Dominic Holland will host the awards on 1 November

Dominic Holland is one of the country’s most-respected and established stand-up comedians.

With countless television appearances to his name, including Have I Got News for You, The News Quiz and The Royal Variety Performance, as well as his two BBC R4 series The Small World of Dominic Holland – a reference to his diminutive 5'6" height – his quick wit and accessible material has enabled him to tour the UK continually and establish him as a firm fixture on the corporate entertainment circuit.

The Sunday Times described him as ‘a master of observational comedy’ and The Daily Telegraph said: “Holland is a top-notch stand up who everyone should see.”

Holland started performing stand-up in 1991, making his debut at The Comedy Café in Rivington Street, London.

In 1993 he was briefly managed by Eddie Izzard and during his first year at the Edinburgh Fringe his one-man show won the Perrier Best Newcomer Award and later that same year he supported Eddie Izzard on a national tour.

When not performing, he is busy writing and has published novels, a non-fiction book and regularly publishes articles in numerous magazines and newspapers, including The Guardian and ABTA Travel Magazine.

He is also a regular panellist on the daytime debate show The Wright Stuff, and was co-writer of Hal, a 2017 sitcom commissioned by BBC Radio 4 which starred fellow comedian Hal Cruttenden, in which Holland also appeared. He also made regular appearances on the early seasons of BBC Radio 5 Live's comedy sports panel show, Fighting Talk.

He will announce the winners of this year’s Building Better Healthcare Awards at The Brewery in central London on 1 November.
