Hartlepool, November 5th 2017

Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Russell Hicks, Rob Thomas, and host Pete Otway

Show details:

Russell Hicks

Russell Hicks

One of the most exciting comics to come out of America, Russell Hicks is branded one of the 'Top Six Comics to Watch' by LA's Stand Up Talk Magazine. He has appeared on LA based panel show Direct TV's 'What's News?' and is a regular guest on hit podcasts such as Talkin' Sh*t with Eddie Ifft.



Headlining the nationally acclaimed student circuit in the United States, Russell regularly takes his hour long solo shows across the country to the biggest universities.



Prolific and consistently delivering quality new work, audience members are often compelled to return for two nights in a row. Fast and loose, no two shows are ever the same


“Hicks has a sharp wit.. the pessimism of Jack Dee mixed with the deadpan aggression of Denis Leary. A riproaring night of tough love from a witty comedian ” - ★★★★ - Broadway Baby

“Russell Hicks was a surprising highlight for me – American standup who wove wide-ranging improvisation and interaction with the crowd with deprecating jokes about American stereotypes and a wry swipe back at British culture... very funny” - Ashbourne Voice

“Russell Hicks is amazing” - Comedy Palace

Replacing Lauren Pattison:

Rob Thomas

Rob Thomas

Frog And Bucket World Series Finalist 2012
Liverpool Comedian Of The Year Finalist 2012
Hilarity Bites New Comedian finalist 2013

Since Rob Thomas first took to the stage in 2010 he has quickly progressed to become one of the country's most promising up and coming comics.

With places in the final of some of the most prestigious new act competitions, Rob has established himself as a brilliant comedian, and he is now working for some of the biggest comedy clubs in the country.



“Bellowing, insistent, wonderful” - The Skinny

Pete Otway

Pete Otway

Since starting to perform in 2010, Pete Otway has quickly gained momentum, establishing himself as an extremely strong new act. As comfortable and confident as an MC as he is an act, he is booked regularly to do both, and was a recent finalist in the 2012 BBC New Comedy Awards.

With an affable and conversational style, mixed with an energetic stage manner and original writing, Pete is quickly making a name for himself on the UK circuit, and is certainly one to watch.


“Devastatingly funny” - Chortle

“Amiable, cheeky classic stand-up” - Liverpool Echo

“An amazing comedy talent, and we are making sure we are making sure we follow his every move in his ever rising career” - Crispy Comedy Club

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