Steve Day describes himself as Britain’s only deaf comedian, if there are any others he hasn't heard. For the past eleven years Steve has been performing to huge laughter around the country and abroad, well they tell him the laughter was huge to humour him, he doesn't know either way.

Married with five children, a fact nothing to do with not being able to hear the word 'No', Steve has been described as 'warm and witty' by the Scotsman and has received many other rave reviews whilst performing shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. gave him five stars in 2007 for Deafy's Island Discs, a show The Sunday Times called 'Funny and Moving'. This show toured the UK in 2008, Steve's third national tour of the uk, and has been performed in several countries in Europe and translated into Italian. No-one knows why.

A disabled performer, Steve is more concerned with success in the mainstream comedy circuit, but is happy to 'deaf it up' as necessary if the money is ok and there are sandwiches.

"Revelatory and very funny" - The Guardian

"Warm, funny, frank and thought-provoking" - The Scotsman

In 1998 Smug Roberts he released the novelty anthem "Meat Pie, Sausage Roll (Come on England, Gi's a Goal)" as "Grandad Roberts". Both the character and song stemming from his afternoon radio show on Key 103 and subsequent stand up comedy routine. Three years prior to that Smug was performing his first stand up gig when he was discovered by none other than Caroline Aherne (Mrs Merton Show and The Royle Family). Since then he's gone on to star in 'That Peter Kay Thing' Channel 4, 'Cold Feet' ITV, 'Phoenix Nights' Channel 4, Steve Coogan's Film '24 Hour Party People' and Channel 4’s Bafta award winning Buried. His confidence as a performer is legendary in the comedy world and in terms of the funnies he is on a par with his contemporaries Peter Kay and Jonny Vegas.
