Date of Birth : Jan 1st 1970
English comedian and actor. He achieved notoriety in 1995 portraying the character of Dennis Pennis, a shock interviewer on The Sunday Show. Recently he has been known as rude New Jersey lawyer Mike Strutter with his own show Strutter on MTV.
Kaye is a huge Arsenal fan, and writes a regular column for their official magazine, although, ironically, he used to work for their bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur. As evidenced by his Dennis Pennis look (“a punkoid Woody Allen”), he is fond of punk music, particularly The Clash, and The Sex Pistols. He has two sons, the younger of which bears the middle name of Strummer, as in The Clash’s Joe Strummer. His favourite film is Princess Mononoke as he stated when he introduced the film on Film4.
He has been critical of a perceived anti-Israeli bias in the British media. In a BBC News interview with Kaye on 2009-01-03 he said that he felt the need to react to an earlier interview with Alexei Sayle. Sayle had been protesting against Israel’s Operation Cast Lead. Kaye wrote an article calling for peace in the Guardian in January 2009.
