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).

Named “the world’s most famous blagger” by The Daily Telegraph, the acclaimed character comedian and untameable prankster Simon Brodkin has hit the headlines multiple times for his high profile stunts, usually in the guise of alter egos Lee Nelson or Jason Bent. Simon is also the writer, star and creator of two series of BBC Three’s ratings smash Lee Nelson’s Well Good Show and sketch series Lee Nelson’s Well Funny People, introducing the nation to a plethora of brilliant, new characters. He also made the 90-min special Jason Bent’s World Cup’s Best Ever Goals, Ever! (BBC Three). Lee has appeared multiple times on BBC One’s Live At The Apollo, both as guest and host.

Andrew’s quintessentially Irish storytelling abilities and cheeky, friendly demeanor make him a natural observational stand up. A regular at the Edinburgh Festival and one of the most in demand acts on the UK & Irish comedy scene. The Cork native immediately gets audiences on-side with a likable, bewildered style described as 'impossible not to warm to' (Chortle). 'Utterly brilliant... going to be a huge star' (Time Out) 'Made his set look easy, left us wanting more' (The Stage) 'Hilarious and accessible with some really powerful thinking underneath' (The Skinny) 'Funnier than Ardal O' Hanlon with an abundance of charm and great stage presence' (City Life).

Described as the 'Leonard Cohen of comedy', Andrew Lawrence is the master of his game. As seen on BBC1's 'Michael Mcintyre's Roadshow' and Channel 4's 'Best of The Brighton Comedy Festival', Andrew is also a double 'If' comedy award nominee. '... a hard act to follow' (Chortle) 'Anyone who gives this spikily inventive performer the time of day will realise they're in the presence of an A-list talent' (The Guardian) 'Few people have caught the irritated, misanthropic mood of the moment better than this supreme misfit; the only wonder is that it's taking Lawrence so long to become a national institution' (The Daily Telegraph) 'Lawrence rips the cynical heart from his chest and wears it defiantly on his sleeve' (Metro) 'Powerful, sad, angry, true stuff' (The Scotsman) '... you owe it to yourself to see him' (The Daily Mirror) 'This show is a must see without a doubt' (Edinburgh Reporter).
