Mark Dolan is a comedian, television presenter and writer. He is best known for his Channel 4 documentary series, “The World's... and Me”, which featured the world's smallest, tallest and hairiest people, as well as the fattest pet! The show was a critical and ratings success, and the third series was transmitted in 2012.
Mark also hosted all three series of the raucous Channel 4 hit comedy show Balls of Steel, which broadcast from 2005 to 2008. He also hosted a spooky series for Channel Five in 2007, Urban Legends.
Mark Dolan currently indulges his passion for film, as the writer and presenter of Sky's flagship movie show 35mm, in which he reviews the latest cinema releases and interviews the stars behind and in front of the camera. He has hosted 35mm since 2008. He is also a guest contributor on LBC's Breakfast Show.
Mark's debut book, The World's Most Extraordinary People ...and Me, was published in July 2010 by Harper Collins, and is inspired by his hit Channel 4 series. Among the people Dolan writes about are a seven-year-old who can bench press double his bodyweight, and the person who holds the record for the biggest enhanced breasts.
Mark Dolan is one of the UK comedy circuit's most in demand MCs, with a Saturday night residency at Soho's leading comedy venue, the Amused Moose and a successful run of his Edinburgh Festival one man show, I'm Here to Help! in 2007, in which he helped solve the audience's problems. As a live MC, Mark delights audiences with a mix of topical humour, warm audience interaction and an unrivalled, polished delivery.
