Si Deaves is a stand up comic hailing from the depths of Southend-on-Sea. Having realised just how odd his life and thought patterns so regularly are, Si decided to turn to comedy in early 2014 and use it to question everything from people's misunderstanding of primary school level grammar, to why Goldilocks was so cruel, all the while bemused and amused by his own fears and neuroses. His dry and acerbic wit, love for improvising and playing around on stage and general easy going manner make him instantly likeable.
Having started stand up in March 2014, Si has quickly become a strong act, having found his voice very early on and has gigged relentlessly all over England to further improve upon that. He works hard to be a very prolific writer and in this short space of time has already put together his debut hour long show, ready for Edinburgh 2017, which has already been very well received in it's work in progress forms when he performed it at The Hastings Fringe as a solo show and as half of a two hander at The Brighton Fringe.
