Danny Wallace will present a Sunday morning show on Radio X, starting this weekend (Sunday 14 January). The writer and comedian is covering for regular host Russell Brand while he is working overseas.

Danny will return to Global, the media and entertainment group which is home to Radio X, having presented the XFM Breakfast Show in 2011 and 2012.

An award-winning author, he writes a weekly ShortList column and his best-selling books include Join Me, Awkward Situations For Men and Yes Man, which was made into a major Hollywood film starring Jim Carrey.

Danny says: “Radio runs through me like a shoplifter through a pound shop and I am so pleased to be joining the hugely talented team at Radio X. 

“As ever, my intention will be to slowly bring about tensions and rivalry while undermining senior staff, all set to great music.

“I can’t wait to get started and will keep Russell’s boat warm for him."


Matt Deverson, Managing Editor of Radio X, said: “Danny is part of the family and a much-loved presenter, so we’re extremely excited to have him back on air. Our listeners can look forward to a hugely entertaining show from the multi-talented Danny on Radio X.”
