Steve Womack is now firmly established as one of the country’s finest entertainers, the bulk of his work being in the corporate market. His initial forays into the world of entertainment took him into every kind of venue that would have him.
He sang and played guitar throughout Europe and Scandinavia; he played in pubs, clubs, bars, cafes, street corners and even a stint in a massage parlour (the less said about that the better).
His songbook expanded at an alarming rate resulting in several marathon performances going on into the early hours with crowd after crowd clamouring for more. Although blessed with a clear and incisive wit, comedy was not yet featuring in his stage act. This development was to come later via his written efforts for other comedians. When asked by the manager of a local BBC radio station if he was able to write humourous topical songs for insertion into a current events programme,
As it turned out, he could. The BBC alone have since commissioned and broadcast over 150 of his topical songs on TV programmes such as ‘That’s Life’, ‘The Late, Late Breakfast Show’, ‘Swap Shop’, ‘My Show’, ‘Look North’, ‘Pebble Mill at One’, plus loads of radio shows both BBC and Independent.
The newly discovered ability to turn mundane into the hilarious was soon to stretch itself to verbal material which would eventually find its way on to the screen and out of the mouths of many established comedy stars. The next step was both predictable and inevitable. Steve woke up one morning to find he was a comedian.
In 1988 he was voted winning comedian in Central TV’s New Faces Grand Final.
This was followed by a 13 week series of ”Corrigan and Womack’ (teaming up with London Comedienne, Bernadine Corrigan) on Sky TV and the first series of ‘A Small Portion of Womack’ for BBC Radio 2. His reputation as a safe bet on the corporate scene began to spread. His humour is sharp and fresh, without being the slightest bit bland unlikely to offend.
