One of the UK’s rising comedy stars, Stephen Bailey is hitting the road in 2018 on his highly anticipated solo UK tour, ‘Can’t Think Straight’, and will be bringing his critically acclaimed scandalous chatter and biting wit to the MET Studio in February.
In this brand new show, Stephen tackles everything from celebrity culture and dating to politics and working-class family life. Stephen’s friendly, welcoming brand of affectionate gossipy Northern humour has made him one of the most popular acts on the UK comedy circuit today, with his undeniable talent leading to support slots on Katherine Ryan and Jenny Eclair’s recent sold-out tours. In 2015 he was nominated for Best Show at the Amused Moose Comedy Awards.
As well as his live stand up, Stephen is also high in demand for his TV and radio work with regular appearances on ITV’s Weekend with Aled Jones and Channel 5’s Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit on the Side. He has also appeared on ITV2’s Safeword and CelebAbility, ITVBe’s Kate’s Wardrobe Secrets, W’s Celebrity Advice Bureau & Channel 5’s It’s Not Me, It’s You.
Stephen has also guest-hosted the Sunday Takeover on Virgin Radio, the Breakfast show on GAYDIO, been featured on The Arts Show with Jonathan Ross on BBC Radio 2 and was named one of Attitude Magazine’s Top 100 Bachelors of the Year.
As a vocal supporter of LGBT rights, Stephen regularly contributes articles to Attitude magazine and the Huffington Post which made him the ideal choice to host the Stonewall 25th Anniversary Party.
**Stephen is currently supporting Katherine Ryan on her ‘Glitter Room’ UK tour.
Stephen Bailey will be performing in the MET Studio at Stafford Gatehouse Theatre on Saturday 9th February 2018 at 8pm. Tickets are priced at £13 and are available from the Box Office on 01785 619080 or via www.staffordgatehousetheatre.co.uk
