Adam Bloom, Glenn Wool, Diane Spencer, Justin Panks, Laura Smyth and Paddy Lennox among stand-ups at Great Dunmow and Bishop's Stortford comedy nights
Paddy Lennox is serving up a double dose of laughs as Great Dunmow Comedy Club and the Laughing Bishops open their doors on successive nights.
He hosts an evening of hilarity at Dunmow's Foakes Hall on Friday April 14 when Adam Bloom, Glenn Wool and Diane Spencer take to the stage.
And the resident MC will welcome Wool, Justin Panks and Laura Smyth to the Water Lane United Reformed Church Hall in Bishop's Stortford on Saturday April 15.
Whirlwind performer Bloom has appeared at the Edinburgh Festival for many years and won a Time Out Comedy Award for Best Stand-up in 1998.
He has appeared on television shows including Mock the Week, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Russell Howard's Good News and The Young Person's Guide to Becoming a Rockstar.
Bloom also wrote and starred in BBC Radio 4's The Problem with Adam Bloom, which ran for three series between 2003 and 2005.
Canadian stand-up Wool began his comedy career in his hometown of Vancouver in 1995. He moved to London in 1998 and quickly became one of the rising stars of the London and international comedy circuit.
His TV credits include John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show as well as appearances on The Green Room with Paul Provenza, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Russell Howard's Good News.
Award-winning Spencer enjoys nothing more than delighting audiences with her cheeky, dark and delightfully filthy humour.
With 36,000 subscribers on YouTube and more than six million views, her hilarious material is appealing to people worldwide.
Spencer draws inspiration from her own life and social concerns and, in total, has written eight critically-acclaimed stand-up shows that are available to watch online.
With a skewed observational eye and the ability to approach seemingly ordinary subjects from extraordinary angles, Panks strikes the perfect balance between the relatable and the outrageous.
His tales of relationships, parenthood and life in general are raw, honest and, above all, funny.
East Londoner Smyth is a relative newcomer to the comedy circuit having started out in spring 2019.
The mother-of-three's comedy is autobiographical and observational as she explores her place in the stupid world.
Smyth has already been a winner at The Funny Women Awards, signed with a top agent and performed at clubs across the country.
Tickets for both the Dunmow and Stortford nights are priced at £17. Doors open at 7.30pm for 8.30pm. There will be a full bar and hot food will be available. Visit www.jokepit.com/comedy-by/paddy-lennox to book.
