Join urban poet Wisebowm as he takes you on a lyrical journey through his life struggles. Wisebowm is the comedy creation of British Stand-Up Comedian Steve Whiteley.
Having released numerous comedy rap videos on his YouTube channel, comedian Steve Whiteley wanted to find a vehicle to perform his lyrical prowess in a live environment. Enter the creation of urban poet Wisebowm. Following two consecutive years of sold-out 5 star Edinburgh Fringe Festival shows, ‘Wisebowm’ was broadcast to critical acclaim, as a BBC Radio 4 sitcom in August 2019.
‘The Struggle Is Real’ is Wisebowm’s debut mixtape release. Each track samples the work of classical composer Ludivico Einaudi and has been lovingly remixed, featuring Wisebowm’s often ludicrous and pompous lyrics. Subject matters include motivating creatives to start writing, the struggles of suffering from a bad back and a track dedicated to showing the world how grateful and blessed Wisebowm is for his ‘success’.
Steve’s comedy sketches and music videos have earned his Youtube channel a nomination for ‘Best Internet Programme’ at the British Comedy Awards and he has featured in numerous publications, including Buzzfeed, The Huffington Post, The Metro and more. Steve is represented by WME.
