Coastal Comedy offers a great chance to see a famous face close up and personal in an intimate setting, with the very best stand-up comics on the circuit, and are winners of the Gold Night Time Award as part of the prestigious BH Star Awards 2019.
Closing the show is the incredible John Lynn who first caught the stand-up bug after a visit to a comedy club in Dublin and quickly discovered that making a clown out of himself wasn’t all that bad. He instantly made a splash in his native Ireland with his laid-back delivery and natural stage presence and within eight months of his first gig, appeared on TV in RTE’s The Liffey Laugh; an unheard of feat for a newcomer.
He later appeared in BBC’s One Night Stand, continuing to build his reputation as a promising newcomer. Encouraged by these early achievements, John took the plunge and decided to give-up his day job as a secondary school teacher.
He is now based in London and is busy working his way up the stand-up ladder, earning his stripes at all the major comedy clubs across the UK. He misses the children who abused him each and every day of his teaching career…sometimes.
“THE RISING STAR OF IRISH COMEDY” Sunday Times
“ABSOLUTELY COMPELLING…AN EASY DELIVERY THAT LIKE THE LATE, GREAT DAVE ALLEN, CAN EXPLODE WITH ANGRY EYEBALL POPPING INTENSITY. HUGELY ENTERTAINING…SHADES OF DYLAN MORAN, BUT STILL COMPLETELY JOHN LYNN” Chortle
“CRACKING COMEDY. HAS A FINGER ON THE JITTERY PULSE OF OUR CASH STRAPPED AGE, WELL WORTH CATCHING” Daily Telegraph
John is supported on the night by Mike Cox, winner of the prestigious Fosters South Coast Comedian of the Year Award. Mike’s sharp wit and everyday cynicism have made him one to watch on the comedy circuit in recent years.
Also appearing on the night is Rob Mulholland who fell into comedy after finding a flyer for a local festival on the ground. In the years since, he has performed all over the UK and overseas and won many comedy competitions.
