Praise indeed. And Peter should know; he’s had Steve on three of his shows –  Max & Paddy’s Road to Nowhere, Phoenix Nights and, more recently, Car Share.

The stand-up has also appeared alongside Robson Greene and Mark Benton on Christmas Lights, playing a very naught Santa, according to his IMDB page.

Ball skills!

As well as making everyone laugh, Steve showed off a very impressive skill for juggling balls – with his mouth!
