The 'guilty pleasure' (Daily Record) returns with a show less about becoming a popstar, more about finding your own X Factor. For years, Stephen hid from the spotlight, dreaming of the razzle dazzle, but now he takes to the mic with 'warm, affectionate, yet biting wit' (TheGayUK.com). Join Stephen for one of his infamous gossips as he covers everything from celebrity culture and classroom dramas, to dating and social media, in this journey of self-discovery (like Katy Perry's World Tour, with less songs!) 'A great addition to the comedy scene' **** (Sunday Express).

Stephen adds his sass and charm to stories of finding himself in his journey of self-discovery. Think less early 2000s Popstar and more finding his X Factor. His latest show sees him open up about his conviction and confidence within himself rather than regret (unlike choosing a late night kebab which is definitely just regret) all done with a wink, a smile and a bellyful of laughs. With his new show, he has our vote!
Stephen has been seen on many a stage around the UK. In 2014, he performed to a sold-out crowd in London's West End for 'Stand-up for Shelter' alongside Stewart Lee and Sean Hughes as well as performing at Latitude Festival. Stephen also had the privilege of being the first ever MC at Stonewall's Summer Party/25th Birthday, hosting the evening and introducing Beverley Knight. 2015 has seen him carry on this success as he supported Katherine Ryan on her UK Spring tour.
His TV credits include appearing on Celebrity Big Brother's Bit on the Side as well as having been the warm-up artist for Loose Women and Let's Lunch with Gino and Mel (ITV) as well as for various shows on BBC3. As a writer, Stephen has contributed articles to Attitude and Live Manchester and has also taken part in debates for the Huffington Post, New York.
