Highly acclaimed, uplifting stand-up comedian and broadcaster Stephen K Amos is back from his world tour and hits the road with his brand-new tour Bouquets and Brickbats. His main aim is to cheer us up, for a moment, and try to help us forget what a mess the world finds itself in right now.
Bouquets and Brickbats. Praise and criticism. Love and hate. Why such extremes? Everyone these days seems to be an expert, a critic, a judge. Or a victim. Are we a nation of snowflakes with an unwarranted sense of entitlement, unable to process opposing opinions.?
Do people really understand what they feel so strongly about, and does knowledge promote more neutral feelings? Why is everybody either mortally offended or so much a fan that they fail to see the faults?
Two years after Brexit and Britain is more divided than ever. Forget everything that’s going on in the world, and immerse yourself in the warming comedy of “one of the most likable figures in British Comedy” (Radio Times).
As seen on Pointless Celebrities, QI, The People’s History of LGBT (BBC), UKTV’s Celebrity Storage Hunters and Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled, and BBC1’s Live At The Apollo and Have I Got News For You, as well as What Does The K Stand For? on BBC Radio 4. The Stephen K Amos Talk Show, in which Stephen invited popular stand-ups to chinwag about this, that and the other, was filmed at last year’s Edinburgh Festival and is now available on Amazon’s Audible.
Stephen is also taking part in the new three-part series Pilgrimage: The Road to Rome, alongside Katy Brand and Les Dennis. The BBC Two series, which will air soon, sees celebrities give up their creature comforts to follow the Via Francigena trail – to finish up at the Vatican.
