Here’s one for your Friday night, Right On Your Sofa – join us for an evening with one of the UK’s best-loved comedy performers and writers, the one and only Steve Hewlett Ventriloquist.
We work closely with our Hub members, and there’s nothing we love more than getting out there together on Go-Sees to see what’s out there. Obviously 2020 put a spoke in those wheels so we adapted to working digitally instead, meeting online weekly and hosting two live showcases to get their thoughts on some new and different acts.
Performers from all over the country hopped onto Zoom to do their thing for 15 mins while our Hub members watched and made notes on how and where in the city they could potentially perform as part of future BtO events – if we don’t ask, how do we know what people want to see?
We had loads of fun and saw everything from acrobatics, drag and dance, to murder mysteries, music and light performance. Our Hub member’s choice for a Friday night gig was the very funny Steve, who’ll be joining us on Friday 11 June for an hour-long show. Our Hub members felt like he was a performer at the top of his game, someone families could watch together and enjoy with a laugh, and a good starting point for new audiences.
Steve’s been performing for three decades, touring with the likes of The Legendary Osmond’s, Sir Ken Dodd and Ricky Tomlinson, and working alongside Craig David, Ant & Dec, Stephen Mulhern, Sacha Baron Cohen, Craig Revel Horwood and Simon Cowell – just to name a few!
He’s the only Ventriloquist to reach the finals of Britain’s Got Talent in the show’s history, and you might also recognise him as a guest on Strictly Come Dancing and headliner for many comedy clubs and summer seasons across the UK.
He’s very, very funny and breathes new life into the art of Ventriloquism, so get ready for some Friday night belly laughs with this show for all the family.
