Stephen K Amos
His Majesty’s Theatre
With a natural humour and instant charisma, timing was everything for Stephen K Amos as the English comedian darted between topics and punch lines with ease throughout a diverse and intelligent set.
In a conversational, relatable manner, he was able to tackle mainstream media, social media, racism and more in a way that rendered stronger engagement from the audience.
“I love the way that slowly burnt through,” he said about a joke involving genitals; a statement that could be applied to the whole set as he broached topics in a way that no doubt had punters thinking about the material in depth on the home from the show. Amos summed it up perfectly when he the idea was “acknowledging our differences but laughing together”.
