Steve Royle is an actor, writer, comedian, juggler, and most recently a regular presenter on BBC Radio Lancashire. Steve has just completed another few months as Special Guest on Dave Spikey’s ‘Living The Dream Tour’. Steve is a regular television warm-up for programmes including Question Of Sport, Stars In Their Eyes, Junior Mastermind, Bullseye and The Price is Right. Steve was the first person ever to perform an audience warm-up for the Royal Variety Show.
Last year saw Steve’s stand-up work go ballistic. He is a regular headline act at The Comedy Store and other alternative venues, and performed alongside Steve Coogan & Peter Kay at the Apollo Theatre Manchester.
During the last few years Steve has supported Peter Kay many times; He has toured with Dave Spikey on his ‘Overnight Success tour’, performed with the cast of ‘Phoenix Nights’ and Badly Drawn Boy to over five thousand people at the Europa Festival in Manchester, and up until last year, performed every summer as ‘Mad Edgar’, a jester character he invented ten years ago.
Steve is also co-founder of the ‘Slaughterhouse- Live’ character comedy nights. The group have taken the Edinburgh Festival Fringe by storm with sell out shows and rave reviews for two years running.
In 2002 Steve performed at various festivals at the World Cup in Japan, proving that he can bridge the language barrier when it comes to entertaining!
In 2001 he was resident at Blackpool Tower. The same year he appeared in two summer season shows with Mick Miller at The Wintergardens and Bernie Clifton and The Bachelors at The North Pier. Steve has spent two winters aboard cruise ships and has appeared in Pantomime every Christmas for the last eight years.
