Hilarity Bitesize New Act & New Material Night, with Anthony J. Brown, host Andy Fury & support
Anthony J. Brown
Clad in a sartorially edifying bespoke manner, like a dapper and dandy funeral director, Anthony cuts a unique on-stage presence with humour blacker than a raven that has slammed it's claw in a coffin lid.
Eschewing the well trodden terrain of the one-liner witticism, Mr Brown's penchant is for 4, 5, 6 and 7-liners drenched in evocative imagery and laced with comedic red herrings. And not the merest hint of profanity.
The overall effect is both perversely hypnotic and wholly original, leaving the audience zealously hanging on to every syllable like turncoat lemmings on a rockface.
“A truly unique performer... superb” - Reece Shearsmith (League of Gentlemen)
“The audience probably have time to nip to the bar and back between the feedline and the punch. That they generally don't is testament to just how well it works in Brown's hands, for few would want to miss the next gem to ooze languidly from his lips” - Chortle
“King of the deadpan deliveries with an almost eerie stage presence” - Newcastle Evening Chronicle
Despite starting comedy out of “sheer boredom” just a few years ago, Andy Fury has impressed a lot of people in a short space of time with a wonderful mix of self-deprecating dark jokes and off the wall surrealism.
With a laidback stage presence that sometimes borders horizontal, he’s as hard-working as he is funny and winning the Hilarity Bites New Act Of The Year 2010 title has put Andy on the path to working at many of the best clubs in the country, wowing audiences the length and breadth of the UK.
“An absolute genius of a comedian” - BBC
“Brilliant... The next Pub Landlord of comedy” - Hexham Courant
“A very funny man with a big future ahead of him” - Corby Radio
This show will also feature support from several new acts, and established acts performing new material.
