Markus’s quick quips and dark humour have delighted audiences for the last 20 years and recently impressed Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and Bruno Tonioli on the latest series of Britain’s Got Talent.

Markus’ skill lies in taking a unique experience about a topic that might often be sniggered over, and making you laugh whilst also raising a little awareness. (Go him!).

Markus said today, “Britain’s Got Talent was a great experience – thanks to all for their support – I’m excited to get out on the road on tour to bring joy to the masses and also to raise a little stroke awareness. Not for your pity, more for your awe & admiration (& cash!*)”

June 5th 2021, he had a stroke. It was his second. He found himself in hospital, mid lockdown, with no visitors allowed. He has permanently lost half his eyesight. One night he went to the toilet and sat down on another naked blind man, already there. Markus was too blind to see him. The man was too blind to stop him! So it’s not ALL doom! 

He’d like to tell you about it. Not to create feelings of pity toward him, more a sense of awe & fawning admiration…

Markus Birdman has thundered back into comedy fresh from a recent Edinburgh Fringe run and he has been nominated for a 2023 Chortle Award. He has also recently written for Jayde Adams and supported Jason Manford at the Palladium.
