A history of Stomp
The combination of music, dancing and comedy that became Stomp can be traced to Brighton in the 1980s.
After performing as street band Pookiesnackenburger throughout the decade, Steve McNicholas and Luke Creswell formed Stomp in 1991.
That year they won they performed at the Edinburgh Festival and won the “Best of the Fringe” award.
Between 1991 and 1994 Stomp played to capacity audiences around the world, before taking on permanent residencies on London’s West End and New York’s Broadway.
The American cast have performed at events ranging from the Oscars to President Bill Clinton’s Millennium celebrations at the Lincoln Memorial.
The show has also received the ultimate pop culture nod, by being parodied on an episode of The Simpsons.
