Patrick Albert Crispin Marber (born 19 September 1964) is an English comedian, playwright, director, puppeteer, actor and screenwriter.
Marber was born in London, England, the son of Brian Marber, a leading and highly regarded technical analyst, and was raised in Wimbledon. He was educated at Rokeby School, St Paul's School, Cranleigh School and Wadham College, Oxford.
After working for a few years as a stand-up comedian, Marber was a writer and cast member on the radio shows On the Hour and Knowing Me, Knowing You, and their television spinoffs The Day Today and Knowing Me, Knowing You... with Alan Partridge. Amongst other roles, Marber portrayed the hapless reporter Peter O'Hanraha-hanrahan in both On the Hour and The Day Today, and was involved in a dispute with the comedians Stewart Lee and Richard Herring, who had written for On the Hour, about who had invented the character. Lee and Herring's TV show Fist of Fun would later make several references to their ongoing feud with Marber, calling him a "Cornish playwright" and "Cornish curmudgeon". In Stewart Lee's 2010 book, How I Escaped My Certain Fate, Marber is referred to as a "new Shakespeare"...
