Stephen K Amos has charmed and entertained audiences all over the world with his natural, assured delivery and his honest, original material.
A gifted actor, Amos has impressed critics with his performances on stage and screen and has proved he is one of the most unique comedy voices of his generation but demonstrated a penchant for drama roles. Comfortable as a performer, presenter, actor and guest there is no doubt that Amos will retain his position as one of the nation's favourite comedians for a long time to come.
Stephen is about to start the UK leg of his tour with his latest show Before and Laughter which has been postponed due to the pandemic. His previous show Everyman toured the UK and then went on to Australia in 2020. In 2018 Stephen toured Bouquets & Brickbats around the UK, Europe, South East Asia and Australia. Stephen was also asked back on to QI featuring in the first episode of series P. He also took part in a new BBC Two series Pilgrimage The Road To Rome.
Stephen had another busy year in 2017. He presented the critically acclaimed documentary Prejudice and Pride on BBC Four, with Susan Calman. He took two shows to the Edinburgh Fringe; a work in progress of his new tour as well as bringing back the fan favourite Stephen K Amos Chat Show to the Gilded Balloon. He wowed the crowds at the Glastonbury Festival, recorded an episode of QI and the Museum of Curiosity. His tour Bread and Circuses began in November and continued in Australia early 2018.
Stephen's first book - I Used To Say My Mother Was Shirley Bassey - is a memoir of a lifetime of fitting in, standing out, and (almost) always laughing. It is available to buy now from book shops or online.
In 2015, Stephen concluded his National UK tour with a two week sell-out run at Soho Theatre before taking his show - Welcome To My World - across Australia and New Zealand. Having gone so well, Stephen announced his first European tour of the show before going straight into his new show, The Laughter Master (2015-16).
The Laughter Master has since toured the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Europe.
In 2014, Series Three of Life: An Idiots Guide was commissioned. Stephen also took What Does The K Stand For? to Australia and New Zealand.
2013 saw Stephen tour the UK, Australia and New Zealand with his hit show, The Spokesman. Continuing Stephen's tradition of generating new and unique shows, he performed a Work In Progress at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, alongside his live talk show.
In 2012, following his success of past years, Stephen once again travelled to Australia, this time to perform his new show, Laughter Is My Agenda, at all of the major festivals as part of an Australian tour. He then returned to the world renowned Edinburgh Festival Fringe with a new Work In Progress which was a total sell out; before doing a full UK Autumn tour. Alongside this, Stephen also recorded the second series of his hit radio series Life: An Idiots Guide for BBC Radio 4.
One of the most likable figures in British comedy... this format suits him down to the ground
We roared at ad-libbing that was first rate throughout... Amos at his best. You’ll leave the show smiling
Amos has the sort of commanding presence and confidence that could only have come from years of working the circuit
