Richard Osman TV Host
Richard Thomas Osman (born 28 November 1970) is an English television presenter, producer and director. He is creative director for the television production company, Endemol UK (previously Hat Trick), but is best known on-screen as the co-presenter of the quiz show Pointless. Osman was born in Billericay, Essex. He attended Trinity College, Cambridge together with Pointless co-presenter Alexander Armstrong. Since 2009, Osman has worked on the BBC Two quiz show Pointless (later BBC One) as assistant to host Alexander Armstrong, where he is punningly known as Armstrong's "pointless friend". Osman said in a blog that he got the job as co-presenter/assistant when he pitched the idea for the show to a panel of BBC daytime heads, taking the role of the assistant in the demonstration. Bosses were impressed and decided to offer Osman the job. Obscurely, as he revealed on his Twitter account on 9 April 2012, he appeared in the last-ever scene of Drop the Dead Donkey "carrying a table". Osman has also worked as executive producer on numerous other shows, including Deal or No Deal, Channel 4 comedy panel game 8 out of 10 Cats and satirical comedy 10 O'Clock Live.
