Lea is considered to be one of only a handful of comedians that can glide effortlessly from “mainstream” to “alternative” environments. This is owed to his style of comedy, which is based on traditional Northern humour with a more modern approach. With plenty of up to date material, stories and observations, but if you like the old style gags he is happy to oblige which ensures everyone’s taste is catered for. His unique act appeals to all demographics, from younger to older audiences, showing off his true versatility in the world of comedy.
His versatile style ensures he’s in demand for a wide variety of functions and events – including Corporate, Sporting Clubs, Cabaret, Awards Nights, Charities and Fundraising or providing that “bit extra” for your special day whether it’s a wedding, birthday party or a retirement.
Over the years Lea has worked alongside many famous names including, Sir Alan Sugar, Sir Michael Parkinson, Sir Steve Redgrave, Omid Djalili, Mike Tyson, Jon Culshaw, Jeff Stelling, Barry Cryer, Ian Wright – to name but a few.
