- he has star stamped through him like a stick of rock" Stage
are few more over-used phrases in showbiz than the words natural performer.
But turn to any
phrase book, check the definition of this term and - by all rights -
you should find the same entry every time - Craig Hill.
This man was born to be on stage - and now he's there, you won't want
him to leave. In three short years, Craig has established himself as
one of the most sought-after comics in Britain. His unique talents have
seen him support major names such as Ross Noble and Johnny Vegas, while
he is a regular headliner in his own right in clubs throughout the UK,
Ireland and as far afield as Brussels and New York.
Taking a cheeky swipe at modern pop-cultural icons, Craig has been described
as "the Hello magazine of topical comedy" Edinburgh Evening
News. Blessed with a keen comic's eye, a musical ear and an outstanding
voice, Craig combines these gifts to maximum effect. A gifted mimic
with a difference, he invites audiences into his camp musical melting
pot, where Shirley Bassey sings The Smiths, Ronan Keating is the bastard
love child of Jim Diamond and Julie Andrews performs an unforgettable
rendition of "Anarchy In The UK". It is no surprise that critics
have called this "the best musical comedy since Bill Bailey"
With his natural audience rapport and happy-go-lucky nature, Craig makes
a perfect host to any comedy evening. A resident compère at The
Stand comedy clubs in both Edinburgh and Glasgow, his sparkling, contagious
personality has won him an army of loyal fans. Craig also hosted the
BBC coverage of T in the Park in 2001, has been the subject of C4's
"Edinburgh or Bust", is regularly heard on Radio Scotland's
"Fred MacAulay Show" and "Velvet Cabaret" and has
appeared in two consecutive sell-out solo shows on the Edinburgh Fringe.
A natural star who burns so very brightly. Catch Craig Hill now before
he goes supernova.
