Hilarity Bitesize New Act & New Material Night, with Jonny Pelham, host Andy Fury & support
Jonny Pelham began comedy at university and while he was there he achieved runner-up in both the coveted So You Think You’re Funny competition and The Chortle Student Comedy Awards. Since graduating university Jonny has continued to impress and was a finalist and judges choice in the BBC Radio New Comedy Awards, as well as being nominated for Chortle Best Newcomer in 2014.
2016 saw Jonny make the exciting step over to the small screen on Russell Howards Stand Up Central for Comedy Central followed by a support slot on Live At The BBC this year. Jonny has also appeared in the Viceland series, Harriet & Bobby Get Married and Plane Spotting for Turtle Canyon.
With three critically acclaimed solo shows under his belt, Before and After (2015), Fool’s Paradise (2016) and Just Shout Louder (2017), Jonny has a number of up-coming television projects in the pipe-line, including a presenting debut and bookings to write across a number of television projects.
“Reassuring presence and way with a story – there are echoes of Daniel Kitson in his writing” - The Guardian
“Engagingly wry temperament and clear anecdotal gifts” - ★★★★ - The Scotsman
“His presence and storytelling have them all entranced for an hour” - ★★★★ - The Skinny
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.
