Comedian Steve Royle has been entertaining audiences for over 30 years!
A finalist on ITV’s ‘Britain’s Got Talent‘ Steve Royle is a fantastic comedian, actor, writer and juggler. Furthermore, he is an award-winning presenter on BBC Radio.
It was whilst studying history at University that he broke the boredom of revision by juggling three oranges. This led to training in circus skills, and onto work as a juggler, welcoming visitors to the Granada Studios Tour, and as a court jester with his own juggling show at Camelot theme park.
His huge popularity with guests to the park resulted in him taking part in over 2000 shows, over 12 years.
