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).
