Your acts for the evening...
With an exquisite grasp of the grotesque, Chris Lynam has been feverishly subverting the traditions of the stand-up for more than thirty years. His reputation for unpredictable comic mayhem has propelled him to the four corners of the globe, and viewers and audience attendees here and throughout the world have been aghast and agog at his televised antics and stage performances.
“The funniest man on the planet.” – EDDIE IZZARD
“Surreal unhinged quality which makes for comic greatness.”- THE GUARDIAN
“Repeatedly impressive, with creative ideas brilliantly executed, including some stand-out set pieces that hilariously flip expectations on their head.” - CHORTLE
Britain's Got Talent Finalist & Golden Buzzer winner!!!
