Steve Rawlings brings an audience to life with his unique blend of comedy, and technical ability.

‘Hilarious and original, Steve Rawlings mixture of desperation and downbeat humour steals the show. His balancing a tray of bottles and glasses on his chin, while giving a running commentary on his difficulties is a classic piece of comic business.

The Fire Routine

This is knife-edge humour which involves the audience in sympathy for a man flogging himself to death for a laugh, and yet knowing that he is perfectly capable of performing the complicated and daring routines he has setup!'

Corporate events take up a large part of Steve's year as his act appeals to a much broader audience than most other performers and he can even perform fluently in German,Spanish and French with other languages to a lesser degree.This puts him much in demand with multi national companies as well as the English speaking market.

Comedy and Stunt Collection

Steve Rawlings is a truly unique performer who has broken down the barriers between stand up comedy and physical theatre. He has created a wonderfully entertaining blend of comedy, character, and technical ability, that keeps an audience on the edge of their seats.

Steve's success comes from original routines such as furniture juggling with a chair, table and vase of flowers (he is the only person in the world to do this! ), setting fire to his head, and juggling ping pong balls with his mouth. all overlaid with stand up comedy a comedian would be proud of.

Steve is refreshingly different and an asset to any show he takes part in.

‘A brisk skillful act that will get your heart in your throat and give you more bellylaughs than any comic and that's a rare treat!' The Guardian.

Steve's show comprises juggling ping pong balls with his mouth, a short demonstration of spontaneous combustion, a show stopping combination of balancing bottles and glasses, and juggling three blazing fire torches simultaneously, and ending with the astonishing spectacle of furniture juggling - a trick that hasn't been performed in over sixty years and to see Steve perform it, one can easily see why!

Steve has appeared as special guest in the West end production of ‘Sugar Babies' alongside Mickey Rooney and Ann Miller, and ‘The Royal Variety Performance' in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen.

He has been a big hit at comedy festivals the world over including Arosa (Switzerland), Cologne (Germany), Tarrega (Spain) and Lowlands (Holland). From which he developed ‘Steve Rawlings Live and Unstable' which toured and sold out in theatres across Europe.

His latest show formerly called ‘Tossers' now re-titled 'Catch' was a huge success at the Edinburgh festival receiving rave reviews in The Times, Le Monde, Bloomberg Press and more.
