Bob Mortimer is to receive an honourary degree from Teesside University later this month for his achievements in comedy.

Mortimer, who is currently filming series two of House of Fools with Vic Reeves, will be joined by eight other distinguished figures who will pick up honorary degrees at the ceremonies which take place from 24 November to 2 December.

Professor Graham Henderson CBE DL, Vice-Chancellor of Teesside University, said: “It really is going to be a huge privilege to award honorary degrees to such a diverse and talented group of people. I know our students will enjoy sharing their success with such influential individuals, and role models, and I am sure that they will all prove to be great ambassadors for our University and its community.”

Series two of House of Fools is due to air later this year.
