At a time when we all need more laughs they’re certainly coming thick and fast in the city with Steve Royle one of many top comedy stars heading to Peterborough.
Having proved a huge hit on Britain’s Got Talent 2020 with hard to please judge Simon Cowell describing him as “naturally funny” and David Walliams describing his routine as “one of the funniest performances I’ve ever seen” – Steve’s taking the stage at the Key Theatre in Peterborough on Thursday October 14.
His performance in the final of the TV talent show left the judges breathless with laughter and saw him voted into the top three by the public – even comedy royalty Peter Kay has called Steve “A brilliant comedian” so he’s certainly not one to miss as he sets out on his debut tour.
