Stephen Lynch, the American award-winning musical comedian and viral video sensation is delighted to announce his first UK tour since 2013: ‘The My Old Heart Tour’. With over 5 millions views on YouTube and top rated Comedy Central specials, Stephen will be performing a limited 7 night tour this September, bringing his unique blend of musical based comedy back to his legions of British fans.
Stephen Lynch considers himself “a musician trapped in the body of a comedian” and has built a hugely successful career combining the two. His riotously entertaining songs have amassed millions of views online and have gone viral across the world. Whether he’s singing an ode to “queer tattoos,” telling his potential paramour all the things he won’t be doing for her (he ain’t fightin’ no Lion), or lamenting his new vegan lifestyle (“Tofurkey? Tof**k yourself- I want some meat”) Stephen is able to wrote witty yet cutting lyrics to describe many of his life experiences.
Starting out in New York in 1996, Stephen quickly developed a devoted fan base and caught the attention of Comedy Central, who invited him to record his 1st cable special in 2000. That special became one of their highest rated shows in the series, almost unheard of for an unknown comedian. His second Comedy Central special debuted in January 2008, with similarly high ratings.
His five CD’s, ‘Lion’, ‘A Little Bit Special’, ‘Superhero’, ‘The Craig Machine’ and ‘3 Balloons’ have sold hundreds of thousands of copies around the world. His first DVD, ‘Live at the El Rey’ was certified Gold by RIAA. Stephen has toured with some of the biggest names in comedy, including Lewis Black and the late Mitch Hedberg. He’s also headlined his own sold out shows throughout the United States, Australia and Europe, where it’s been said he’s “the Beyonce of Scandinavia.”
Stephen is also an award- winning Broadway star, starring as the lead in Broadway musical The Wedding Singer. His performance earned him nominations for some of the highest honours in American Theatre including the Drama League Award for Distinguished Performance, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Actor in a Musical, as well as the highly coveted Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical
