SUE PERKINS
Representing Agent: Debi Allen
Roles: Presenter, Actor, Comedian, Writer
BIOGRAPHY:
Writer, presenter and broadcaster, the hugely talented Sue Perkins has been a firm favourite on British television for nearly fifteen years. Together with her presenting partner, Mel Giedroyc, she entertained the nation with her unique brand of wit on the popular Light Lunch which ran for
five series before transferring to an evening slot with the imaginatively titled, Late Lunch. Together they jumped and shouted their way through countless hours of television, marking the start of a double act that has lasted for seventeen years.

Over the years, Sue has worked on a wide range of solo projects, including documentaries on art, popular fiction and history. In 2008 she appeared on the BBC show Maestro, which she won, culminating in her conducting at The Last Night of the Proms. She has also collaborated with the food critic, Giles Coren on a number of programmes including The Supersizers series, where they got to experience food from a variety of historical periods, including sow's udder pate, Bovine Bread and Butter Pudding, Duck Tongues and several thousand bottles of wine.

2013 was another busy year, with the premiere of Sue’s own sitcom Heading Out of which she is the writer, star & producer. Playing Sara – a veterinarian so skilled, she can spay a tortoise one-handed, and was aired on BBC2 in February 2013. As well as this Sue presented the third series of The Great British Bake Off which had record breaking viewers and moves to BBC1 this year.

2012 was a great year for Sue with her sitcom being commissioned for BBC 2 as a co-production with Square Peg TV and Red Productions. She also traveled to Vietnam and Thailand for a second series of World's Most Dangerous Roads, this time with Liza Tarbuck as her driving partner.

Sue has been concentrating on some of her own development projects, namely new Radio 4 panel show
Dilemma, which sees Sue posing a series of moral and ethical dilemmas to a panel of comics, journalists and other great thinkers of our time. At the end of 2011 Sue worked on a TV project as a co-production between her own production company Square Peg tv and Northern Upstart which traces the story of the real Von Trapp family - it was broadcast as Climbed Every Mountain at Christmas2012.

Sue has appeared on numerous panel shows including QI, Have I Got News For You and
Argumental on TV and The News Quiz and Just a Minute on Radio. She has also contributed regularly to News Night Review and The Culture Show. As well as radio and TV Sue also contributes to various columns in magazines, most recently with a regular feature in BBC Homes & Antiques and Waitrose Weekend magazines.

2011 saw Sue embracing adventure as she was flown off to Alaska with Charley Boorman to film an episode of World’s Most Dangerous Roads. The show followed Charley and Sue as they made their way alone, along the Dalton Highway, in Alaska. Closer to home, Sue also co-presented All Roads
Lead Home where she learnt important tips of natural navigation alongside Stephen Mangan and Alison Steadman and explored her much loved home of Cornwall.

Sue has developed a name for herself as a bit of a foodie and has worked on a number of food related programmes aside from those she has made with Giles Coren. These include The Big Food Fight and notably The Great British Bake Off, with her double-act partner Mel Giedroyc.

Sue has just finished filming a six month epic adventure up the Mekong river known as the ‘Mother of Water’. Her adventure will explore the lives of the people from the paddy fields of Vietnam to the mountains of Tibetan Plateau. Sue’s life-changing, heart-warming and sometimes humorous journey will be broadcast on BBC2 in the summer.
