Making Fish Laugh with Tim Key

Arguably a descendant of Dave Gorman's docu-comedy approach Horne's voice was nevertheless distinctive, polite, charming, informative and deftly funny. Horne gigs and tours regularly including 45-date national tour with Robert Llewellyn. Meanwhile he has written and performed with Craig Charles on ITV, collaborated with Steve Coogan's Baby Cow Productions for BBC3 and collaborated with Tim Key and Mark Watson for BBC 4's We Need Answers.
