Jonathan Ross speaks on the following topics:
Jonathan Ross is simply one of the most talented and respected television and radio presenters around. He has won numerous prestigious awards. In 2003, for example, Jonathan won a British Comedy Award for his TV show Friday Night with Jonathan Ross and no less than two Gold and one Silver Sony Award for his Saturday morning BBC Radio 2 show, The Jonathan Ross Show. He is known and loved for his natural wit, enthusiasm for music and film, inimitable interview style and, of course, his sartorial splendour.Jonathan began his career as a researcher on the Channel 4 chat show Loose Talk. Various other documentaries and shows followed before he began working on Soul Train. It was whilst working on the show that he met researcher Alan Marke and the pair came up with the idea of The Last Resort and their own production company. In 1987 Channel X was born. Finding themselves short of a satisfactory host Jonathan stepped in, literally at ‘the last resort’, and made his television presenting debut in January 1987. The show was a hit and broke the mould of the traditional TV chat show in this country. His two-week stint hosting Wogan confirmed his skill and popularity as a chat show host. No wonder Channel 4 commissioned four series of Jonathan’s chat show, Tonight with Jonathan Ross. Jonathan’s radio career began in 1987 when he filled in for Janice Long on Radio 1 for two weeks. The following year, he hosted a flagship show on Richard Branson’s first radio station (the fore-runner to Virgin Radio). Jonathan was also a regular contributor on Radio 4’s Loose Ends from 1987 to 1989. In 1998 he teamed up with Chris Evans to host a flagship show for the new-look Virgin Radio, The Jonathan Ross Show. He now has over 3 million listeners for his BBC Radio 2 programme on Saturday mornings.Jonathan’s prolific television career from the late eighties onwards includes: The Incredibly Strange Film Show; One Hour with Jonathan Ross; For One Week Only; Tonight With Jonathan Ross; Saturday Zoo; Gag Tag (with Frank Skinner); Mondo Rosso; The Late Jonathan Ross ; In Search Of…; The Big Big Talent Show; It’s Only TV… But I Like It, and They Think it’s All Over. He now hosts his own highly successful chat show on BBC 1 and since 1999, Jonathan has stepped into Barry Norman’s shoes to present the BBC’s flagship film programme. In 1991 and subsequent years Jonathan has compered the British Comedy Awards with flair and great wit.
