With his quick witted and irreverent style, ten-time Emmy Award-winning TV host Elliott Bambrough has fast established himself as one of the most versatile on-camera and voiceover talents in Chicago.
Hailing from the vibrant melting pot of North London, Elliott spent his most formative years studying theater, improv, and music, performing all over the UK. After venturing in front of the camera 17 years ago, as a contracted host on live national UK television, Elliott had also worked on various BBC Radio stations and with Traffic Radio London, prior to relocating permanently to the US in 2007.
Following Elliott’s move over the pond, he has continued to expand his repertoire, by hosting countless projects including lifestyle, food, travel, music, movie review, satirical and game shows. In addition, he has appeared in and voiced numerous commercials, international projects, and various animated series.
A diehard foodie, experienced world traveler, obsessive sport fan, coupled with his music background; means Elliott’s passion and expertise has seen him shine in a wide array of projects.
Some highlights include eight years hosting, and ten Emmy Awards for Chicago’s Best on WGN-TV, a daily TV show at Summerfest for The Cool TV, a travel series with Vice, as well as a national tour with VH1 Save the Music Foundation. In addition to projects with Travel Channel, ESPN+/Chicago Fire FC, Goose Island Beer Co., Chrysler, Kmart, and Shell Oil, Elliott boasts a vast list of celebrities, artists, athletes and pop-culture icons he’s interviewed.
At home on live TV, as he is in front of a green screen – or anything else you can throw at him – Elliott always brings the charm, plenty of funny, and a dash of gravitas.
In 2014, 2015, 2016, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021 Elliott was awarded the Emmy for Outstanding Achievement for On-Camera Talent – Program Host/Moderator for his work on Chicago’s Best, in addition to three Emmys for the program itself.
