WHAT THE PAPERS SAY
"In a class of his own"
"Inspired collection of visual japes"
"One of the most original and inventive comics on the circuit. Steve Best's act defies description. One 0f the great clowns of our time"
"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"
"The audiience was wowed by Steve Best's outstanding, highly energised act. His clown tricks and three-dimensional personality had us in stitches. Reminiscent of the late Charlie Chaplin, Best successfully pairs modern anagrams and classic slapstick antics."
"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 denistry and pumps up a blow-up doll while playing the theme tune from The Deer Hunter."
"There pressure therefore falls on the last act, Steve Best, to redeem the night. and he rises magnificently to the occasion. coming across like a children's party entertainer from hell, he seems to be on a mission to squeeze every last laugh out of the crowd with his non-stop gaggery, magic tricks, sound effects, guitar playing, and wonderfully random zaniness. Comparisons with Tommy Cooper are a no-brainer, but Best captures the fervent energy and the utter bonkers hilarity of the late fez-wearing funnyman with aplomb, reinventing the bumbling magician act for the twenty first century with the aid of a blow-up sex doll and an Elvis mask" - Graham Hughes, BBC
"He stinks of fish"
"this gag-a-second livewire... a blast."
