Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Patrick Monahan, Sammy Dobson, and host Andy Fury
Replacing Keith Farnan:
Audience favourite Patrick Monahan blends a high energy comedy style with hilarious and engaging topical and observational material. Known for working a room, Patrick is adored by his audiences with whom he makes an effortless connection!
Pat has performed all over the world, including Dubai, Australia, New York, Norway, and almost every town and city in Britain. A regular at festivals around the world, and a successful solo touring act in the UK, Pat was recently named the hardest working comedian in the UK by website Ents24.
In addition to his live work, Patrick has recorded four solo comedy specials, released online and on DVD, whilst he was also the winner of two ITV competition series, Take the Mike and Show Me the Funny.
As seen on The One Show (BBC), Fake Reaction (ITV), Celebrity Squares (ITV), and BBC Asian Network Comedy.

“Patrick Monahan is a great comic" - ★★★★ - Broadway Baby
Sammy Dobson started her career at 14 in Byker Grove, and went on to appear in many BBC and ITV dramas and films including ‘I, Daniel Blake’. Her most recent TV credits include hit comedies such as 'Boy Meets Girl', and appearances in the first two series of Dave's award-winning 'Meet The Richardsons'.
Sammy decided to try stand up comedy for a charity event a few years ago and hasn’t stopped since! Sammy now appears at a number of the country’s top venues, and has performed solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe whilst also appearing in alternative pantomimes and sketch shows in her native Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.
“Shockingly funny... observational comedy Michael McIntyre couldn't possibly approach” - NARC Magazine
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
