Norman Cook, also known as Fatboy Slim, is a musician, DJ and producer. His career took off as the bassist in his friend Paul Heaton’s band, The Housemartins. Hits included Happy Hour and Caravan of Love. After their split, he moved to Brighton, pursuing a love of dance music. Norman’s first single, released in the summer of 1989, with MC Wildski, was Won’t Talk About It / Blame it on the Bassline. Beats International swiftly followed and with this group they had the number one single Dub Be Good to Me. With Freak Power, came the hit Turn On, Tune In, Cop Out. The mid nineties saw him involved, partly as a regular DJ, with The Big Beat Boutique, a highly popular club night, based on the big beat genre. As Fatboy Slim, he became one of the world’s biggest dance music acts, largely due to the 1998 album, You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby. Its tracks included Right Here, Right Now, Praise You and The Rockafeller Skank. Norman’s music videos were innovative and award-winning. His later work included collaborations with David Byrne, Rizzle Kicks, Macy Gray and Iggy Pop. As well as making music, he continues to DJ at shows, festivals and club worldwide.


Jon Plowman has been a major figure in British television comedy for over thirty years. He was an executive producer on a wealth of popular and acclaimed BBC sitcoms and sketch shows. In 1994, he became their Head of Comedy Entertainment. Jon played a key part in the careers of figures such as Stephen Fry, Ricky Gervais, Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders and many others. Among the most successful shows that he commissioned and / or produced were The Office and French and Saunders, Absolutely Fabulous, The Thick of It, The Vicar of Dibley, Extras, W1A, Inside No. 9 and The League of Gentlemen. In 2007, he received the Royal Television Society’s Outstanding Contribution Award and has been BAFTA-nominated ten times. 2018 saw the publication of Jon’s highly insightful and entertaining autobiography, How to Produce Comedy Bronze. We expect him to be an amusing and animated guest.
