John Gordillo

John Gordillo is a Perrier Award-nominated English director and Comedian who has directed shows by the Comedian Eddie Izzard and was the host and co-creator of The RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance), a daily late-night topical comedy talk show, which played heavily with the conventions of the genre The show ran for 60 episodes until BBC Choice was rebranded as BBC Three.

In 2003 Gordillo made the final shortlist of two comics being considered by the BBC as a full-time replacement for Angus Deayton as host of Have I Got News For You, although Gordillo has never guest-hosted the show. Gordillo was screentested but the BBC offered the job to the other contender Alexander Armstrong before eventually deciding to employ neither comic and instead continue with the guest presenter format.

Gordillo returned to stand up in 2006, taking three critically successful solo shows to the Edinburgh festival in 07, 08 and 09. He has written and directed extensively for TV and live comedy, including a long partnership with US comedian Reginald D Hunter with whom, according to Gordillo’s website, he is writing and producing an independent film.
