A FIRM favourite at the Edinburgh Festival, selling out shows year after year, Stephen K Amos will be bringing his critically acclaimed Edinburgh 2008 show Find the Funny to the Hackney Empire next Friday.

Stephen creates weird and wonderful connections with his audience, who are drawn into his personal world and his thoughts are brought to life by his chatty delivery and his ability to become his characters.

Last year Stephen appeared on the last in the series of BBC1's Have I Got News For You, made his mark with a set at The Royal Variety Show and tickled the funny bones of the audience on Live At the Apollo.

His Channel 4 documentary Batty Man was nominated for a Bafta and he made it to the finals of Last Comic Standing on Paramount Comedy.

He has had continued success in Australia, selling out 1,400 seat theatres for 10-day runs in Adelaide and Melbourne, has also performed at the prestigious Montreal Festival and even appeared in the West End production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's nest with Christian Slater.

Stephen K Amos will appear at the Hackney Empire on Friday, June 5 at 8pm
