Stephen made a big impact with his first sketch and stand-up TV show. He’s since published his life story: I Used To Say My Mother Was Shirley Bassey. Teasing his audience, Stephen delivers ‘unashamed feelgood entertainment,’ say the Standard.


Biography

Instantly likeable, Stephen K Amos has built a reputation as a peerless compere, a popular stand-up and an acclaimed comic writer. He’s also been this star of his own BBC2 sketch and stand-up show.

Stephen talks to audiences as if they’ve known each other for years. His ability to hold their attention and take them on a journey through his life, his passions and his views of the world has led to sell-out tours and a raft of TV and radio appearances.

Stephen has starred in the Radio 4 sketch show The Odd Half Hour, the panel show The Tyranny of Choices, as well as in two series of his own show Life: An Idiot’s Guide and the autobiographical standup/sitcom show What Does the K Stand For? TV credits include Have I Got News For You, Time Gentleman Please, Live at the Apollo and the Royal Variety Performance. He is also a regular panellist on The Wright Stuff.

Appearances on various TV ‘list’ programmes inspired his Edinburgh show, The 100 Best Things Ever, and he currently tours the UK extensively every year. He has won the Time Out award for Best Stand-Up, presented a documentary on Jamaican music and appeared in a stage production of One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest.
