Stephen Bailey: Can’t Think Straight (Fringe Preview Manchester)

Please note this is an 18+ event

FRIENDS OF MANCHESTER – I am bringing my BRAND NEW show STEPHEN BAILEY: CAN’T THINK STRAIGHT to Gullivers to show all of you before I take it up to the Edinburgh Fringe to find fame and fortune

IT’S FREE (because it’s not perfect yet!! So you’re essentially guinea pigs – I say with love)

Please let me know by DM if you can make it and I can ensure you get a seat. This room holds 35 people and so it will be intimate. Me, you and testing a new show. Think of this as my Adele Acoustic set

Stephen Bailey: Can’t Think Straight is the unmissable new stand up show about illuminating your self-worth from a rising star who has found his voice and is finally feeling good enough. In his most honest performance to date, Stephen tackles everything from celebrity culture and dating to politics and working-class family life.

SHOW 7.30-8.30pm

Stephen Bailey is a comedian, television personality and writer, whose friendly and open brand of humour has made him one of the most sought after acts on the UK comedy circuit. He is “annoyingly sharp” (The New Current) and audiences relate to his fun and sassy style as he takes to the stage with “fantastic natural wit and charisma” (Edinburgh Festivals Magazine). In 2015, Stephen was nominated for the Amused Moose Comedy Award for Best Show.

Having previously supported Katherine Ryan on her UK tour, 2017 has seen Stephen hitting the road with his debut tour Stephen Bailey: Nation’s Sweetheart as well as guest hosting Sunday Takeover on Virgin Radio and being named one of Attitude Magazine’s Top 100 Bachelors.

A vocal supporter of LGBT rights, Stephen regularly contributes articles to Attitude magazine and the Huffington Post, he host Stonewall’s 25th Anniversary Party and his recent interview for AOL Build about the LGBT movement went viral. His TV credits include Safeword (ITV2), Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit on the Side (Channel 5), Celebrity Advice Bureau (W), Kate’s Wardrobe Secrets (ITVBe), It’s Not Me, It’s You (Channel 5). Away from the stage and screen, this working-class, ginger, gay, northern comic is also a black belt in Tae Kwon-Do, speaks fluent French and loves a good conspiracy theory.
