Paul McCaffrey will be describing his struggles getting to grips with being spied on by the Chinese through his new phone, married life and how he ruined his honeymoon, idiotic self-help books that keep getting recommended to him, and setting fire to his oven gloves.

McCaffrey, who will be appearing at Chorley Little theatre on Wednesday, October 20, is an absolute lemon, but very funny. Paul has recently appeared on major UK tours with two of Britain’s foremost stand-ups, Sean Lock and Kevin Bridges – playing to more than half a million people in arenas and theatres to great critical acclaim.

He has also been the support act for Michael McIntyre, John Bishop and Lee Mack. Now, post-Covid, he’s hitting the road again, but in his own right this time – with the hilarious new show LEMON.
