Chortle Award nominee and BBC New Comedy Award Finalist, Steve Williams is one of the most exciting and electrifying live performers on the comedy 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 TV credits include appearances on Russell Howard’s Good News, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Edinburgh and Beyond and The Comedy Store for Paramount. On radio he has recently appeared on Dave Gorman’s Absolute Radio Show (Absolute Radio), 7 Day Sunday (Radio 5Live) and stood in for Frank Skinner on Frank Skinner’s Absolute Radio Show (Absolute Radio).
Meanwhile, Steve’s 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. In 2008 he performed the critically acclaimed Steve Williams: Ultimate Warrior and in 2010 Steve toured with his new stand-up show Stand Up Story Man.
Steve is currently a core writer for Russell Howard’s Good News on BBC3.
“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.”
