Following Amos’ recent hugely successful UK tour of The Feelgood Factor (playing to 60,000 people) he’s back with his special brand of melt-in-the-middle comedy, to cheer us up and show what has just been medically proven, that laughter really is the best medicine.
The funny man finally has his own TV show and he didn’t have to wait for Lenny Henry to die. The Stephen K Amos Show will be a mix of stand-up, sketch characters and audience participation with hidden camera antics. Robbie Williams, Matt Lucas and David Walliams feature and the show will introduce numerous comical characters from “Frank”, the fashion conscious security guard at the BBC reception, to “Paul Hammer”, the stuntman who doubles for white actors. All characters are played by Stephen, including his mother, “Buki”, who Stephen makes phone calls to during the show.
Stephen K Amos said: “Obviously I’m thrilled – although now my mum will find out I’m a stand-up comedian. She thinks I drive a minicab.”
