“Comedy the way it should be: a laugh-a-minute which leaves the audience wishing the show was just a little bit longer … gentle Irish lilt belies a mischievous sense of humour.” **** Fest

An engaging and instantly likeable comic, Paddy combines topical material with observational routines.

Paddy’s lately been working the corporate scene including gigs for the BBC, ITV, Investec and Jysk, and he’s also featured on The Blame Game, (BBC) Sky Poker and Talksport Radio.
