“I feel like I have something to say about the world and so I’ve decided to impose that view on the unsuspecting audience. For returners, there are still some dick jokes.”
WHO: Stephen Bailey, Performer
WHAT: “Following his sell-out debut tour and appearances on ITV’s Safeword, Channel 5’s Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit on the Side and W’s Celebrity Advice Bureau, everyone’s favourite ‘guilty pleasure’ (Daily Record) returns with another of his infamous gossips. Join Stephen, support for Katherine Ryan on her UK tour, as he tackles everything from celebrity culture to politics, and from dating to working-class family life. ‘He has charisma, he has his own style, he has a wicked line in material and the ability to go off piste with crowd work that is achingly funny’ **** (One4Review.co.uk).”

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
This is my fourth fringe show but it is the one I am most excited about. In the past, I have just done 60 minutes of stand up – but this year it’s more of a story. I’ve grown up a bit and I feel like I have something to say about the world and so I’ve decided to impose that view on the unsuspecting audience. For returners, there are still some dick jokes.
What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’16?: Since then I bought my whole family a Toby Carvery (with dessert).
Tell us about your show.
I LIVED the whole thing, started telling people my story through a mic, cut out the fat and a show was born. After the Fringe, I’m taking it on a huge tour to places like Newcastle where I know at least six people. This year the show is all about me being a feminine man in a masculine world. Some men like football, others like lip-syncing to Little Mix and some like both. It’s called the world and it’s fine.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
I think after seeing me you should go and see something the complete opposite to me. Like Politics or a play. I also recommend you go and see the Manchester powerhouse that is Eggs Collective. I’ve been on a night out to G.A.Y with these ladies and they aren’t messing about.
