"Wonderful - he has star stamped through him like a stick of rock" Stage
There 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" Scotsman.
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.
