REVIEWS:

August 2008: Edinburgh Fringe
Alex Petty, Producer Laughing Horse Comedy "Steven Young is a big American, with long hair and a powerful presence and big voice – imagine Meatloaf doing stand-up - who commands his audience from the stage with ease and produces an hour comedy show that feels every bit rock'n'roll as comedy. I've seen Steve many times at my own shows doing 20 minute sets, but this was the first time I'd seen his full hour show and it was an impressive performance,"

13, April 07: Heresy at the Jekyll and Hyde
Tom Maxwell-critic, Evening News (Edinburgh) "Larger than life."

13, April 07: Your Review - excerpts from the Evening News (Edinburgh)

Reviews from K’nuts Club-Peterborough.

WOW!!! We have had Steve at K’nuts before…every time it is a completely different set. This man is a comic genius…If this man was on TV I would stay at home and switch on the normally disappointing box."

This man was on fire.
