Comedic coach driver ‘a hit’ with passengers

A National Express coach driver is fast becoming an online sensation after videos of him giving comedy announcements on board have proved a hit with passengers.

Steve Small works for Fareham-based Lucketts Travel and regularly drives services that the company runs on behalf of National Express.

Oliver Ing from Portsmouth shared a video of Steve on Twitter, tweeting: “This is the best welcome to @nationalexpress I’ve ever had.

“We just collected some French speaking passengers. Steve wrote out everything he said in this video into a translate app and played it to them off his phone. This has made my day.”

Steve’s repertoire includes voices of X Factor announcer Peter Dixon and comedian Matt Berry.

The 38-year-old regularly finds videos of himself online after delighted customers have posted them and praised his hilarious announcements.

Steve says: “It’s really nice to make people smile. We have safety announcements on a CD, but I wanted to make it more interesting so decided to do it myself, weaving in some funny voices and jokes. It’s good fun. Everyone has a laugh.”
