Born and bred Londoner, Steve McCann, is rapidly establishing a name on the London comedy circuit. As well as being founder and MC of East End comedy show, 'Memoirs of a Geezer' that has recently hosted Tony Law as headliner, Steve has headlined at Camden Fringe, and ‘Beat the Blackout’ at ‘Up the Creek’ in Greenwich.
Steve combines observational and political humour as well as talking about his career in The City including 2 years living and working in New York as well as growing up in London with Glaswegian and Irish family prior to him calming it down and turning to stand up.
Steve is a contributor to Shoreditch and Hoxton Radio, appeared on FAN TV and Fubar Radio talking football and he will make his debut at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2017.
"Sharp as a tack, in both jokes and dress sense. Steve McCann is ‘The Beatles’ of comedy". -Ethan Lawrence, Bad Education BBC3.
“Steve McCann brings a great energy to the room with varied material and very likeable on-stage character. One to watch”. -Frank Cassidy, Touching Cloth at The Water Poet.
“"Acerbic, self-deprecating and above all hilarious, Steve McCann is a rising star on the comedy circuit"”, - Sam Butler, Jollies at the George.
Lenny has been doing stand up all over the country since September 2010. He is often found on stage at Up The Creek, Jongleurs and Monkey Business, and is performing at Highlights in Camden, July 2013.
Lenny is down to earth and loveable with a working class, cockney style ‘geezer’ persona. He has a technical and tight style and clever twists and turns ensure the crowd enjoys his material. He regularly participates in an improv group run by David Shore from Chicago’s Second City and likes to involve this element in his shows.
Debuting at Up the Creek, he was invited back 2 days later to perform at the Best of Newcomers night.
He has also won 6 mini comedy competitions and in May 2012 Lenny was named runner up in the national Comic Idol competition, run by Jongleurs and The Sun.
Lenny has been featured in Loaded magazine and on The Sun’s website for his comedy antics.
