Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Steve Harris, Damian Clark, and host Will Duggan
Steve first leapt on stage back in August 1998 and within 3 months had won himself the coveted North-West comedian of the year award after just 5 gigs. A finalist of the BBC New Comedy Awards and Channel 4’s “So You Think You’re Funny” in the same year, Steve went on to headline all of the top comedy clubs in the UK, as well as venues as far flung as Hong Kong and Australia.
With his ever-expanding reputation the demand for Steve has come from all different types of media outlets including radio and TV, and with support slots with the likes of Johnny Vegas, Peter Kay and Lee Evans, Steve comes highly recommended from the heavyweights of comedy.
Whatever age or walk of life you’re from Steve has something for you, guaranteed to have you breathless with laughter, a master of the obvious and a Ninja of the not so obvious, you’ll be hit so hard by a punch line you won’t know where it’s come from.
“Quite simply, fantastically funny” - BBC
“He’s caustic and witty, a good all-rounder” - The Guardian
“Steve Harris is a hip-hopping, gag-spinning bundle of joy, go see him now before he gets too big” - City Life
Aussie boy Damian Clark burst onto the UK comedy circuit in 2012 where his high-octane observational stand up has certainly caused some waves. Clark’s infectious energy and childlike outlook has had audiences in hysterics from the get-go and was snapped up immediately to appear on BBC3 & Comedy Central.
Before touching down in the UK, Damian made Ireland his home and became a regular feature in RTE's IFTA Award-winning Republic of Telly, comedy panelist in TV3's The Apprentice: You're Fired!, plus wrote & co-starred in I Dare Ya! ('Critics' Choice' – The Irish Times, 'A Smash Hit' – The Sunday Mirror), which became the highest rating Irish comedy debut to date.
Damo's rambunctious and uplifting stand up continues, as he tours clubs & festivals all over the UK, Ireland, Europe and beyond. Now is the time to catch this raw talent as he stands on the cusp of super stardom.

“There is barely a bad word to say about Clark: distinctive and possessing a comic talent beyond his years, both biological and mental” - Chortle
