Stephen Bailey has to date played Always Be Comedy on four occasions and I was in the audience for all of his guest performances. Bailey’s camp routines were hilarious from start to finish. The audience provided some material and the whole room just rebounded off him.
Bailey made clever insights about the world and his stories were cleverly linked and very witty. The routines covered dating, celebrities, and culture from a very personal point of view and were tackled in a stimulating, sensitive, open and honest way bringing much camp humour to the packed audiences.
He easily won over the audiences with his outrageous jokes, stories, and anecdotes about his love life. Bailey’s audience banter was second-to-none extracting comedy from any conversation.
In October 2020, Bailey was a guest for Always Be Comedy Online. Broadcasting from a hotel room, after his new routine of outrageous material, he took his camera to the hotel lounge and introduced the online audience to his friend Kerry Katona which brought the house down.
Bailey headlined for the Return of The Craic Online Comedy Club that I watched in January 2021 and then for Always Be Comedy Online in February 2021 and February 2022. His warm personality and enthusiasm combined with immense comic talent generated continual laughter and he was extremely popular.
