Kirsten OBrien


Television presenter and stand-up comic, Kirsten O' Brien is known for presenting SMart, and presented Smile and Totally Doctor Who alongside Barney Harwood on CBBC. In 1996 she joined the team presenting the continuity links during the BBC's children's programming CBBC. She stayed there for three-and-a-half years during which time she became best known for her partnership with arrogant puppet Otis the Aardvark. Both O'Brien and Otis also co-presented with other people (and often solo). The 1997 Saturday morning spin-off Saturday Aardvark was entirely built around them. Puppeteer Dave Chapman would often reduce O'Brien to tears of helpless laughter with his ad-libs.
