John and Claire Lenahan: Loud & Louder (Edinburgh Preview)
  • West End

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). You may not like being Lena-handled but you will be able to hear it!

From Time-Out Street magician of the year in the 80's, John became a headliner on the London Comedy Circuit and compared more shows at the Leister Square Comedy store than any other act. Of his four network TV shows his true claim to fame is the voice of the Talking Toaster in Red Dwarf.

"If there is a better sleight-of-hand merchant than this politely sardonic Philadelphian, I've yet to encounter them." - London Evening Standard
"The mascot of a magical renaissance." - The Guardian

NATY's finalist 2017, Claire aspires to one day play the talking drink dispenser in a period drama.

"She's certainly got talents - and is an engaging watch" - Chortle
"Claire Lenahan is shouty" - BeyondTheJoke

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
