Full disclosure: We’ve been HUGE fans of Millsy since In Bed With Medinner, before which he was already a firm favourite on the UK club circuit.
A favoured regular pundit on Radio Five’s Fighting Talk as well as Radio 4’s News Review – and really there aren’t many acts that can straddle both those worlds.
Bob also co-hosts ESPN’s football show ‘On The Ball’ and a favoured act on our Funny Fokkers Comedy Tour for The RAF.
Of course, it would be silly not to mention Bob’s illustrious past, from the aforementioned In Bed With Medinner to the cutting edge marvel (some would say it was just a little ahead of it’s time) that was ‘The Show’ – a reality show exposing the back and front stage antics of the chat show game.
There’s so much that Bob Mills has achieved it really puts most other acts to shame… over a hundred episodes of the cult student show Win, Lose or Draw (check out the guest roll call for that show! Denise Van Outen, Nick Hancock, Lionel Blair, Davina McCall, Ricky Tomlinson…um Bobby Ball…); Wrote two series of Bob Martin for Barrymore; Two different series for Robson Green – Christmas Lights and Northern Lights.
Oh, and then there’s the BAFTA nomination for the movie script ‘Pierrepoint’ with Timothy Spall as well as penning some episodes of ‘Shameless’.
Bob has such a wealth of experience you can pretty much put him anywhere and he will entertain – he always has us in stitches in the Bespoke Comedy Transporter (unless he’s singing fragments of songs from the seventies). A great host, a brilliant comedian and an unbeatable auctioneer.
One more thing, we’ve put our money where our mouth is and we’re currently in talks with ITV about dusting off the IBWMD archives… plans afoot we have!
