Along with his clutch of awards and critical acclaim, Stephen Grant must surely have the right to the title of hardest working comedian in the UK.  He is a regular compere of Krater Comedy Club at Komedia, which has won Best Comedy Venue in the South for an unprecedented 7 years. Stephen still finds the time to headline and MC gigs all over the country as well as being a regular guest on The Cutting Edge, deputizing presenter on BBC Southern Counties Radio, warming up and performing on some of the biggest comedy shows on TV and MCing for numerous corporate events.

It is not hard to see why Stephen is so popular. He possesses an energy and intellect which combined make for dynamite comedy.  His speed and dynamism create a magical energy which has audiences rapt and hanging onto his every word. 

Stephen writes for Rob Beckett on Mock the Week. He has also written for Russell Kane on Live at the Electric as well as for Lee Nelson's Well Good Show for Avalon TV and Seann Walsh for Channel 4's Stand Up For The Week.

2012 saw Stephen bring a new solo show, 'Snowglobe', to the Brighton Comedy Festival.  

In 2011, Stephen travelled to Australia as part of ‘Bulmers Best of the Edinburgh Fest’ in the Adelaide Fringe Festival and the Brisbane Comedy Festival.

PRESS

“Right from the word go his audience were in fits of laughter as we were subjected to his relentless comedy… comedy bordering on genius.”***** Three Weeks

“He turned his comedy focus from the larger picture over to the smaller one, mining comedy gold along the way… Perfect anecdotal material… his happiness was boisterous and infectious.”*****The Latest 7

“He’s famously pedantic, relentlessly logical and with the kind of comedy vision that can see round corners... you’re never more than 15 seconds away from a really good laugh” *****Chortle

“engaging…warm and likable” Scotland on Sunday

“genius” **** The List



“Brilliant…this show will have you chuckling to yourself hours afterwards”**** The Scotsman

“This is tight, intelligent comedy at its best…damn funny” **** Three Weeks

“Classic stand-up of the highest order…solid, very funny and deeply incisive” **** Skinny Fest

“Excellent” **** One4Review

“Unique and hilarious” **** Broadway Baby

“an unstoppable, ebullient motormouth…that kind of hard-to-fake passion and cheeriness is what makes comedy-goers warm to him, and what is his greatest strength” Chortle

“Grant, whose regular slot at the Brighton Komedia Club has earned him a cult status, is an engaging host and an easy person to spend an hour with” The Independent.

“Grant revels in his slick geekiness and this show is an absolute pleasure, an intelligent fast-paced whirlwind of thoughts and theories, all wrapped up beautifully with a bit of wonderfully nerdish IT.” **** The List

“consummate comedian” Time Out
