Steve Parry: The Last Of The Famous International Amateurs.

“Belligerent, Welsh comedy no-gooder” – The Wire

“…mixes urgent political messages with crafty, irreverent punchlines.” – Total Politics

“Comedy’s answer to The Sleaford Mods” – Happy Mondays Comedy

After decades of procrastination, TV comedy writer Steve Parry, (Gladiators, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Live At The Apollo, I’m A Celeb, Love Island & many more…) is turning his back on the glitzy world of mainstream TV and unleashing his inner alternative comedy legend.

The Last Of The Famous International Amateurs, is an inventive and satirical sing-a-long, packed with bawdy jokes, showbiz anecdotes, revolutionary rants and spoken word weirdness.

A hilarious memoir of a socialist working at the coal face of cheesy light entertainment. This ‘permanent work in progress’ offers a unique adventure into the mind of a middle-aged showbiz insider, still chasing his youthful dreams of alternative comedy stardom.

Expect a riotous and radical celebration of professional amateurism - stand up, stories and songs of sedition.
