  • B.A. in Classics, Cambridge University

After starring in two highly successful comedy shows at the Edinburg Festival, Making Fish Laugh and Every Body Talks, Alex Horne, a Classics graduate hailed by The Independent as "a quick witted and genial comedian," toured the UK in 2005 with his show, When in Rome, to rave reviews.

Nominated as 'Perrier Award' Newcomer in 2003 and honored with the 'Chortle Comedy Award' for Breakthrough Act in 2004, Horne studied Classics at Cambridge University. Asked about the When in Rome show, he commented, "I'm on a mission to keep Latin alive and get some use from a degree which everyone told me would be useless."
