Edinburgh Fringe 2018: Comedy Special
Every year I have wanted to go to the Edinburgh Fringe to see Stephen, who i used to live with when he first started out in comedy. So this is the first year I am going to go! I can’t believe this will be my first ever Fringe but I am very excited about seeing Stephen. If you haven’t seen any of his shows, you really must. Stephen is cheeky, witty & quite naughty…all with a big smile and a laugh.
Stephen Bailey Our Kid
Everyone’s favourite ‘guilty pleasure’ (Daily Record), stand-up comedy star, Stephen Bailey returns to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2018 with his brand new show ‘Our Kid’ – a story full of Northern warmth, some working-class guilt and a bit of blue.
“A rising star to watch out for” **** Benjy Potter, The Sun
2018 has been an exciting year for Stephen!
The past six months have seen him embark on his first critically acclaimed UK tour, perform three nights at the prestigious Soho Theatre in London plus support Katherine Ryan on her recent sold-out UK tour. His friendly brand of gossipy humour has made him one of the UK’s most exciting up-and-coming acts in comedy at the moment.
Stephen is now the resident agony uncle on ITV1s ‘Zoe Ball on Sunday’. Appearances on Five’s ‘Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit on the Side’ and Comedy Central’s ‘Live at The Comedy Store’ add to his extensive back catalogue of TV and radio work.
His other notable TV appearances include regular appearances on ITV2’s ‘Safeword’, ‘CelebAbility’ and ITV’s Weekend with Aled Jones. Stephen has also starred on ITV2’s ‘The Great Xmas Rant’, ITVBe’s ‘Kate’s Wardrobe Secrets’, W’s ‘Celebrity Advice Bureau’ & Channel 5’s ‘It’s Not Me, It’s You’.
Celebs on a Farm, C5
Recently it was announced Stephen is going to host Channel 5’s new celeb series ‘Celebs on a Farm’. Stephen will follow eight celebs around the farm. Bobby Norris, Megan McKenna, Ashley McKenzie, Lorraine Chase, Sandi Bogle, Louie Spence, Gleb Savchenko, and Charlotte Dawson. I have loved watching Stephen as Zoe Ball’s resident agony uncle, but we can’t wait until he hosts this!
One of Attitude Magazine’s Top 100 Bachelors of the Year in 2017
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 in 2017.
As a vocal supporter of LGBT rights, Stephen regularly contributes articles to Attitude magazine, Huff Post UK and Gay Star News, which made him the ideal choice to host the Stonewall 25th Anniversary Party last year.
