TV Presenter and Performer
Nigel Clarke is a TV presenter and performer, best known for his work on ‘The Baby Club’ and is founder of Dadvengers.
Born and raised in London to West Indian Parents, Nigel is a rare and talented find. Since January 2019, he has been at the helm of the hugely successful ‘The Baby Club’ on CBeebies, which was described by The Guardian, as “a TV godsend for frazzled new parents”. Alongside Giovanna Fletcher, he leads babies and their parents in charming songs, games and calming storytime. He has also hosted The Baby Club’s spin-off series, ‘The Toddler Club’ and the BBC Sounds podcast, ‘Baby Bear & Me’.
Following on from the success of ‘The Baby Club’, Nigel discovered the lack of information and support for dads and started the Dadvengers initiative. ‘The Dadvengers Podcast’ launched in 2020 and sees celebrity guests share their own intimate experiences; the highs, the lows, their triumphs and their failures. Nigel hopes that by telling their stories it will inspire his listeners to share their own experiences. That way, they can all learn from each other and navigate the parenting journey together.
A well experienced hand, Nigel has also presented a wide variety of programmes including the ‘CBeebies Proms’, ‘Dance Factory’, ‘Clutter Nutters’, ‘Sportsround’ and ‘Totally Rubbish’ for the BBC. ‘Toonattik’ for GMTV, ‘Unlimited’ for Facebook, ‘Skillicious’ for ITV, ‘My Camp Rock’ for Disney, and ‘Rat Race Urban Adventure’ for Channel 4. In addition, he hosts red carpet and behind the scenes coverage for BAFTA and Disney.
Nigel is also incredibly passionate about dance, music and sport. He also performs in the hugely successful percussion show STOMP, both in the West End and internationally. This has led him to perform at events such as the Olympics Closing Ceremony 2012, Live at the Palladium, The Royal Variety Performance and The World Music Awards.
