Hilarity Bitesize New Act & New Material Night, with Simon Donald, host Andy Fury & support

Show details:

Simon Donald

Simon Donald

Simon Donald co-founded the publishing sensation of the 1980’s, Viz Comic, writing and drawing on its pages for 24 years, before leaving in 2003 to become a TV presenter, pundit and media whore. He moved into stand-up comedy in 2008, his one-man shows featuring annually at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Famed for the characters he created in Viz, Simon often performs as one or more of a bunch of new outrageous creations that have taken Donald's character creativity from page to stage - Barry Twyford market research dogsbody, whose bizarre survey raises more questions than it answers, Bingo from Benton drunken street philosopher and charmless aggressor, Jeremy Jitler novice comedian lacking a sense of humour, Rich Kestrel Cockney motormouth and 'supplier' to the stars, and Dominic Farquhar first year medic, the funniest guy on his whole landing. In fact, He's probably the funniest guy in the whole of Mandela Halls, actually.


“Superb, inventive comedy” - The Stage

“Hugely entertaining” - Chortle

“Subversive... very clever. Hilarious” - The List

Andy Fury

Andy Fury


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.
