PizzaExpress Live (Holborn)

PizzaExpress Live is very proud to launch a new series of stand-up comedy shows in our Holborn venue - tonight from established promoters, Laughing Boy. Performers are drawn from the very best UK club comedians - many of whom are award-winners. Each night will feature three great performers. Whether you've come to see someone in particular or are just curious to see a comedy show, every one of the comedians we are presenting is hugely experienced and has sold out shows in their own right.

Line-up subject to change. Comedy Club is an unrivalled night of entertainment and features comedy sets from a group of leading comedians.

"Regularly featuring the cream of British stand-up talent, Laughing Boy is a great night out for any connoisseur of comedy"

The Guardian

Suzi Ruffell

Fresh from supporting some of the UK’s top comedians on their sold out tours including Channel 4’s Chatty Man, Alan Carr, star of The Last Leg, Josh Widdicombe and Scotland’s finest, Kevin Bridges, Suzi Ruffell, is currently on the road with her hotly anticipated second show Social Chameleon. In it the ‘stand-up gem’ (The Guardian) questions why she spent twenty-seven years trying to make anyone and everyone like her. Turns outs it takes a fat bully from Swansea, a too-honest mother and searching a Parisian graveyard for someone she has never heard of to give up trying and just be herself and yes we are all hoping she hasn’t turned out to be a dickhead.

"Suzi’s great. A lovely stage persona, hugely likable and definitely one to watch!" Time Out


Paul McCaffrey

Star of Impractical Jokers (BBC Three), Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC Three), Stand Up Central (Comedy Central), 50 Funniest (Channel 4) and The Dog Ate My Homework (CBBC). An accomplished radio presenter and guest, Paul has recently been heard on: talkSPORT, The Alternative Vote (Absolute), Rob Beckett’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Football (Absolute) and Russell Kane’s Whistlestop Tour (BBC Radio 2).
