99 Club Leicester Square: Imran Yusuf, Brett Goldstein, Paddy Lennox, Holly Walsh
Comedy night featuring top acts from the national circuit. Visit www.99clubcomedy.com for further information.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Comedian who was a 2008 Hackney Empire finalist renowned for his super-high energy performance. Imran has a unique voice stamping his mark for positive, uplifting comedy at every turn.
Born in Mombasa, Kenya and raised in the UK with a brief stint at school in the USA, Imran has also travelled much of the world including Israel/Palestine, Jordan and Saudi Arabia during the Lebanon Crisis in 2006. His work has been inspired by this rich multicultural background, giving him a youthful, energetic and highly original voice that embodies the multi-cultural wealth that exists in modern Britain.
He seamlessly switches between styles with graceful fluidity, repeatedly delivering heavy-weight punch lines with enormous panache. His seemingly light-hearted satire is mixed with hard-hitting topical commentary on contemporary issues that culminate into a tour de force of comedy offering an all-embracing sentiment in his trademark styling
'Imran Yusuf's show heralds the birth of a new comedy star. Intelligent, thought-provoking and laugh out loud funny, it's a glorious debut' (Time Out).

Paddy has been tour support for Rhod Gilbert, Lucy Porter and Micky Flanagan.
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).

Guildford's own Holly Walsh has many a string to her bow, being a finalist in 2006's So You Think You're Funny? and Funny Women contests, as well as presenting for CBBC. A brilliant purveyor of one-line gags and witty puns.

'She peppers her set with callbacks and clever asides and has easy charm' (The Independent)
'Holly Walsh really impressed... excellent sets and endeared herself through
some assured banter with crowds who really took to her' (British Comedy Guide)
'A talent for smart comic writing and the ability to keep an audience rapt' (The Observer)
