Steve Womack has long been established as one of the country’s finest comedy entertainers; the bulk of his work being in the corporate market.
Steve Womack: Comedy Musician
He sang and played guitar throughout Europe and Scandinavia. He played in pubs, clubs, bars, cafes, street corners; and even a stint in a massage parlour (the less said about that the better).
His songbook expanded at an alarming rate resulting in several marathon performances; going on into the early hours with crowd after crowd clamouring for more. Although blessed with a clear and incisive wit, comedy was not yet featuring in his stage act. This development was to come later via his written efforts for other comedians.
Steve Womack BBC Work
When asked by the manager of a local BBC radio station, if he was able to write humorous topical songs for insertion into a current events programme; Steve took the “…of course I can ride a horse Mr. DeMille” approach, lied through his teeth and said “Yes!” As it turned out, he could. The BBC alone have since commissioned and broadcast over 150 of his topical songs. On TV programmes such as; ‘That’s Life’, ‘The Late, Late Breakfast Show’, ‘Swap Shop’, ‘My Show’, ‘Look North’, ‘Pebble Mill at One’. Plus loads of radio shows both BBC and Independent.
Mundane To Hilarious
The newly discovered ability to turn mundane into the hilarious was soon to stretch itself to verbal material; which would eventually find its way on to the screen and out of the mouths of many established comedy stars. The next step was both predictable and inevitable. Steve woke up one morning to find he was a comedian.
Award Winning Comedy
In 1988 he was voted winning comedian in Central TV’s New Faces Grand Final. This was followed by a 13 week series of ”Corrigan and Womack’ (teaming up with London Comedienne, Bernadine Corrigan); on Sky TV and the first series of ‘A Small Portion of Womack’ for BBC Radio 2. His reputation as a safe bet on the corporate scene began to spread. His humour is sharp and fresh, without being the slightest bit bland unlikely to offend.
His work has taken him all around the world and back again stopping off in:
- Northern Ireland
- Republic of Ireland
- Hong Kong
- South Africa
- Abu Dhabi
…and of course every corner of the British Mainland.
His humour sharp, fresh and – without being the slightest bit bland – unlikely to offend.
“In summing up its fair to say that Steve Womack is unique. His ability to maintain equal credibility in both music and comedy is unrivalled. If you haven’t booked him already it’s time you booked him now”
