About

The Horne Section bring together stand-up and live music in a free-wheeling and spontaneous combination.

The group is led by Alex Horne, the creator and host of the hit Bafta winning TV Series Taskmaster. Their live show Horne Section’s Questions Sessions pits some of the finest contemporary comedians against each other to complete the most unlikely tasks, and has enjoyed sell-out runs in Edinburgh and at the Soho Theatre.

The Horne Section have starred in Horne Section’s Christmas, a “deliciously blasphemous delight” (Chortle) of a short film that aired on Sky Arts on Christmas Day, and had their own TV Special at the London Palladium. They are the only band that has ever hosted 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown and Never Mind the Buzcocks. They have also appeared on The John Bishop Show, Save Our Summer and The Last Leg, as well as presenting three series of their very own show for BBC Radio 4.
