Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. George Zach, Harry Stachini, and host Andy Fury
George moved from Greece to study Biochemistry in Newcastle Upon Tyne and, in doing so, avoided joining the Greek army for his national service. He discovered stand-up soon after and has gone to sell out his show Greek Tragedy at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and support Luisa Omielan on her Am I Right Ladies tour. Recent BBC One appearances include the One Show and numerous appearances on This Week, discussing the Greek financial crisis.
Fortunately for George it turned out that he has quite the grasp of the English language, and also the fine art of comedy, including his witty observations on dating Geordie lasses and helpful translations of everyday Geordie phrases.
“George Zach went down well with the crowd and got some of the bigger laughs of the night. Really likeable act should go far” - Giggle Beats
“Pulls it off well with a style that is thoughtful and unexpected” - Broadway Baby
“Accessible, likeable, his jokes are solid and his timing impeccable” - The List
Harry Stachini very quickly established himself as an exciting new act on the comedy circuit, with his sharp delivery and easy-going style.
He's performed all over the UK at clubs such as The Comedy Store, Glee Club, Manford’s, and has compered the AAA Early Show at the Pleasance Courtyard for the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Harry’s stage presence as an act or compere is tremendously warm; crowds can’t help but enjoy themselves when he takes them into his imagination with his charismatic stories and distinctive outlook on the world, leaving them in stitches.
“Harry is a must-see act with oodles of onstage charm and compelling, inventive storytelling” - Spotlight Comedy
“He very quickly got the night off to a flying start. His material is very strong and he delivers it with great skill and timing” - Notts Comedy Review
“A talented new comedian with some first-rate material” - Smacked Arse Comedy
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
