Steve Day (Headliner)
Steve Day is a truly unique comedian – warm, witty and engaging whilst dealing with the dilemmas of being a deaf man in a hearing world. Steve went on his first national tour back in 2006, and has since been performing across the world to critical acclaim.
A familiar voice on Radio 4, Steve has appeared many times on You and Yours, was a token man on Woman’s Hour, has appeared in two radio dramas, All Fingers and Thumbs with Bill Nighy, whom he punched dramatically, and Sound Barriers with Patricia Routledge and Caroline Quentin, both of whom he was prevented from punching.
A disabled performer, Steve is more concerned with success in the mainstream comedy circuit, but is happy to ‘deaf it up’ as necessary if the money is ok and there are sandwiches.
