Louis Balfour
Louis Balfour

Presenter of Jazz Club, Louis Balfour is a man whose mission is to bring 'you all that's best in the world of jazz'. Every obscure and bizarrely named jazz combo who join him in the studio will be greeted with the Louis' particular brand of cool reverence.

Louis Balfour - niceThe music is uniformly terrible, and Louis is always enraptured. His highest accolade is an aside to the camera - 'Nice!' or 'Grrrrreat'.

John Thompson calls Louis a cross between Whispering Bob Harris and Roger Moore. He's one of the most memorable of the Fast Show characters, with one of the best haircuts. Nice.
