Joe Wilkinson was a guest and contestant on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown. He is a stand-up comedian, seen on panel shows, such as 8 out of 10 Cats.

On 24 August 2012, he became the show's first male arithmetician, when he filled in for Rachel Riley during the second numbers game of 8 Out of 10 Cats Mashup: The Rematch and for 29 episodes until 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 6, Episode 5 (excluding two episodes in between as he was "away on holiday"), he has appeared as Riley's "assistant" for the second half of every show. This was despite the host Jimmy Carr saying that he no longer works for the show since the 2014 Christmas Special some five episodes before his final appearance on the job. Subsequently, he has made occasional appearances in episodes where he was not the Dictionary Corner Guest.

In that same show, he also appeared as a contestant and was then the guest captain on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 7, Episode 9 and Episode 14 in 2015. He subsequently reappeared as the guest captain in various episodes since 2016. Perhaps his most famous moment came in 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 16, Episode 2 when he recited a poem that made everyone present laugh out of control and subsequently went viral on Youtube.

He has since joined Apterous, but was last seen on Valentine's Day 2018.
