When Jim Moir, or better known as his stagename, Vic Reeves, was first presented to the TV public he called himself Britain’s Best Light Entertainer. He could sing, dance, be funny, act and even draw! That was at the start of 1990 with the launch of Vic Reeves: Big Night Out and since then he has grown into one of the most treasured entertainers of the last 25 years.

Perhaps best known for his double act alongside comedy writer and performer Bob Mortimer, the two created cult panel show Shooting Stars in the mid-90s. Running for an impressive eight series, the show allowed for riotous onscreen antics featuring different celebrity guests each week. The show introduced comedy scorekeepers George Doors (Matt Lucas), Angelos Epithemiou (Daniel Renton Skinner) and not to mention the Dove from Above.

Recent TV credits include Netflix series, The Big Flower Fight, Shakespear and Hathaway and appearances on Grayson’s Art Club, Celebrity Gogglebox, Portrait Artist of the Year and Crystal Maze.  Over the last decade Jim has also writen and starring alongside Mortimer in the BBC2 sitcom House of Fools, which aired for two series; played Geoffrey in the BBC rendition Inspector George Gently and competed in The Great British Bake Off for Comic Relief, narrowly missing out to fellow comedy legend Victoria Wood.

Other notable credits include hosting two successful series of BBC1s Brainiac, presenting Racing Legends, narrating on Dave’s comedy podcast Crackanory and presenting Britain’s Secret Treasures for ITV. Vic starred alongside Victoria Wood in BBC 2’s feature-length film Eric and Ernie, playing Eric Morecambe’s father. The film, about the early life of comic duo Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise, was broadcast on New Year’s Day 2011 and received rave reviews.

‘Vic’ and Bob are award winners in their own right, having scooped Writers Guild of Great Britain Award in 2012 and the Loaded LAFTAS Award in 2011 for their contribution to British comedy over the last 30 years.

In November 2015 the duo marked their outstanding impact on our comedy history with a three month UK Tour, ending in February 2016.

Corporate work includes hosting the BAFTA Video Game Awards to great acclaim, hosting the Specsavers Celebrity Spectacle Wearer of the Year Awards and featuring on the panel of the live Sky Movies Debate: Which is The Best Batman Movie? Other corporate clients include Renault, Fanta, Lynx, First Direct, Essilor Eyewear, InTu Shopping Centres partnered with the RSPB, Sky B2B and Cuprinol Sheds.
