Bored of his day job, Stockport’s Steve Shanyaski had an epiphany, walked out the door and straight onto the comedy stage. He hasn’t looked back since. Endlessly charming, Steve’s inherent warmth and cheeky, roguish twinkle shines through his material, elevating him to quite another level as a performer.
Combining surreal observations with wildly tangential imaginings, Shanyaski’s off kilter set pieces have audiences fully immersed in ‘Stevie World’ as he leads them, Pied Piper-like down the charming avenues of his inner mind. His whirlwind performances and thrilling routines have constantly proven a hit with even the
quietest crowds… The key to his act being his energy and silliness. Steve is a ‘go to’ headline act for all the major comedy bookers including The Stand clubs in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle, The highly regarded chain of Glee Clubs and Manchester’s Frog and Bucket.
Shanyaski has a strong track record at the Edinburgh Fringe after his 2009 debut with ‘Reality Check’. Shanyaski returned in 2011 with his 4 star-reviewed show ‘Steve Shanyaski’s Life Survival Bible’ which proved to be a popular choice amongst the late night festival goers and critics. Audiences left happy and glowing after an hour of his high energy quirkiness and slick confident routines. This was an opinion shared by critics, who repeatedly awarded him with 4 stars and gushing compliments.
Steve has performed to audiences as diverse as bikers festivals and the Royal Variety Performance and his TV appearances include Comedy Store presents… and Jason Manford’s Comedy Rocks.
