Bob Mills is a true elder statesman of British stand-up comedy. The man who bridged the gap between the first wave of “alternative comedy” in the mid-eighties and the new laddism of the early ’90s, star Bob Mills is as popular today as when he first strolled on to the comedy circuit in 1985.
Now approaching his silver jubilee as a stand-up comic, Bob is one of the most recognisable and respected comedians in the business. His voice is pretty famous too as not a weekend goes past without Bob and his distinctive cockney drawl getting an airing not once but several times as either a host or guest on the numerous sports, comedy and current affairs that dominate the airwaves.
For although Bob Mills may have been born in Chester, it was only a brief stop, Bob is a dyed-in-the-wool Londoner and proud of it. Particularly the East End, home to both Mills himself and more importantly (to him at least) his beloved Leyton Orient Football Club. Bob Mills writes a regular column for the O’s match day programme.
