Production Details

After sell-out seasons of THE BEST MEDICINE across Australia in 2011, the great Stephen K Amos returns with his new show ‘LAUGHTER IS MY AGENDA’. Full of his life observations and hilarious stories, this show will be bursting with Stephen’s special brand of melt-in-the-middle comedy.

Amos has charmed and entertained audiences all over the world with his easy, relaxed style, intelligent wit and honest warm-hearted joie de vivre.  The last few years have seen Stephen steadily become a household name performing all over Australia and appearing on 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), The Royal Variety Performance(ITV) and Celebrity Masterchef (BBC2). A gifted actor, Amos starred in the 2010 Edinburgh Festival and London West End seasons of ‘One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest’ alongside Christian Slater.

Stephen K Amos really is as good as everyone says.

Review by Paul Simei-Barton 02nd May 2012

Strutting on stage with gangsta swag and greeting the audience in a posh English accent, Stephen K Amos embodies the fluid, mashed-up sense of identity that characterises globalism in a digital age.

The incongruous cross-currents of dual British-Nigerian heritage offer a rich source of anecdotes and provide a free-fire zone for some hilarious jibes at a grab-bag of ethnic types. [More]  _______________________________
