Stephen K Amos - What Does the K Stand For?

Media release; for immediate release

MARY TOBIN PRESENTS
STEPHEN K AMOS
WHAT DOES THE K STAND FOR?

Fresh from Stephen K Amos' new sitcom radio show for BBC4 (UK), What does the K stand for? revolves around his hilarious childhood stories. Expect big laugh out loud moments with plenty of heart, irreverence and quirk in Auckland (25 & 26, 29 Apr – 3 May) and Wellington (4 May) as part of the 2014 NZ International Comedy Festival.

Stephen K Amos has charmed and entertained audiences all over the world with his natural, assured delivery and his honest, original material. He can find the funny in some of the most unexpected places.

The last few years have seen Stephen steadily become a household name performing all over Australia & New Zealand and appearing on our television screens for The NZ International Comedy Gala and Australia’s Thank God You’re Here, Spicks & Specks,The Melbourne Comedy Festival Gala, Great Debate and Good News Week.

In the UK he has recently starred in a number of popular TV shows including Have I Got News For You (BBC One), Mock the Week (BBC2), The Royal Variety Performance(ITV) and Celebrity Masterchef (BBC2).

Amos is set to delight in an evening of big laughs, fun, warmth and audience interaction from the master of feel good comedy.

An eloquent and inherently charming performer, Amos has the distinction of being simply hilarious too. It's this kind of triple threat that defines great stand-up comedy and, indeed, makes (Amos) an A-grade affair. Highly recommended.’ - Beat.com

His material is impeccably crafted, his comic timing skillful and, throughout the show, his delivery remains conversational, amiable and relaxed as he strolls through local and global topics." 4.5 STARS - Herald Sun

The guy is a comedy genius’ 2013 - Westmoorland Gazette, UK
