Steve Best has built a reputation as a great visual comic, harnessing a mind-boggling array of gadgets and gags to keep his audience in stitches. Funny, frenetic and mad, his unique form of slapstick comedy is backed up with astounding talent; he plays the guitar like a genius, is wonderful at magic, and fluent in Serbo-Croatian.

His UK profile has been hugely boosted by supporting some major tours, including FRANK SKINNER, OMID DJALILI and CRAIG CHARLES. With Frank Skinner, Steve was part of the biggest live comedy show at Battersea Power Station playing in front of 6000 people. He has headlined an extensive university tour and took his own show to Edinburgh to massive critical acclaim. Steve co-wrote and performed two sketch shows “Death By Sketches” and “Skitzaphrantic” for the Edinburgh Festival. Steve starred in C5's The Big Stage, BBC1's The Stand Up Show, and ITV’s Weapons of Mass Distraction. He starred in a Film Four/Channel Four short film “Life as we know it.” He was the audience warm up performer for the SKINNER & BADDIEL “Unplanned” live TV show as well as for FRANK SKINNER’S chat show.
"Rip-roaringly funny. See him!"
”Inspired collection of visual japes”
”Steve Best delivers an extraordinary set, a mix of brilliant cartoonish slapstick and visual humour that is unquestionably the highlight of the evening. His finale is an outstanding display of comic virtuosity"
“He doesn't have a hat with bells on, but Steve Best still would have made a great medieval court jester. His act is a wonderfully daft succession of stupid props and silly pratfalls - a welcome break from straight stand-up. Best eats balloons, shits knotted hankies, does DIY dentistry and pumps up a blow-up doll while playing the theme tune from The Deer Hunter."
William Cook, The Guardian
"An unholy cross between Steve Martin, in his early days, Lee Evans and Fozzie Bear"
