Comedian, Actor & Self Styled Northern Scamp Paddy Young Brings His Hungry, Horny & Scared Show To Komedia Brighton

Following sold-out shows at the 2023 Fringe, Northern scamp Paddy Young's debut UK tour - which brings him to Komedia Brighton in March - mixes his charismatic, cult leader vibe with the inevitable reality that underneath it all he is hungry, horny and scared (aren't we all?). 

Upon leaving a nightmare flatshare to move back in with his parents, Paddy is confronted with a spectacle that disturbingly resembles himself: Thor, a wanking walrus, stranded on Scarborough beach (it's real, look it up). 

Join Paddy as he asks the hard-hitting questions: is everyone in his generation going to die still living in a flatshare? If Hitler was on drugs, how bad was his comedown? And what happens to TikTok families after their 15 minutes of fame? 

Let's face it, Paddy is in the gutter, but he's looking down on all of you.

Paddy is a comedian and actor, who is quickly becoming one of comedy's fastest rising stars, having appeared on Channel 4, ITV2, Sky and Stewart Lee's recommendation list. 

He makes daft videos that somehow have been viewed over 10 million times, occasionally teaming up with fellow comedians Horatio Gould and Ed Night, covering everything from King Charles at an afters, navigating housemate dynamics, to a posh actor in a Northern film.

Paddy regularly performs comedy across the UK, including shows at Machynlleth Comedy Festival, Cambridge Fringe and Brighton Fringe. 

Tickets for Paddy Young's show at Komedia Brighton on 28th March 2024, are on sale now and available at www.berksnest.com/paddy.
