Steve Shanyaski

A bucketload of charm and some surreal and silly material coupled with his brilliant comedy songs make Steve the ideal booking for any evening.

Steve walked out on a mind numbing office job and straight onto a comedy stage in the beginning of 2003, and has not looked back since.

Within half a year of his comedic birth he had made it through to the semi-finals of the BBC New Comedian of the Year, the North West Comedian of the Year Final, and later that year he had the honour of appearing on the BBC7 Radio Showcase “Spanking New”.

Since then he has added to his list of accolades by being named the Holsten Pils Comedian of the Year 2005, and the Birmingham Comedy Festival’s best breaking talent 2005.

Steve has more strings in his bow than Nicanor Zabaleta (THE world famous harpist!). A very charismatic and silly performer with a natural talent for spinning yarns, a fertile imagination, and a skilled musical background, his act combines as many elements as Steve can muster.
