Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Carl Hutchinson, Danny Posthill, and host Danny Deegan
Due to the extreme weather, Lloyd Griffith and Jack Carroll are no longer able to perform tonight. We're pleased to have the following line-up taking their place:
Carl Hutchinson is a multi-award winning comedian, having won the Beat The Frog World Series and Magners Comedian of the year awards in 2007. He's also a Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year Nominee and So You Think You’re Funny Finalist, was seen on ITV's FHM Comedy Hero and performed at the highly respected Big Value Comedy Showcase in Edinburgh in 2011.
Carl supported former three-time wrestling heavyweight champion and bestselling author Mick Foley on both of his UK Comedy Tours; in 2011 and 2012 respectively. Carl then supported Chris Ramsey on the last leg of his ‘Offermation’ tour in 2012, and performed his first solo hour at the 2012 Edinburgh festival where it was shortlisted in the Amused Moose Awards and has received outstanding reviews from all of the major festival press.
Carl returned to the Edinburgh Fringe with his second and third solo hours in 2013 and 2014, before heading out on a tour of large theatres alongside Chris Ramsey, which continued into 2015.
