Paul Kerensa is part of the team behind award-winning TV programmes such as ‘Miranda’ and ‘Not Going Out’ and his stand-up has featured in the Edinburgh Fringe and Montreal Comedy Festival.

He will be entertaining his audience at West End Impact on Saturday, July 15 at 7.30pm, with all profits going to the charity’s work in Morecambe and Heysham.

Kerensa is one of a growing group of so-called ‘clean’ comedians, meaning his content is free of swearing and suitable for a wide audience.

A winner of the ITV Take the Mike award, he has been performing in comedy clubs, churches and at Christian festivals for more than decade.

Lee Mack, a star of ‘Not Going Out,’ describes him as a “top comic, top writer and top bloke.”

West End Impact is a charity based at 4-10 Heysham Road. It has been active for 15 years, seeking to help people with a diversity of needs, providing guidance and sign-posting to other agencies.

Tickets are priced £8 in advance, from skiddle.com.
