Lea’s comedy is based on traditional Northern humour, appealing to audiences from young to not so young ! and is one of the few comedians around today with the ability to appeal in either the mainstream or “alternative” domain. He likens his style and personality to Peter Kay – something Dave Spikey was quick to point out when working alongside him.
In 2002 Lea won the ITV comedy talent contest “Stand Up Britain” taking the regional heat and then winning the national final hands down, live on TV. Event host Ed Byrne had already acknowledged Lea was the outright winner long before half the regional votes had been received – such was his popular appeal.
An attainment in professional Rugby League makes Lea an obvious choice for sporting functions, but this background has also helped to make Lea a “well known” and popular choice on the after dinner circuit throughout the UK
Lea Roberts Is not just a fantastic comedian he is an excellent all-round entertainer. Lea mixed and socialised with our guests without request nothing was too much trouble, his welcoming friendly approach set the tone for the evening helping to bring our customers together, he added real value to the event. His comedy style is fitted perfectly with dynamics of the group and evening, however within due respectful boundaries of professionalism, a necessary requirement of the host business. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lea, you won’t be disappointed.
A great guy

I just wanted to say a huge thanks for organising Lea to attend our headteachers Conference in Sandbanks on Thursday. Lea was both funny on and off stage and everyone loved him! His repertoire was appropriate for our group and many of the Headteachers would like him to return next year, which is always a good sign! Lea was down to earth and good company, what more could we ask for. Please pass on my personal thanks. I would not hesitate in using your company for further events as for judgement was spot on.

"We booked Lea Roberts for our annual networking dinner with 90 + attendees earlier this month. Honestly, he was absolutely brilliant.
His act was current and his personality was very endearing. Everyone was captivated and the audience participation was hilarious. It really set the tone for our two-day event and would highly recommend him. Can't thank you enough, as I felt it was a big responsibility on my shoulders! "

“On behalf of our chairman, I would like to thank you for providing the excellent services of Lea Roberts at our Annual Dinner, venue of the Royal Lancaster Hotel, London. It must be said that Lea made the evening for all of us, because of his friendly, laid back presentation manner. In fact, so striking was his presentation, our members were seen to be reeling and clapping for more. This after dinner speaker was the topic of much conversation that evening. Next year, Lea will be a very hard act to follow.”
Mike Lepper, Secretary, Institute of Measurement & Control.
Just a quick message to say a big thank you to Lea for his set at the Pump Centre Event at Telford last week. We all thought he was great and he contributed to what was our best ever conference dinner.
Lea ranks amongst the funniest we have had over the past 10 years and his non offensive approach was ideal for our audience.
Thanks for a great evening!
John Howarth, Pump Centre (May 2013)
Very entertaining great company, would recommend for any event.
