About

Garry Bushell is one of Britain's best-known pundits and tabloid journalists. His hard-hitting column Bushell On The Box has been published in four national newspapers - The Sun, The Daily Star, the People and the Daily Star Sunday - and he has appeared on more than 2,000 TV and radio shows.

Bob Monkhouse called him "a terrific writer". Roy Hudd dubbed him "the Max Miller of the press"; while Richard Littlejohn describes him as "the best one-liner merchant in Fleet Street". US shock jock Howard Stern once appointed him "my Ambassador in England".

The son of a fireman, Garry was born in Woolwich, south-east London. He began his career as a rock writer on Sounds. He managed the Cockney Rejects, discovered Twisted Sister in a Long Island bar and travelled the world with the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Blondie and Motorhead. He was the first to review U2, the Specials and Bad Manners. In 1984, Garry wrote Iron Maiden's authorized biography 'Running Free' (re-printed four times).

In 1985, while still writing for Sounds, Garry did his first shifts on Fleet Street pop pages, working for the Sun, the Evening Standard and the Daily Mirror. In 1987 he masterminded the Ferry Aid charity single Let It Be which topped the UK charts for three weeks and raised more than £1million for the survivors of the Zebrugge ferry disaster. He rapidly became showbusiness editor and then TV editor of The Sun, before joining the Daily Star as Assistant Editor.

In 1987, Garry began his award-winning Bushell On The Box TV review column which spawned an ITV show of the same name. This ran for two series in 1996 and was Number One on the Night Network with a viewing share high of 68 per cent. Big names, ranging from Barbara Windsor to Ray Winstone and Penn & Teller appeared on the show for free, as did rock bands, comedians, soap stars and underworld characters such as Lenny McClean and Roy Shaw.

Garry has appeared on numerous TV shows ranging from Newsnight to Noel's House Party; these include Drop The Celebrity, I'm Famous & Frightened, Big Brother's Big Mouth, Celebrity Squares, The Weakest Link Celebrity Special (twice), the Harry Hill Show, An Audience with Freddie Starr, GMTV, This Morning and The One Show. His radio credits include a six month stint on TalkSPORT and he currently hosts a monthly pod-cast show devoted to unsigned and indie bands on Total Rock.

Garry Bushell is a highly popular, engaging and entertaining after-dinner speaker, presenter and awards host.
