Hello. I’m Silky.
I’m a comedian and musician. I will make you laugh out of it.
In my head, I am popular with all age groups. In my head. In actual fact, between the family shows and the adult stand-up, there is little middle ground amongst the late teens/early twenties, so I am unlikely to go viral because of the Urban Beardsmen, and feel secretly pleased by that.
I have not been on Russell Howard’s Good News, or indeed anything on BBC3. I have some friends on Facebook, some followers on twitter, and even some subscribers to my youtube channel, but I’ve also got nearly forty fountain pens, and they’re likely to outlast all social media. My money’s on the quill.

★★★★★ “Silky opens himself up to his audience with an hour of often touching, and always funny stand-up. His fluent and intelligent storytelling is impressive, and carries with it a genuine sense of character. This is a performer whose genuine charm captures his crowd. I urge you to go and see it for yourself.” Three Weeks
