In the evenings, Joe works as a man of mirth, trading his surreal observations for laughter, performing in some of the most prestigious and reputable comedy clubs in and around London and across the UK. Recently he has completed presenting a UK Tour of Brainiac Live after appearing in all 6 series of the award winning hit TV show Brainiac: Science Abuse (Sky One) which saw him take part in live and highly dangerous scientific experiments.
Opening Comedian – Paddy Lennox
“…simply a scream” The Telegraph
Irish comedian and actor Paddy Lennox first burst on to stage as a Stand-Up in 2001 only to be interrupted with a couple of comedies at the Shakespeare Globe Theatre and filming in far off lands, before returning to his new found passion. An engaging and instantly likeable comic, Paddy combines topical material with observational routines. Paddy’s had a great start to 2008, he’s been working the corporate scene including gigs for the BBC, ITV and Jysk (the new Ikea!), and he’s also featured on Sky Poker and Talk sport Radio. But the big one for him this year was the Edinburgh Festival as part of the Bound & Gagged AAA Show alongside Maff Brown and Tom Crane at the Pleasance Courtyard. When not gigging all over the UK, Paddy finds ‘carpentry’ helps him to unwind.
Headline Comedian – Peter Francis
“A darkly, deliciously cheeky catalogue of events based on life’s fortunes and misfortunes. Any similarity to actual persons or events whether made-up or real is definitely intentional.” Chortle
In 2001 Special P (Peter Frederick) embarked on a journey, He had a god given gift for making people laugh and he knew from within he was destined to become a comic/comedian actor. He began working on his goal part time, for two years he learnt about comedy, watched other artist perform and he also used stage time to fulfill his aim. He became quickly recognized. During his first two years as a comic, he appeared on Channel fours “so you think you are funny”; he was a finalist in the Wilkinson sword competition and achieved a BECA award for best newcomer.
