Joe Shire is a rising star. A highly trained actor with compelling stage and screen presence, he’s also a dynamic live presenter. He bounds adeptly from tarantinoesque drama to charismatic warmth.
Joe has a dramatically deep, rich voice and is as skilled in the studio as on stage or set.
Reviews this winter:
in ‘The Morpeth Carol’ at Bristol Old Vic… “There’s a Santa (Joe Shire) with an epigrammatic touch of Satan, a cosmic jobsworth with a dangerous edge, a shotgun and a sonorous voice of darkest chocolate. Crash-landing on earth like a fallen angel, Shire’s Santa makes a bleak midwinter up North feel as alien and inhospitable as infinite space ” (Venue)
in ‘Seasoned’ at the Tobacco Factory… “Joe Shire mixes a captivating, can’t-look-away onstage demeanour with lithe athleticism” (Remote Goat)
in ‘Headlines’ “Out of the fury of one attempting to contain the looting & the other seizing opportunity to improve someone’s life, comes humour & towering action from Joe Shire ” (Remote Goat)
Screen credits include ‘Frail’ and ‘The Gap’, ‘Never Give You Up’ (music video) and a Samsung advert (see screenshot below). Further stage credits include Show of Strength, Ankur Productions, Hampstead Theatre, Myrtle and Theatre West.
