“Bugeja has an eye for original comic detail that’s all his own”
James Kettle, The Guardian
“this is a show that blends the intelligence of a well crafted hour with some touching emotional honesty”

“the owner of the longest fingers you will ever see”

After returning from the Melbourne Comedy Festival following a nationwide tour and sold out run at last year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe, STEVE BUGEJA will return to Soho Theatre on 29th May for a final performance of his critically acclaimed show Unpronounceable. Having almost secured his first ever girlfriend at the Fringe in 2015, Unpronounceable sees STEVE caught between reason and passion, as he decides whether to fly across the world in pursuit of his newfound love, or do the sensible thing and stay at home eating Cheerios in his pants.
Making a name for himself on TV and radio, STEVE has appeared on Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central), Top Tens (BBC Three), The Dog Ate My Homework (CBBC), Pop Sludge (4Music) and Fresh from the Fringe (BBC Radio 4). Also a prolific writer, STEVE has contributed material to Mock the Week (BBC Two), 8 out of 10 Cats (Channel 4), Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC Two), The Now Show (BBC Radio 4), and The News Quiz (BBC Radio 4). He also secured the position of UK’s funniest Lucozade salesman when he starred in a viral ad for the fluorescent soft drink alongside England and Tottenham footballer HARRY KANE, which may or may not have contributed to the almost immediate departure of the England squad from Euro 2016.
STEVE performed at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2014 as part of the Fringe’s longest-running showcase, The Comedy Zone, and followed up in 2015 with his critically acclaimed debut solo show Day Release. In 2014 STEVE also supported RUSSELL KANE on the national tour of his show Smallness, and 2012 saw him win the BBC’s Funny on Three sitcom competition and the Jesting About 2: Funny Gets Serious sketch competition.
What the press has said about Steve Bugeja:
“drum-tight, as if polished by a sitcom writers’ room to cram as many jokes in as humanly possible”
Steve Bennett, Chortle
“fascinating…The detail is delicious and the laughs warm steadily while Bugeja shares his story with unabashed honesty”
