‘Funny, clever and as brilliantly observed as you’ll find’ – The Scotsman
‘His daftness is little short of surreal genius’ – The Stage
A hilarious, thought-provoking Geordie raconteur with a staggering turn of phrase, his slew of credits include ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’, ‘The Stand-Up Show’, ‘The Comedy Store’, ‘The 11 O’ Clock Show’, ‘Does Doug Know’ and the Radio 4 sketch show ‘The Show What You Wrote’. Famed and respected by his peers for his uncompromising and unusual approach and distinctly original routines, he now boasts a large cult following round the country and particularly on his native Tyneside where he sells out theatres with his one man ninety minute shows. Hard edged routines, quick-fire pastiche pieces, moronic jokes and sardonic songs, his unique style is a joy to behold.
‘Steve Williams has proven his lauders correct and come of age as one of Britain’s best stand-up performers…effortless audience interaction, inventive and adaptable use of his material and some of the best natural improvisation you will see at the Fringe this year…an hour filled with a constant torrent of laughter’ – Fest
Chortle Award nominee and BBC New Comedy Award Finalist, Steve Williams is one of the most exciting and electrifying live performers on the circuit. Steve never fails to surprise and engage audiences with his hybrid of bizarre stories, larger than life physicality, spontaneous improvisation and his off-the-wall take on everyday life. His three solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe have garnered considerable critical success. Steve premiered his first solo stand-up show Steve Williams: Excitable at the Edinburgh fringe in 2006, he returned in 2007 with Steve Williams: Binge Thinking, which was followed by a national tour of Edinburgh and Beyond. This year Steve toured with his new stand-up show Stand Up Story Man.
Steve’s TV credits include appearances Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Edinburgh and Beyond and The Comedy Store for Paramount and he recently appeared on Dave Gorman’s Absolute Radio Show (Absolute Radio) and 7 Day Sunday (Radio 5Live). Steve is also a core writer on Russell Howard’s Good News on BBC3.
