Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Gavin Webster & Karen Bayley
2014 Comedian's Comedian of the Year winner
Gavin Webster has been on the rise. He’s been on the rise for over twenty years. After making his modest debut in a pub in Gateshead in February 1993 he's done about three thousand gigs from Aberdeen to Abu Dhabi, Manchester to Melbourne and Hartlepool to Hong Kong.
Gavin Webster's shows are high octane, close to the bone and quick fire, with many gag to the minute routines, peppered with sardonic songs that are finished by the time you decide you need to complain about them. Black humour, observations and moronic jokes complete the unique and stand-alone experience of seeing this greatly original, angry comedian.
Very much the last ever punk rocker, people that take to Gavin Webster are fans for life and stay loyal to him throughout. His unique style has brought him praise and attention from throughout the national media, as well as many roles on TV and radio, including an appearance on Never Mind The Buzzcocks.
“Funny, clever and as brilliantly observed as you’ll find” - The Scotsman
“Palpably funny” - ★★★★★ - Herald
“His daftness is little short of surreal genius” - The Stage
Karen began her comedy career back in 2000 and since then has gone from strength to strength. Her bold, no nonsense attitude strikes a perfect pitch with men and women alike, and she is equally at home compering or performing sets.
Karen is also resident compere of her own clubs in Sutton Coldfield and Solihull, with her claim to fame to date being that she was the first woman (in its history) to win the King Gong show at The Comedy Store.
Karen has also worked in TV and radio, including appearances on the BBC New Comedy Awards (BBC3), The Last Word (ITV1), Sex on the Job (Sky 1), and 100 Greatest Cartoons (Channel 4).
“Laugh out loud jokes and superb audience control” - Chortle
“Likeable headstrong persona- packing a considerable performing punch” - The List
“She blew my socks off” - BBC
