Richard Blackwood, TV presenter and comedian, is well known as the presenter of several TV shows.
Richard claims that he always wanted to be a performer, but he did the sensible thing and took a business degree course. After he graduated he did a one off gig at The Spot in Covent Garden and from there his popularity grew. He also did guest spots on BBC2’s late night black entertainment programme The A-Force as well as sketches on The Real McCoy and Five Night Stand.
His hard work paid off and he was picked up by MTV, where for four years he was the host of MTV Select. Viewers phoned in with video requests and Richard Blackwood kept them entertained at the same time. He also hosts Singled Out with Sara Cawood, which was originally made for MTV and is now screened on Channel 5.
