Martin Coyote (Closing Act)
For eight years Martin Coyote has been a pivotal member of the Comedy Store’s flagship topical show, The Cutting Edge. He is a prolific writer of challenging and thought provoking gags.
Exuding a warmth and laddish charm, he generates an equally glowing response from his audiences. They genuinely like him. Even the most hardened hecklers seek his approval.
His talents are diverse. Equally at home with the mainstay circuit gigs as with the major comedy venues, on television or on radio, Coyote is a force to be reckoned with. Credits include. ’Bring Me The Head Of Light Entertainment.’ (Channel Five) ’Loose Talk’ (Radio One) ’Comedy Network’ (Radio One) ’The Treatment’ (Radio Five Live). He also supported Lee Hurst on his three highly successful UK tours.
’Criminally underrated. A truly great writer and performer.’ Time Out
’Great topical one-liners. Will make you laugh a lot.’ Radio Five Live
’Unhinged, quick witted, slightly sinister. But always worth going to see.’ London Evening Standard
’Coyote is a safe pair of hands, guaranteed to deliver a quality set.’ www.chortle.co.uk
Paddy Lennox (Opening Act)
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. "Simply a scream" Belfast Telegraph.
Barrie Hall (Compere)
Sophisticated Geordie comedian, Barrie Hall is one of the performers in new Channel 4 comedy sketch series Experimental. He also appears in BBC 1’s new entertainment show, Spy TV hosted by Ian Wright.Barrie performs stand up comedy regularly all around the country. Equally at home performing extended sets or as compere, he performed at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe in his own sell-out stand up show.
’Hall’s performance is a tour de force’ Time Out
’Bladder-aching hilarity, a gem amongst the crud’ City Life
’Achingly funny and hilariously offbeat’ The List
’Highly entertaining stand up’ Metro
’Comic fantasy with a dark tinge’ The Times
Lee Hume (New Act)
Another new act gets 10 minutes on stage to try and prove he has what it takes to make it as a stand up comedian.
On Saturday night, Kingsmeadow Live, our live music venue, presents another of our unsigned indie nights, featuring bands that support both AFC Wimbledon and FC United of Manchester.
