‘Guilty pleasure’ (Daily Record), Stephen Bailey is a comedian, television personality and writer, whose brand of gossipy humour has made him one of the most sought after acts on the UK comedy circuit today. He is ‘annoyingly sharp’ (The New Current) and audiences relate to his sassy style as he takes to the stage with ‘fantastic natural wit and charisma’ (Edinburgh Festivals).
Fresh from appearances on ITV2’s Safeword, Channel 5’s Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On the
Side & It’s Not Me, It’s You, and supporting Katherine Ryan on her UK tour, 2017 sees Stephen hit the road with his debut tour Stephen Bailey: Nation’s Sweetheart, and audiences can expect stories of dating
disasters, family lunacy and celebrity put-downs, which we can all relate to, as he explores ALL the tales that we are not posting on Facebook.
His approach is ‘warm and affectionate yet no less biting in its wit’ (The Gay UK), which made him the perfect choice to host Stonewall’s 25th Anniversary Party. A vocal supporter of LGBT rights, he regularly contributes articles to Attitude magazine and the Huffington Post and in 2015 his show was nominated for the Amused Moose Comedy Award (Best Show) at the Edinburgh Fringe.
As well as being a working-class, ginger, gay, northern comic, he is also a black belt in Tae Kwon-Do, has a degree in Languages AND loves a conspiracy theory (preferably involving a celebrity and a cucumber).
