Bishop's Stortford comedian Paddy Lennox staging Zoom gig featuring Hal Cruttenden, Simon Brodkin and Ria Lina
Four stand-ups are set to provide paying punters with some much-needed comic relief this Saturday (Mar 6).
For the past year, the coronavirus pandemic has brought a halt to Paddy Lennox’s Laughing Bishops Comedy Club in Bishop’s Stortford and its older, sister club in Great Dunmow, so he is staging a Zoom gig.
Married father-of-three Paddy, 53, who lives in Stortford, will be performing alongside Simon Brodkin, best known for his cheerful chav character Lee Nelson and high-profile pranks, several of which have led to his arrest.
Also on the bill are Hal Cruttenden, who has made multiple TV appearances including Mock the Week, Have I Got News for You and Live at the Apollo, and Ria Lina, a comedian, actress and writer with a PhD in viral bioinformatics.
A few selected people will be unmuted for the virtual front row to let the performers feel the love and laughter. These audience members are asked to ensure there is no background noise that could interfere with the proceedings.
Tickets are £10. There is an option to add a £3 donation to support the comics, who have been badly hit by the Covid-19 crisis. See the Laughing Bishops website for more information.
The gig starts at 8pm. Audience members will be sent their Zoom links and passwords between 6.30pm and 7.30pm on Saturday, the day of the virtual show.
If you have any issues or do not receive your login details by 7.40pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
