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 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 heâ€™s also featured on Sky Poker and Talksport Radio. But the big one for him this year was the Edinburgh Festival as part of the Bound & Gagged AAA Show along side Maff Brown and Tom Craine at the Pleasance Courtyard.
As an actor Paddy has already clocked up a pretty impressive list of theatre, film and TV credits. Â Last Christmas he played Stanley in the Ray Cooney farce, â€œRUN FOR YOUR WIFEâ€ with Matthew Cottle (Game On) at The Mill at Sonning. He recently played the lead in the farce ‘Perfect Wedding’ at Â Mill. “beautifully played and surprisingly moving” The Stage.

He’s also an excellent voice-over artist and has voiced numerous commercials in the UK and Ireland.
When not gigging all over the UK, Paddy finds ‘carpentry’ helps him to unwind.
â€œ…simply a scream.â€ The Telegraph
**** â€œcomedy 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.â€ Â 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.
**** Extremely funny material. Iâ€™m sure this guy has a great future.one4review.com
