Probably best known as being a third of the We Are Klang sketch group with Greg Davies and Marek Larwood, Steve Hall is a superb stand-up in his own right and has provided support for Russell Howard on three of his sell-out national tours. Steve has been called a Steve Coogan 'lookalike and soundalike', which makes sense as they are distantly related through a convoluted web of Irish cousins. Hecklers tend to think Steve looks more like Mr Bean. Daily Telegraph Comedy Awards 2003 and BBC Comedy Awards 2003 runner-up. 'The most intelligent stand-up you've never heard of' (GQ) 'His phrasing is joyous and choice of words close to poetic' (Metro) 'Deadpan brilliance' (Time Out) 'Wonderfully misanthropic' (Sunday Times) ''Russell Howard's fine tour support' (The Times) 'A lovely, friendly, thoroughly entertaining show' (Chortle) 'This is stand-up as it should be: snappy and smart, occasionally nasty, and always funny' (The List).
