Billy Pearce is without doubt one of Britain’s most talented comedy entertainers. Born in Yorkshire, he first came to national prominence when he appeared on top TV talent show ‘New Faces’, winning his heat and qualifying for the final. His impact was extraordinary and he was immediately in demand for TV and stage appearances, culminating with his first series for BBC television, ‘You Gotta Be Joking’.
Since then Billy has made numerous TV appearances as a comedian and as guest on shows such including ‘Des O’Connor Tonight (LWT)’; ‘Through the Keyhole’, ‘National Lottery Live’, and ‘Can‘t Cook Won’t Cook’ amongst many others.
In 1993, he was honoured to be chosen to host The Children’s Royal Variety Performance screened by the BBC. His success in this prestigious show can be judged by the fact that he was invited to appear on the same show a year later, which he then followed with a laughter-filled appearance on the Royal Variety Performance. In total, Billy has performed in five Children’s Royal Variety Shows and three Royal Variety Shows.
As well as his undoubted comedy skills, Billy is also a successful actor, having made appearances in ‘Heartbeat,’ and ‘The Street.’ His theatre credits include the Narrator in ‘The Rocky Horror Show’ and Roddie in ‘Boogie Nights.’
