Steve Gribbin first took to the stage at the tender age of 13. He was cruelly beaten into third place by a ventriloquist and a Donny Osmond impersonator. You can’t keep a good man down though and Steve’s love of making people laugh rivals that of his affections for Liverpool FC and Elvis Costello.
By his late teens, Steve was fifty per cent of comedy duo Skint Video just as something called ‘alternative comedy’ was beginning to infuriate the tabloids.. The next few years became a blur of festivals, student unions, miners benefits, appearances at Britain’s first dedicated comedy clubs and even on the telly! Proper telly. When it had four channels. Saturday Night Live, The Mary Whitehouse Experience and even their own Radio One show.
All good things come to an end and Skint Video was no different. Steve got custody of the guitar and metamorphosised into the comedy circuit’s most prolific and productive performer.
Steve puts absolutely everything he has into every single gig he does. Sweat drips as he hammers out short, sharp satirical songs that strike chords throughout the room. If it’s in the news, he’s written something rapturously funny about it, slaughtering sacred cows with deft musicianship and crowd slaying wit.
No one can count themselves as a true comedy fan until they have seen Steve Gribbin. A bulletproof booking, whether it’s Glastonbury Festival or The Comedy Store, Steve will more than do the job and we are proud to call ourselves fans.
‘A highly refreshing and original comic with a gift for sharp observations and up-to-the-minute political asides. With more energy than a friendly Tasmanian devil, this animated comedian tells jokes, plays the guitar and sings lyrics. Hilarious!’ The Scotsman
‘Satirical songs are hard to pull off successfully, but if anyone can do it, Steve Gribbin can. In fact, he pulls it off with real aplomb.’ The Independent
‘You can count the number of truly imaginative comic singers currently on the circuit on the fingers of one hand. One of this select band is Steve Gribbin.’ Time Out
It’s been a few years since dairy farmer Pete Otway swapped the cow sheds of Cumbria for the comedy clubs of the big, wide world and even hosting a YouTube comedy travelogue with Serbian comedy stars Krusevac Geto.
In fact, Pete has carved himself quite the side hustle in presenting with regular appearances on the Hits Network, Rock FM, Radio City,XS Manchester and BBC Radio 4 Extra. Pete has also performed stand-up on BBC Radio 2 and 4.
“Brilliant. Very, very funny” Steve Wright, BBC Radio 2 “Laugh out loud funny” Broadway Baby
“An audacious comedian… few have the deftness of Otway” Voice Magazine
