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.
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
Paul Roberts, St Gobain Weber
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.

Lea was a pleasure to have at our Anual Golf day at Moortown Golf Club in Leeds.
We've had excellent feed back from all our clients and team on Lea's performance and how he delivered a fresh yet cheeky act.
I would definitely recommend him and I would love to work with Lea again.
Dan Wier Whole In One - 9th July 2015
Lea was brilliant,we had a problem with our sound system,"no problem i'll do it without". He came on to the dance floor and amongst the guests, having them in stitches, his observations on life left us all with sore sides. We would definitely have him again.
Douglas Hewat. Rastrick Bowling & Social Club. 18th September 2015.
Everyone enjoyed Lea, The jokes he told all related to their lives, they loved him, and what a nice man.
It was the best ladies night ever and we would love to see him again.
Thank you Chantal for a great recommendation great choice.

Just a note to thank Lea for a great performance at our Cricket Club dinner last friday.With a mixed audience, Lea played to the crowd without resorting to being rude and everyone thoroughly enjoyed his performance. He is highly recommended for any sporting or corporate function.
The Venue Halifax. Adrian Moore 9.10.2015
Well what can I say about Lea, yet another outstanding performance at our annual awards evening. This is the third time Lea has performed for us at the same event, he always does his research into the kind of audience he is performing to, always takes the time out to talk through things before hand and even makes last minute improvisations when the microphone breaks half way through the performance!! I couldn't believe that he remembered us, as its been quite a few years since he last performed for us.
I would not hesitate to book Lea again, everyone who I spoke to after the performance said they really enjoyed it and their cheeks were hurting they had laughed so much.
Our audience is made up of senior managers, staff, parents and the guys who have just graduated their training programmes.
Louise Bilton. REW NPOWER 8.10.2015 Passinf out parade.
Lea was outstanding on the night and we will definitely have him back.
Its the first time I have seen anyone have a standing ovation when "Leaving the club".

t's an absolute pleasure to send a Testimonial for Lea
He did a set of around 40 minutes, which had no lull in it whatsoever and kept the audience in fits of laughter from start to finish. He ad- libbed and engaged with the guests, in an off the cuff style, which went down really well. And to cap things off, Lea was great company on our table before his performance, he also stayed and mixed with the Guests for over an hour after the Lunch formalities had finished. He left a fantastic impression with everyone. I would not hesitate in recommending Lea to anybody who is considering hosting a Dinner and who requires a 1st Class comedian"
Tony Cottey. Sussex Cricket Club. Lunch. 19.11.2015.
I am pleased to say that the evening went well, both Don Goodman and Lea Roberts performed well. Lea bought his own brand of yorkshire humour to Shrewsbury and told his own brand of jokes that i for one had not heard before, alaways a good sign.
Orginality is the key tool for the comedian to use.
As predicted we had a number of women in the audience and Lea tapered down his language for that.
I have had good feedback from a number of those who attended our dinner.
I would recommendLea. Chris Smith. Super Blues Club. Fund raiser. 16.11.2015.
Lea Roberts was excellent, his attitude and attention to details are second
to none. He appeals to both male & mixed audience and ensure he makes them
all laugh. This was not his first visit to Cleckheaton but he still got a
massive round of applauses as he finished.
Mark Waite. Cleckheaton R.U.F.C. Pre-match entertainment. 19.12.15.
It is quite simple to describe Lea Roberts as one of the best comedians we have had at Darwen Golf Club. From the minute he arrived at the club he was a delight and a credit to both himself and your company.
Lea's performance was superb, he had everybody in stitches from his very first line. He was able to command the audience superbly, which by the time he got on, comprised of 120 Men all feeling the effects of several hours
alcohol intake, an achievement not to be underestimated.
His range of jokes and tales were excellent and a point noted by many of the audience , ' without swearing' made it a pleasure to listen to him.
I would gladly recommend Lea to anybody considering hiring him and I know for a fact that we will be booking him again.
Ian Geogarty. Darwen Golf Club. 5.2.2016
"I can honestly say that Lea did not just add to the occasion, he MADE the occasion. Every one of the 32 attendees commented on what an absolute delight Lea's show was, and even the bar staff stopped serving just to listen.
He is a perfect gentleman and was willing to chat and entertain people before and after the set.

Please pass our thanks to Lea, his stories are still making us laugh..!! A very funny chap from Halifax...!
I'm presuming I will be responsible for organising a similar event next March. Won't hesitate to contact you in plenty of time to get fixed up.
Lea was down to earth and very funny. He kept the audience engaged and laughing from beginning to end.”
Alison Tait. Chartered Institite of Taxation.28.06.17
I personally thought he was excellent, and everyone I have spoken to felt the same.Very funny and a really nice guy.Thank you for organising things
Howard Illingworth.Northern Energy. 29.06.17
"I booked Lea for a mixed golf event. You could tell he was judging the audience's reaction for the first few minutes to see where he was able to "pitch" his turn. He was hilarious, very inoffensive and totally suitable for the audience he was presenting to. He didn't need a microphone and everyone could hear him very clearly. His act had a "Northern" slant but I'm sure he could tailor that to another regional audience. I would highly recommend him".
Barbara Croxen. Bradford Golf Club. 12.07.17
Les was fantastic, his performance was perfectly judged and in keeping with the tone of our event.
He was very personable and respectful towards the guests attending the event. After he had performed he remained in the lounge for hours mingling with the guests and being generally friendly and social. I cannot recommend him any more highly! One of the best in out 17 years of running the events.
Please pass on my personal gratitude to Lea.
Julian Jowett. Elite Furniture UK Ltd. 20.07.17
Then came Lea, we had a few problems with the Mike, don’t bother Lee(Sharpe) I won’t let you down was his cry, I have a big cob. He was hilarious, he had the crowd in the palm of his hand, a very funny guy and a gentleman, he again had time for everyone.The pair as a team (Lee Sharpe and Lea Roberts) will be hard to beat pal, the night was the best yet and both very well received. I would have them both back in a shot
Lee Butterworth - GMP Police. 25.09.17
I have now seen Lea three times and he just gets better and better, he certainly knows how to entertain in his own way and this is what I think makes him one of the best stand-up comedy acts I have seen in a long time, he attended our Northern Regional Golf Day last week and had 90+ guys rolling round with laughter, even the ladies in attendance were all switched on to his great sense of humour certainly giving us all good value.
Richard Wright. Adey Innovation LLP 06.10.17
The event went really well, and although we haven’t yet pulled the full costs together, we believe we have raised over £14,000 from the event.
Lea arrived slightly late as the traffic was bad, but it wasn’t an issue.
I had put together an itinary for him which we ran through before the event as people were arriving into the function room.
I introduced the guest speaker who delivered a pretty hard hitting speech about the work that the NSPCC do and Lea then had to pick the audience up afterwards. Which he did with some style.
He was very complimentary to both me, our speaker and our guests.
He did comment a few times that we had made him feel welcome, put him at ease and made his roll in the evening simple. Which was my aim.
Lea’s stand-up routine was great and pitched just at the right level for a room of mixed ages and genders, I couldn’t have asked for better.
He handed the raffle and auction brilliantly and his spontaneous comments and humour kept the entire room interested throughout.
I am convinced that without his help we would not have raised as much as we did.
Many people have spoken to me since the event about how well the whole thing went and all have commented on how good Lea was.
I would have no hesitation in booking Lea again or in recommending him.Please pass on our thanks to lea for a job well done.
