STEPHEN K AMOS Everyman UK TOUR 2019-20

-

- Advertisment -

“Amos has the sort of commanding presence and confidence that could only have come from years of working the circuit” – ARTS HUB ****

“Comedy at its purest and richest form” – THE ADVERTISER (ADELAIDE) *****

“Much-loved King of Stand-up” – NORTH WEST END ****

Fresh from the Edinburgh Fringe (well, sort of) and raring to go with a new show, the delightful and lovable Stephen K Amos is back on the road with EVERYMAN this November.

It’s easy to feel angry when mad talking heads and evil officials are looking for any slight difference of opinion to plough open and exploit. We need an everyman to bring people together, using the most powerful tool we have: comedy. In short, we need Stephen K Amos.

He’s on a mission to bring about world peace. Or to at least bring about an evening of peace, one venue at a time. In an age when arguments are started over everything from politics to bendy straws, Stephen is rising above the anger to remind us of what we have in common. Bringing achingly funny anecdotes, hilarious takes on the everyday and his infectious charm, Stephen K Amos will warm your cold, stiffened hearts. Join together with your fellow man and experience the universal language of laughter!

As seen on Pointless Celebrities, QI, The People’s History of LGBT (BBC), UKTV’s Celebrity Storage Hunters and Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled, and BBC1’s Live At The Apollo and Have I Got News For You, as well as What Does The K Stand For? on BBC Radio 4. The Stephen K Amos Talk Show, in which Stephen invites popular stand-ups to chinwag about this, that and the other each year at the Edinburgh Festival, was recorded in 2018 (third series) and is now available on Amazon’s Audible.

Besides all this, Stephen has also penned an autobiography – I Used to Say My Mother Was Shirley Bassey – which he is soon to record for an audiobook version. Watch this space.

Stephen also took part in the three-part series Pilgrimage: The Road to Rome, alongside Katy Brand and Les Dennis. The BBC Two series, which aired in April and May, saw celebrities give up their creature comforts to follow the Via Francigena trail in France and Italy – to finish up at the Vatican. About the programme Stephen says:

“I do jokes, I like to have a laugh and see the good in people. Comedy has taken me around the world. I don’t walk, I’m not religious. So going on Pilgrimage was a huge personal shift for me. Never in my mind’s eye did I think I’d have a private half-hour audience with the Pope. Not to be blessed by the pontiff, but able to ask unedited questions on behalf of millions. His response genuinely moved me. Whatever your beliefs are, everyone deserves dignity. If you fail to respect that, then you don’t have a human heart.”
