About Steve...

Steve has rapidly established himself throughout the UK as a top choice for all of the
major comedy venues & promoters, including the Comedy Store, CSE, Glee Club, and Jongleurs.

His whirlwind performances and thrilling routines have constantly proven a hit with even the
quietest crowds... The key to his act being his energy and silliness.

He has performed his comedy throughout the world: to an audience as diverse as bikers in a field, to royalty in a theatre, and never ceases to go down a storm.

Aside from the comedy work, as a musician - Steve writes electronic music under the alias “Get Chipped” which you will find in the audio section of this site and on Soundcloud.

Steve also writes for the angling website (which probably isn’t that interesting if you’re not into fishing, and even if you are - it probably still isn’t that impressive - but it is true, and that’s a good start)
