A message from Eddie

Happy New Year and welcome to EddieNestor.com. The site is a snap shot of what I do and who I am. From the serious to the extremely silly I hope you will enjoy the ever-changing journey.

Eddie NestorI am a social commentator and entertainer. My career has seen me take on a multitude of roles including actor, stand up comedian, DJ and for the last decade, Broadcaster with my own Drive time show, week days from 5pm on BBC London 94.9 FM.

I love hearing stories and like to tell them too. You can follow and react to my take on the stories making the headlines, listen to interviews, giggle at pictures and watch sketches too. The site is constantly changing with new stuff being added all the time. So, as the Actress said to the Bishop, “Make sure you come back again soon”.

Eddie’s Charity Work

I have found myself doing more and more for charity. Maybe it’s as a result of getting older, having children or surviving serious illness. Anyways, it makes me feel great!

Is Jeremy Clarkson a racist? I don’t know but he has made a career of sailing close to the wind. Comments about a car being “ginger beer”. Calling [the former Prime Minister] Gordon Brown a “One eyed Scottish… Read more >
