Stephen K Amos heading for The Playhouse
Harlow Playhouse / Thu 16th Jan 2014 at 12:43pm
FRESH from total sell-out tours of Australia and New Zealand, as well as winning The Critics Award 2013 at the Perth International Festival, Stephen K Amos is back on the road throughout the UK this year with his brand new show The Spokesman.
He will be heading to the Harlow Playhouse on Thursday January 30th at 8pm.
The maestro of feel-good comedy, Stephen has had an interesting life so far but he is often asked to be a spokesman on certain matters. Why is that? Is he qualified to do this? What is it about spokesmen these days? They’re everywhere. Stephen will be looking at spokesmen and many other things besides in his excellent new show.
Stephen has just had his sitcom What Does The K Stand For? commissioned by BBC Radio 4, which he has co-written with Jonathan Harvey. The story revolves around him growing up being black, funny and gay.
Also, his Radio 4 show: Life – An Idiot’s Guide has just been commissioned for a second series.
Stephen had his autobiography published last year I Used To Say My Mum Was Shirley Bassey.

“Stephen K Amos is a funny man. I know he is supposed to be funny; he does stand-up comedy. But even so, he is genuinely funny in the way that makes your jaw ache from laughing” **** Anna Solding, InDaily
