The past six months have seen him embark on his first critically acclaimed UK tour, perform a season at the prestigious Soho Theatre in London plus support Katherine Ryan on her recent sold-out UK outing. His friendly brand of gossipy humour has made him one of the Britain’s most exciting up-and-coming acts in comedy at the moment.

His recent and varied TV work includes him becoming the resident agony uncle on ITV1s ‘Zoe Ball on Sunday’ and appearances on Five’s ‘Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit on the Side’ and Comedy Central’s ‘Live at The Comedy Store’ adding to his extensive back catalogue of TV and radio work.

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.
