Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Dylan Gott, Jay Hampson, and host Rob Mulholland
Dylan Gott made a big impression in a short time on the Canadian comedy circuit, being nominated for a coveted Canadian Comedy Award, and has been selected to perform at prestigious comedy festivals such as Just For Laughs, Icebreakers, and North By Northeast. Dylan is a well travelled act, fortunately for us, London is where he currently calls home, and Dylan is fast making a name for himself on the UK circuit.
Lots of Dylan’s comedy is self-deprecating; indeed the majority of his performance is full of references to the ways his awkward demeanor gets him in trouble in public. However he is a likeable and relatable character, with a sharp edge, that often appears unexpectedly.
“This is strong club-set stuff – you can easily envisage this playing well in any weekend line-up” - Chortle
“a modest vibe with flashes of anger lurking beneath” - Now Toronto
“Delightfully bizarre” - AV Club
Jay Hampson started performing in 2009 and quickly established himself as an act who was one to watch. Jay has a cheeky and very likeable demeanour, with a set full of clever observations and sharp punchlines. A confident and commanding performer, Jay is a regular on the festival circuit.
In his time performing, Jay has won a variety of competitions, including four new act of the year competition victories in 2012. In 2015 he made the final of the prestigious Amused Moose Laugh Off Competition, whilst away from the stage he has regularly appeared on BBC Radio Manchester.
“Hampson is a strong, natural performer... Someone who’s so obviously got both funny bones and the love of the audience” - Chortle
“...huge laughs. Very fun” - Arts Awards Voice
One of the fastest rising new comedians on the circuit, Rob Mulholland fell into comedy after finding a flyer looking for acts to appear at Harrogate Comedy Festival on the ground outside his front door. In the two years since, he has clocked up a huge amount of gigs all over the country ranging from tiny pubs to massive theatres (even performing to 2,000 bikers at an outdoor festival!), and can now be seen most weekends in some of the biggest comedy clubs in the country.
Just as at home as an act or compere, Rob mixes cheeky audience banter with his intricately woven, gag-packed stories; adding a touch of the absurd to his askance glance at everyday life. Rob is 17 feet tall, made of steel and can jump over a mini cooper from a standing start.
Rob is the current Hilarity Bites New Act of the Year, and after finishing runner-up in this year’s Great Yorkshire Fringe New Act of the Year competition has awarded himself the title of "Yorkshire’s Funniest Non-Musical Comedian". He was one half of the anarchic, late-night, yurt-based show #BlurredMinds at the 2015 Edinburgh festival and premiered his first solo show ‘Champion of Comedy’ at the Leicester Comedy Festival in 2016.
