Hilarity Bitesize New Act & New Material Night, with John Scott, host Andy Fury & support
Multi-award winning Scotsman John Scott took his first tentative steps into stand up in 1999 and just 3 months after his first appearance found himself doing his first run at the Edinburgh Festival.
Since then, John has appeared at a further five festivals, and returned this year with a brand new show. In the meantime, he picked up the Spike Milligan award for new talent in 2003 and then paired that up with the Take the Mic award at the 2010 Edinburgh Fringe - the richest prize in UK comedy.
Resident in Newcastle, he now finds himself a favourite with audiences around the country as he headlines and MCs at all the major clubs around the UK and has gigged as far afield as the Middle East.
“A genuinely gifted comedian” - Adelaide Rocks
“Always plays a blinder. Never hits a dry patch. People were literally in tears of laughter” - The Observer
“Confidently told hilarious tales of class-based woe, nothing missed the mark in a superb set where every story was expertly crafted before being subverted with a killer punch line” - The Sun
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
“Brilliant... The next Pub Landlord of comedy” - Hexham Courant
“A very funny man with a big future ahead of him” - Corby Radio
This show will also feature support from several new acts, and established acts performing new material.
