Stephen Bailey

Comedian, television personality and writer

'Guilty pleasure' (Daily Record) Stephen Bailey is a comedian, television personality and writer. Stephen’s brand of gossipy humour has made him one of the most sought-after comedians performing on the UK comedy circuit. He is 'annoyingly sharp' (The New Current) and audiences relate to his sassy style as he takes to the stage with 'fantastic natural wit and charisma' (Edinburgh Festivals).

Familiar to audiences of Big Brother's Bit on the Side, Stephen will soon be seen on Channel 5's new six-part series The Funny Thing About and ITV2's Safeword. He has most recently been seen supporting Katherine Ryan on her UK tour. His approach is 'warm and affectionate yet no less biting in its wit' (The Gay UK), which made him the perfect choice to host Stonewall's 25th Anniversary Party. He regularly contributes articles to Attitude magazine and in 2015 he was nominated for the Amused Moose Comedy Award (Best Show) at the Edinburgh Fringe.

More than just a comic, he is also (some might say shockingly) a black belt in Tae Kwon-Do, has a degree in Languages - (totes fluent in French - sexy) AND loves a conspiracy theory (preferably involving a celebrity and a cucumber).
