Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Raymond Mearns, El Baldiniho, and host Andy Fury
Whether he is engaged in super quick audience interaction or telling a hilarious shaggy dog story, Raymond Mearns is one of the UK’s most popular circuit comedians. With a blinding talent for improvisation, Raymond is renowned as one of the nations top comperes and this is underlined by the fact he is a regular at the nations top comedy venues.
Playing to audiences at the country’s best venues every week has sharpened Raymond’s comedy skills to the point where he is flexible enough to perform in front of anyone, whether in a big city theatre or an intimate club room. Raymond has also performed sell-out shows world-wide, from New York to Melbourne, Kuala Lumpur, and beyond.
TV and film appearances include Rab C Nesbitt's Christmas Special and BBC Scotland Sitcom: 'Legit' (2008). Films include 'Ae Fond Kiss' (2004) and 'It’s a Free World' (2007), both directed by the legendary Ken Loach.
“A personality so huge it fills the room” - The List
“Every line that issues from this man is funny” - Chortle
“A man that knows how to swear properly” - Billy Connolly
“A genuine improvisational genius” - Frankie Boyle
EL Baldiniho is a funny, “larger than life” (i.e overweight) comedy magician performing throughout the UK to a vast range of audiences.
One of the most versatile newer acts on the circuit, his brand of magic, comedy, and spoof mind-reading always hits the spot – whether at professional comedy clubs, cabaret nights, theatre shows, student nights, family friendly festivals or events for children.
On the comedy circuit since 2010, El Baldiniho has seen a meteoric rise to the middle end of the UK comedy scene, having performed at Camp Bestival, The Larmer Tree Festival, Wychwood Festival, and at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone
“A fun filled sold-out success” - Canterbury International Festival
“Does one of the funniest jokes I’ve ever seen” - Rich Hall
“A smart, slightly surreal, very daft amazing act” - Mark Makin, Makin Projects Theatre Producer
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
