Laughing Bishops Comedy Club
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
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).

Decidedly dark and deliciously different – a one way ticket to a world you never knew existed. Despite being 'unique', she's warm and chatty and has built a cult following for her brand of confessional comedy. 'Outstanding comic, laughs just keep on coming' (Channel 4).

Scottish stand up comedian based in London, Leo Kearse started his comedy career in 2009. He is one of a new wave of British acts who draw on the heritage of US acts such as Chris Rock, Sam Kinison and Bill Burr to deliver powerful, rhetorical, personal comedy taking in big issues. In 2015 he won the UK Pun Championships but he is best known on the circuit for his hilarious stories about being Scottish, dating, buying a train ticket and Thai toilets! 'Kearse is seriously good. Quick, funny, smart and to the point... hilarious' (The Scotsman).
