Mitch Benn : Chesham Comedy

Headline Act - MITCH BENN

Headliner MITCH BENN is not only one of the most sought-after acts on the comedy circuit but is widely acknowledged as one of the best writer/performers of comic songs in the country. He is a regular guest on "The One Show" (BBC1), "The Now Show" (BBC Radio 4) and "It's Been a Bad Week" (BBC Radio 2). Mitch began his comedy career in Edinburgh in 1994 and moved to London in 1996, quickly establishing himself as a comedy club headliner and has since toured extensively around the world. In 1995 Mitch won the Best New Comic award at the Glastonbury Festival and has played there every year since. In 2003 he formed the band "Mitch Benn & The Distractions" and completed a successful national UK tour the following year to coincide with the release of their album "Too Late To Cancel". In 1998 he won the "Mercury Comedian of the Year" prize. Although he may be more used to playing the bigger comedy clubs in the country, it's a real pleasure to welcome Mitch back to Chesham for the second time.

"His songs are brilliantly written & powerfully performed" - Evening Standard
Jeremy O'Donnell : Chesham Comedy Club


Comedian, writer and presenter JEREMY O'DONNELL writes for a number of television and radio shows in addition to regular stand up work. Both nationally and internationally, Jeremy's live work includes appearances at high profile comedy venues including Jongleurs and the Comedy Cafe, with demand for his talents taking him as far afield as Bahrain, Paris and Zurich. Jeremy skilfully mixes sharp one-liners with friendly story-telling and sparkling off-the-cuff wit, deservedly building himself a reputation for reliably strong performances. A master at tailoring his act for regular corporate shows too, his cheeky smile and friendly nature have endeared him to audiences all over Britain.

"Best act of the night by far. Cutting edge funny" - Daily Mirror
Laura Lexx : Chesham Comedy Club

Middle Act - LAURA LEXX

Sweet-natured Somerset girl Laura Lexx is a uniquely gleeful performer who indulges her audience with unrelenting childish attention. After a whirlwind introduction to the London comedy scene which saw her reach the finals of both the Chortle and Paramount student competitions in her first year, Lexx has been building on her early success with gig dates across London and the UK. She tells us she’s now working as a plumber, which we find hard to believe, but from a girl who performs in bare feet, I’m sure anything is possible! Laura is a graduate of the University of Kent and also has an extensive theatrical repertoire, taking credit as the writer and director of two full length plays. As an up-and-coming name in female stand-up, she has everything to play for and definitely qualifies as one to look out for on the scene.

"An assured stage presence, and very funny indeed" - Lonestar Comedy
Paul F Taylor : Chesham Comedy Club


MC for the night, PAUL F TAYLOR is one of a kind. His last appearance on our stage was back in November 2008, so we thought it was about time he came back! An instantly enjoyable performer, Paul’s beautifully crafted one liners and off-beat gags will keep you grinning all night. Taylor is a superb writer with a keen eye for the absurd in everyday life which helps him create wickedly funny and astute observational comedy. His surreal observations never fail to leave audiences crying with laughter, gasping for air and wondering "What the F?... It's Paul F. Taylor!".
