Never laughed so hard at a stand-up comedian even after having seen the likes of Lee Evans, Jason Manford. Steve was quite simply the best, had me and the other 11 people in our group in tears from start to finish! will be seeing him again soon! all this talk about how nasty he can be is tosh, if you cant laugh at yourselves or take a f'in joke, stay at home you depressin fogies! :D
As one of the below comments says- some really good jokes spoilt by lazy, needlessly nasty material. I found his attitude a bit smug too, to be honest.
He really made me laugh, just what I needed. I was on a hen night and he made the night... I would highly recommend going to see Steve Harris,
I saw him last night in Edinburgh last night and he was awful. Jokes about gangsta rap and the fact he's northern? How interesting.
Saw Steve at Highlight in Birmingham last night and I have to agree with the majority of comments on here to say he is brilliant, a real top notch comedian and had the room rolling ...and to say he couldnt handle hecklers is just tosh, he dispatched the usual drunken comment with aplomb. Great routine and really funny .... Well worth a ticket when he is near you!
Steve is simply bulletproof. Amazing delivery, and I mean f'in flawless. Plus such strong gags! New comics: watch and learn from Steve!
"The casual sexism, anti-disability, etc., stuff is pretty nasty; it's persistent and just a kind of unpleasant bullying. But when he stops doing that, some of his stuff is inspired. The gag about anxiety on fairground rides and the one on poo in the sea were both wonderful, and got bigger laughs, too" Are you that woman in the Wheelchair that was heckling?
