Featuring

Paddy Lennox

Paddy Lennox appearing at this event

Paddy is a popular Irish Stand-up and has been tour support for Rhod Gilbert, Lucy Porter and Micky Flanagan. He hosts The Laughing Bishops Comedy Club in Bishop's Stortford and The Great Dunmow Comedy Club in... er... Great Dunmow. Both are sell-out shows mainly due to all the acts being his friends from The London Comedy Store. He started Stand-Up in December 2001 only to be interrupted with a couple of comedies at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and a couple of surreal commercials in far off lands, before returning to his new found passion. A naturally funny, warm comic who plays all the big (and small) clubs in the UK. He has also gigged in South Africa, Germany, Ireland, Croatia, Estonia, Malta, and lil' ol' Slovenia. '... simply a scream' (The Daily Telegraph) '... comedy the way it should be: a laugh-a-minute which leaves the audience wishing the show was just a little bit longer... gentle Irish lilt belies a mischievous sense of humour' (Fest). 'Excellent stand-up, Paddy Lennox, is laid-back and charismatic. Vastly entertaining. This show proves that the AAA stand-up comedians have great things ahead of them' (Three Weeks).

Troy Hawke

Troy Hawke appearing at this event

Troy is a matinee idol born in the wrong era. Homeschooled by his elderly mother for the most part of his life, he has recently emerged blinking into a modern day dystopian present with the naivety of a newborn fawn. 'Undeniably funny' (Chortle.co.uk). 'Intelligent and effective satire ... a character of real comic integrity' **** (BroadwayBaby.com).

Paul F Taylor

Paul F Taylor appearing at this event

Paul F Taylor is a one of a kind comedian. An instantly watchable performer, whilst onstage he exhibits a lost playful vulnerability. This coupled with his hilarious and surreal observations never fails to leave audiences crying with laughter, gasping for air and wondering "What the F?... It's Paul F. Taylor!". Paul is a superb writer with a keen eye for the absurd in everyday life, he creates wickedly funny and astute observational comedy which is totally captivating and utterly hilarious. Certainly one for the future! Paul was one half of the double act, Helm & Taylor with Nick Helm. He is also half of the double act Short & Curly (with Rebecca Shorrocks). Paul has achieved notable success as a screen writer and actor. Milk! that he co-wrote and starred in, was the ShortCom Jury Select Winner 2015, and was in the official selection in LOCO, Nashville, LOL, Shortwaves, Glasgow and London Short Film festivals. It has also won the Dead Short Film Competition at Leeds International Film Festival 2015. Paul took home the title of the NATY New Act Of The Year in 2013. Battlecock! that he also co-wrote and starred in, made it into the official selection at the BFI London Film Festival 2013. 'Beautifully crafted one liners...astute observational comedy' (GQ Magazine)
