Steve Best (producer)
"Inspired collection of visual japes" - Malcolm Hay Time Out
Steve Best is a great visual comedian, harnessing a mind-boggling array of gadgets and gags to keep his audience in stitches. Funny, frenetic and mad, his act can feature anything from blowing up a woman and eating balloons, to cutting his hand off and doing press-ups on his willy. His unique form of slapstick comedy is backed up with astounding talent; he plays the guitar like a genius, can juggle 5 balls, ride a unicycle and is fluent in Serbo-Croatian.
Steve has performed his unique style of comedy all over the world, and hopes to go even further afield. As well as performing in such places as Bali, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Cape Town, Bosnia, The Falkland Islands, he has played in near enough damn it every comedy club in Britain. He has supported Frank Skinner, Craig Charles and Omid Djalili on huge nationwide tours.
Steve co-produced the very first show Abnormally Funny People in 2005, and along with Simon Minty registered Abnormally Funny People Ltd in July 2006. Steve is the ‘token’ non-disabled participant.
Steve’s many TV credits include The Stand-Up Show (BBC1), The Big Stage (C5), and more recently twice on The Slammer (CBBC).
He is a visiting lecturer at Middlesex University on the comedy module, and his most recent project is Comedy Snapshot, a photography book featuring over 400 comedians with their own jokes, facts and flights of fancy.
