Craig Hill is a Scottish comedian, TV presenter and actor known for his cheeky, irreverent and camp act.
Hill's first public success came at age ten when he won a local talent contest in his native East Kilbride, impersonating Cleo Laine. In 1991, he moved to Edinburgh in order to study Drama at Queen Margaret College, graduating in 1994. Hill's comedy characters as well as his ability to improvise and write material led him into stand-up. He was still an actor, working in Theatre in Education and pantomimes when a friend secretly booked him in for an ‘open spot’ in 1998.
In 1997 and 1998, Hill performed a lead role (Jeremy Weller) in the Grassmarket Project’s theatre production "Mad" at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Since 2002, Craig has extensively toured with his solo comedy shows throughout Scotland, the UK and internationally to Australia, Spain, Germany, Holland, Ireland, New York.
