exercise, leafy salad, ill-manners, the widespread disregard for the three lane motorway system and of course, hecklers.

He presented the final Top of The Pops and is a regular on panel shows for Dave and BBC3. In 2010 he took part in the BBC's Sports Relief, and performed as Cheryl Cole to great acclaim and hilarity - the lady herself was even said to be a fan.

As an actor, Rufus appeared in Think Tank on E4, and as the producer in bad-taste-TV-show-idea-brainstorm internet short Life's A Pitch.
