McNeil & Pamphilon – Famous Comedians | UK
When Steve McNeil and Sam Pamphilon first laid eyes on each other, there was an instant comedy spark. Three years later and they have moved out of Sam’s bedsit in Hackney and onto shoddily constructed pub stages in London and beyond to share their gift with the world.
In 2012, a year in which we had so much to be proud of as Brits, Sam & Steve could look back fondly and remember three critically acclaimed sell-out Edinburgh shows, a nod from the Amused Moose Awards and a host of industry fans. Their 2012 show was the most explosive yet and received a gaggle of lovely 4* reviews.
Most recently you may have seen them both on BBC 1 in Richard Hammonds Secret Service. They has also appeared on series 2 of BBC Radio 4s Sketchorama, and headed up to Edinburgh for a few special shows, following their appearance at the Latitude Festival.
The boys are directed by Matt Holt, who directed on all three series of ITVs Comedy Cuts, the second series of BBCs sitcom, Lunch Monkeys, Brendon Burns 2007 comedy-winning show, and Idiots Of Ants, the 2009 Edinburgh Comedy Award-nominated sketch show.
McNeil & Pamphilon are available to hire for events as stand-up comedians. Contraband works in association with their direct representative.
