Britain’s Best Retailer Awards 2010 has announced today that comic actor Steve Furst will act as compere at the event.
Furst began his professional career writing for Chris Evans’ Power Up show on BSB’s Music channel in 1990, but by 2000 he was pursuing his comic acting. He appeared in the first series of Fun At The Funeral Parlour for BBC Choice and was in the first Lenny Henry In Pieces sketch show, which won the prestigious Golden Rose of Montreux Award.
He then appeared regularly on The Johnny Vaughan Tonight show on both BBC Choice and BBC 1, and took his first show up to Edinburgh for three years.
He was a featured support in the BBC’s BAFTA award winning Little Britain and the Gold Arrow Award Winning Orange Cinema campaign working alongside Carrie Fisher, Roy Schneider and Spike Lee.
He has also landed roles in BBC1’s Born and Bred, My Dad’s the Prime Minister and the second series of Absolute Power with Stephen Fry, and has contributed to many Radio 4 and Radio 2 shows.
Furst will be coordinating proceedings when the winners of Britain’s Best Retailer Awards are announced at the black tie event at the Manchester Hilton Deansgate on November 11.
