Pun Man 2: Girls Just Wanna Hear Puns

Edinburgh Fringe - Pun Man 2: Girls Just Wanna Hear Puns

UK Pun Champion Leo Kearse, aka Pun-Man, returns with another hour of ridiculous puns and hilarious stories! The Edinburgh show with the most jokes! What's the worst that could hear-pun? ‘In Iran everyone's scared of spiders, but in Iraq no phobia’ is bad, but there's one about a German sausage that's wurst. ‘A giant of the art’ (Chortle.co.uk). ‘Seriously good. Quick, funny, smart... hilarious’ (Scotsman). ‘Such energy and aplomb that the audience is left powerless to resist... one of the most enjoyable shows of the Fringe’ **** (ThreeWeeks). ‘Very funny’ **** (List).

Hate 'n' Live

Edinburgh Fringe - Hate 'n' Live

The smash-hit show returns for a third year, with top TV comedians – aka the Gladi-Haters – improvising rants on topics suggested by the audience. By turns raucous and surreal, this show has the audience on the edge of their seat as the comedians try to walk the line. Want to see Darius Davies, ***** (BroadwayBaby.com), Leo Kearse, 'seriously funny' (Scotsman), and guests hate on self-service checkouts? Scottish food? Or Jeremy Corbyn? It's up to you! ‘A great idea for a show, brutally funny... absolutely brilliant!’ (Scotsman). Warning: not for the easily offended!

4-28th August at Midnight

Maggie's Chamber in the Three Sisters, Cowgate EH1 1JS

STAND-UP COMEDY SHOWREEL

I perform all over the UK and abroad for clubs including Jongleurs, Just The Tonic, Backyard Club, Covent Garden Comedy, Top Secret, Crack Comedy and Actz Entertainment.

I've toured Adelaide, Melbourne and Singapore festivals. 

I'm the 2015 UK Pun Champion (but I don't do puns in my club set!).

PUN-MAN

This is Pun-Man opening the show and warming up the crowd as MC at Pun Run, Dec 2014.

Pun Man is ideal for events such as corporates and parties as the act is improvised and tailored to the event (bespoke puns are written in advance, eg to suit the industry or birthday boy/girl). The act is engaging and accessible to people with short attention spans and audiences who aren't necessarily comedy fans. 

Pun-Man's first show "Pun-Man's Pun Party" was a sellout at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2015 and Leicester Comedy Festival in 2016. His latest show "Girls Just Wanna Hear Puns" is currently packing them in at the Edinburgh Fringe.

HATE 'N' LIVE

I'm the co-creator of (and regular performer in) the smash hit show Hate 'n' Live, which features comedians "hating on" topics suggested by the audience and pulled out of a hat at random.

I have experience of writing/acting short commissions and commercials. I'm represented by MLA Talent
