From March–November 2004 Steve, Paddy McGuinness, Archie Kelly and Janice Connolly toured a live stand-up show "Jumping on the Bandwagon" in reference to the success of Peter Kay's Phoenix Nights. The final show of the tour and the last time he did stand-up was at the Winter Gardens, Blackpool. Edge is most famous for playing Alan, one half of double-act Les Alanos with Les played by Toby Foster in That Peter Kay Thing, Peter Kay's Phoenix Nights and Max and Paddy's Road To Nowhere. He reprised the role in 2015 for Phoenix Nights LIVE where the cast performed 16 shows at Manchester Arena and raised £5 million for Comic Relief.

Edge was a programme associate/writer on 8 out of 10 Cats from 2007 to 2011.

He was script editor for the BBC2 comedy "The Cup" in which he also starred as the lead, Terry McConnell.

In 2009 he wrote the BBC1 show Walk on the Wild Side along with Jason Manford as well as adding the voices to the show, most notably the Marmot repeatedly shouting "Alan".

In 2009 he wrote and narrated BBC3's "Almost Famous III" and returned in 2010 with the much revered sequel "Almost Famous IV".

In 2002 he starred in a series of improvised adverts directed by Graham Linehan, for the now defunct ITV Sport Channel.

He starred as a hapless undertaker in the Elbow promo for the song "Not a Job"

Edge is the creator and co-writer of the series Starlings on Sky1 along with Matt King.

He regularly joins Jason Manford on Manford's Sunday morning radio show on Absolute Radio.

Edge has lived in Didsbury, a suburb of Manchester, since 1995 and revealed on Soccer AM that he is a Wolverhampton Wanderers season ticket holder who sits in the Stan Cullis Stand. He was married in August 2014, with friend and colleague Jason Manford as best man.[citation needed] He is godfather to Manford's twin daughters.
