Born in Grimsby, Griffith is a comedian, actor, presenter and classically trained choral singer who has become a regular on UK television screens over the past few years. After training as a singer at the University of Exeter, Griffith turned his hand to stand up in the early 2010s. 


His early experience of life in the public eye came with a slew of comedy shorts and appearances on BBC Radio’s Comedy Lounge in 2014 as well as tour support slots with the likes of Rob Beckett and Jack Whitehall.


Griffith’s TV career kicked off with the BBC show ‘Taxi to Training’, a series in which he would interview various Premier League footballers on their journey to training. This was his first dip into the world of sport later became a host on Soccer AM, landing a recurring role in hit comedy Ted Lasso and running his own YouTube series, ‘Premier League Fan Reactions’.


Other credits include ‘Drunk History’, ‘Sweat the Small Stuff’, E4’s ‘8 out of 10 Cats’, BBC drama ‘It’s a Sin’, Netflix gameshow ‘Flinch’ and the critically acclaimed BBC 2 documentary, ‘Can You Beat the Bookies’. Griffith also sang at a number of football grounds following the death of the Queen earlier this year.

After the comedian’s last tour was interrupted by the pandemic and ended up lasting much longer than expected, he is back with his biggest stand-up run to date. Fans can expect Griffith’s normal mix of classic comedy, dubious impressions and even some singing.
