"One of my favourite comedians."
"Like a mixture between Eddie Izzard and Peter Kay… with a guitar!"
"A star in the making."
In 2003 Steve walked out of a mind-numbing office job in order to persue a career in comedy – and has never looked back.
Endlessly charming, Steve’s inherent warmth and cheeky, roguish twinkle shines through his material, elevating him to quite another level as a performer.
Within the first six months of his comedy career he made it through to the semi-finals of the BBC New Comedian of the Year and the North West Comedian of the Year final, and later that year was booked to appear on the BBC7 Radio Showcase Spanking New. Since then he has gone from strength to strength, adding to this list of accolades by being named the Holsten Pils Comedian of the Year and the Birmingham Comedy Festival Best Breaking Talent.
Combining surreal observations with wild imaginings, his off kilter set pieces have audiences fully immersed in ‘Stevie World’ as he leads them Pied Piper-like, down the charming avenues of his inner mind.
Following 2009’s Reality Check Steve returned to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2011 with his 4 star-reviewed show Steve Shanyaski’s Life Survival Bible. A popular choice amongst the late night festival goers, audiences left happy and glowing after an hour of his high energy quirkiness and slick confident routines.
He has appeared on Comedy Rocks with Jason Manford (ITV) and the Comedy Store Presents (Comedy Central)
Steve has also co-presented XS Manchester’s popular prime time radio show Football Social alongside legends of football for years. Feed with Steve is his popular youtube cooking channel.
