Steve Royle

Steve Royle is often referred to as the "eye candy" of BBC Radio Lancashire. As well as stunning good looks Steve has a marvellous sense of humour, as that last sentence proves.

He is probably the only juggler to successfully transfer his talents onto the radio which now makes him a treat for both cochlea and cornea alike.

Despite being a mere 40 years old the gorgeous Steve has a wealth of experience behind him. For many years he was better known as "Mad Edgar" the court jester at Camelot Theme Park where he performed his "Crazy Juggling Shows". Some may even recognise him as the "naff" juggler at the end of episode three of "Phoenix Nights". He also appeared in front of the cameras in "Max and Padddy's Road To Nowhere", "Magnolia", "That's Entertainment" and "Peter Kay's Britain's Got The Pop Factor" and behind the cameras as warm-up man for "Question of Sport", "The Price is Right", "Mastermind" and many more.

In 2004 he was voted Entertainer of the Year at the inaugural Red Rose Awards, and won a Bronze Gillard Award in 2007 although he was unable to attend the ceremony has his wife chose that day to go into labour with their third child.

He is a regular at the Comedy Store and other alternative venues, has toured with Dave Spikey on two national tours and performed at The Royal Variety Show in London in 2007.

Steve is also co-founder of the award-winning Slaughterhouse-live character comedy troupe.
