Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Brendon Burns, Glenn Moore, and host Danny Deegan

Show details:

Brendon Burns

Brendon Burns

If we were to use one word to describe Burns’ career it’d be “interesting”. This is not your everyday comic. Older, wiser, calmer - Brendon’s energy is still enticing. His turn of phrase is coarse yet oddly eloquent, whilst remaining fully accessible and intensely loveable. Never pompous and ever self-deprecating, he just somehow seems to get away with murder, and his influence is ubiquitous throughout the stand-up world.

Brendon Burns is an Australian stand-up comedian & author, who's television career began alongside Sacha Baron Cohen & Ricky Gervais as a performer on The 11 O’Clock Show (Channel 4), but he is probably best known for his fearsome live solo shows, currently tallying at eighteen, with ten albums, and six live CDs to his name.

He first appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe in 1996 and has returned every year since (bar 1999) and in 2007 won the unofficial Oscar of Stand up - the Edinburgh Fringe Festival Perrier Award for his show 'So I Suppose This Is Offensive Now'. He released his first semi-autobiographical novel 'Fear of Hat Loss in Las Vegas' in 2010.


“The single most jaw-dropping, awkward, yet ultimately rewarding bit of stand up we have ever seen” - ★★★★★★ (An unprecedented six stars) - Time Out

“A comedians’ comedian... a perennial mischief-maker” - Chortle

“Not only has he been pushing back the boundaries of taste for years, I’m quite certain he has no idea where they are” - Jimmy Carr

Glenn Moore

Glenn Moore

Glenn Moore is a critically-acclaimed and prolific stand-up, writer, and sketch comedian.

His first stand-up show, Glengarry Glen Glenn was one of 2016’s best-reviewed debut shows of the Edinburgh Fringe, and was nominated for ‘Best Debut Show’ at Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival. Known for his distinctive and inventive jokes, Glenn has supported Tiff Stevenson, Josie Long, and Alun Cochrane on tour, and in September 2017 made his Mock The Week debut for the BBC.

Glenn is a staff writer on the CITV sketch comedy show Scrambled, has written for Russell Howard’s Good News and Play To The Whistle, and has contributed material for Mock The Week. He frequently appears alongside Vernon Kay, Johnny Vaughan and Ricky Wilson on Radio X as a newsreader. He’s also known for his silly, off-beat one-liners on Twitter, which have earned him a huge following.


“An inventive thinker who stands apart for the quantity and quality of his gags. Great one-liners” - Chortle

“Glenn Moore is tipped for great things” - GQ

“Relentlessly silly and gag-laden – a potential comedy great” - The List

Danny Deegan

Danny Deegan

Danny Deegan is a comedian, writer and actor who began performing in 2003 and has since risen steadily through the ranks of some of the most prestigious comedy clubs in the UK. His tales of mischief and the characters he creates have kept audiences all over the country enthralled as he weaves in and out of the people he has met travelling. His talent and likability coupled with a confident swagger see him as one of the most popular acts in the North.

Fresh from a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe, where he received rave reviews, Danny also recently performed a headline set at the Green Man festival in South Wales getting a great reception from the 400 people in the marquee and being asked to wrap up for Manchester band Doves after their headline set in front of 12,000 people.

Outside of live work Danny has made several TV and radio appearances. From being a guest on Radio GMR to having his own show "Afternoons with Danny Deegan" on CAT FM in Crewe. His TV credits include appearances on "Made in the North" and "The Adam and Shelley Show" to name but two.


“His seamless interactions with the crowd demonstrate that he’s a natural-born comedian... appealing to both the young and old, female and male” - Three Weeks

“Charming, witty and most importantly funny” - Metro

“Deegan has a mature confidence in his abilities” - Chortle

This show will also feature a newer act in the middle.
