John and Claire Lenahan: Loud & Louder
Prepare for loud and get ready for louder with some shouty thrown in for good measure. Volume, comedy and an incredible talent for magic are the three main things that run in the Lenahan family. You will be amazed as this fantastical, relatable (did we mention loud?) duo thrill your senses with a seamless, seam-bursting blend of Comedy, Magic, Escapology, Mind Reading, Cannibalism and Lion Taming (pending permission from London Zoo).
John Lenahan has been a stalwart of the UK stage and TV for over three decades. From Time-Out Street magician of the year in the 80’s he became a headliner on the London Comedy Circuit and compared more shows at the Leicester Square Comedy store than any other act. John has starred in four network TV shows including the cult late night classic Stuff the White Rabbit on the BBC as well as his true claim to fame as the voice of Talkie Toaster in Red Dwarf.
Magician in training Claire Lenahan burst onto the comedy circuit since 2015 and stole her uncle’s act until he found out about it. NATY’s finalist 2017 and Leicester Square New Comedian of The Year Semi-Finalist 2016, and Marvin Stutter’s pick of the Fringe 2015, she’s a rising star in the alternative comedy circuit. She aspires to one day play the talking drink dispenser in a period drama.
