Dominic Frisby is an entertaining and informed financial commentator. Quick-witted, warm and well-spoken, he is also an extremely charming host.
Dominic’s recent TV and film credits include:
- The Money Pit, with Jason Manford, in which Dominic was the resident financial expert.
- Co-writing and narrating Four Horsemen, the award-winning documentary about the Global Financial Crisis. (Watched by over 7m people on YouTube, which is unprecedented for an economics documentary)
- He has just finished writing and presenting, Sense of Beauty, 1 6-part series about beauty, which is now in pre-production.
- Daily Politics (BBC Two) and Moral Maze (BBC Radio 4).
He writes a weekly investment column for Moneyweek, and regularly contributes to the Guardian, the Independent and Aeon.
His 2014 book, Bitcoin: the Future of Money? (‘Read it and glimpse into the future,’ said Sir Richard Branson) was the first book on bitcoin by a recognized publisher. His other book is Life After the State (‘Something extraordinary … a page-turner on the economy’, James Harding).
Following his 2016 sell-out show, Let’s Talk About Tax, Dominic is currently working on a book about tax for Penguin Random House. In 2018 he returns to Edinburgh with a new financial gameshow/quiz and is currently preparing for that.
He has hosted (and continues to host) numerous podcasts, including: Stuff That Interests Me, the Virgin Podcast, Commodity Watch Radio and Penguin Random House’s Live Life Better.
Previous jobs in Dominic’s varied life include: sports commentator, florist, rapper and boxing ring announcer. He worked for many years as a stand-up and still comperes gigs once a week to “keep the muscle”. Day-to-day he can be found trotting about the sound studios of London, busying away at voiceovers.
As a hobby, he enjoys making short videos for YouTube. One of them, Debt Bomb, became a viral hit.
