Naismith in 2014
|Born||Jonathan W D Naismith
Naismith was a member of Footlights at the University of Cambridge and Junior Treasurer from 1987-1988. He co-wrote and starred in the 1988 revue Sheep Go Bare alongside Mel Giedroyc, Simon Munnery, Tom Hollander, Dan Gooch and Sarah Dudman.
Naismith has been producer of the long-running radio panel show I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue since 1991. The episodes are recorded before a live theatre audience, with two programmes being recorded at each performance and Naismith traditionally performs the duties of "warmup artist". This usually involves testing sound recording levels by means of a "patronising audience participation exercise" and a joke. Naismith also provides the voiceovers for the show - whenever the host talks about something appearing on the laser display board, he is "the mystery voice for listeners at home".
He married Belinda Campbell in Oxfordshire in June 2002.
