Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Danny Posthill, George Rigden, and host Rick Molland
Britain's Got Talent finalist Danny Posthill’s career began at the young age of 16, making people laugh with hilarious impressions at his school talent show. Since then, comedy became Danny’s passion.
Skilled with a versatile act that caters for all audiences, Danny offers unbeatable stand up and a range of impressions such as Billy Connolly, Jimmy Carr, and Lee Evans, to guarantee an unforgettable night of laughter.
Danny has performed all around the world, from the Mediterranean to South America, and is gaining recognition on the UK circuit as one of the most promising British comedians.
“Impressionist Danny Posthill brings a bevy of other characters with him including Billy Connolly, David Beckham, Gary Barlow, Michael McIntyre, John Bishop, Alan Carr – and is funny in his own right too” - Richard Batson, EDP24
“Effortless performer of the highest quality” - Joke Club Comedy Clubs
“What a talented comedian” - Tim Vine
Rising star George Rigden is a Bristol-based musical comic who, despite having only been gigging since 2013, has already racked up hundreds of gigs and enjoyed success in a clutch of competitions.
He’s also gigged with the likes of Russell Howard, Stephen Merchant & Joe Wilkinson, and is the resident MC for legendary Bristol night, OPPO (founded by Mark Olver).
In 2015 George made his Edinburgh debut, having beaten off stiff competition to win a place in Bound & Gagged Comedy’s prestigious showcase ‘AAA’ at The Pleasance Edinburgh.
“Rigden is the result of a genetic mash-up between Mitch Benn and Tim Key, perhaps with a few strands of Ricky Gervais’s DNA thrown in... Very funny stuff” - Chortle
“Rigden’s musical comedy is deliciously dark... he is very good at working the crowd and of all tonight's acts he probably made the biggest impression” - Beyond The Joke
“George Rigden had the audience in his hands thanks to some great comedic timing, a little help from his guitar and a hint of David Mitchell in Peep Show” - Leicester Mercury
