After Death in Paradise, Primeval and an Edwardian homage to the Olympics with his comedy partner, Ben turns his attention to physics.


Biography

Half way through a PhD in Physics at Cambridge University, Ben Miller met Alexander Armstrong. Instead of finishing his PhD, they chose to scrap science for comedy and started playing at 'The Comedy Club Footlights', Cambridge. After four years of touring pubs and underground comedy clubs the pair appeared on Saturday Night Live as Euro-Rock duo Strijka.

In 1996 the duo were nominated for the Perrier Award and were given their first commissioned series Armstrong and Miller. The two have gone on to establish themselves as one of the country’s most popular sketch duos.

Alongside the writing and performing partnership, Ben also acted in a range of comic and dramatic roles stretching from Casualty to Johnny English, Doc Martin to Moving Wallpaper. More recently he’s established his acting credentials in popular series Death in Paradise and Primeval. He’s also played the Sheriff of Nottingham in Doctor Who, a Liberal Democrat candidate in Ballot Monkeys, and perhaps most improbably, the voice of Johnny Vegas’ sidekick Monkey.
