Jake Yapp is a British comedian who first came to prominence in the mid-1990s on Martin Kelner's radio shows on BBC North and Jazz FM playing the character Dame Dora Dale. This led to the award-winning BBC 7 show Pleased to Meet You  in 2006. Two new episodes were transmitted by BBC Radio 4 Extra over Christmas 2011.
A semi-finalist in the 2000 Daily Telegraph Open Mic Award, Yapp performed at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2008 (Bum Notes) and 2009 (Hallo, Music Lovers & Free at Four). He had a regular slot on BBC 6 Music's Shaun Keaveny breakfast show until July 2011. Yapp also created and performed The Chesney Bentings Mysteries for BBC Radio 2's Ken Bruce show as part of 2011's Comic Relief.
In 2016 he wrote and presented a series of short, comic histories of scientific knowledge on BBC Radio 4 entitled 'Everything We've Ever Known About...'
Yapp's newest live show 'One in a Millon', from Edinburgh Festival 2016, is coming to the Soho Theatre in London, UK in June 2017.
