Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Dominic Woodward, Pete Selwood, and host Kate McCabe
Dominic started comedy young and wide eyed back in 2001, and with nearly two decades experience on the UK circuit he's a safe pair of hands. He's cheeky, charming, full of energy and hilarious.
Now married with a mortgage, Dominic weaves side-splitting stories about his life and tells belly aching jokes that hit the mark with all audiences. There’s a naughty twinkle in his eyes but his act is warm, personal and inoffensive.
Dominic is always in demand as an act and compere. He regularly performs in comedy clubs all over the UK and overseas.

“Engaging material” - Manchester Evening News
A hotly tipped up and coming comedian on the circuit, Pete Selwood has quickly risen through the comedy ranks with swagger. After winning the Lawrence Batley New Yorkshire Comedian of the Year (quite a mouthful), he has gone from strength to strength, winning comedy competitions and winning over audiences.
The Barnsley born Yorkshireman is an adept storyteller, focussing on tales of Northern life as a perpetually single man in his 20s. Being born with only one hand also gives him a unique view and experience of the world around him, poking fun at having a fairly minor disability in modern Britain.
In keeping with his material about disability, Selwood is also half of a double-act with Britain's Got Talent star Jack Carroll, performing sketches and creating videos about the portrayal of disability within our society.

American comic Kate McCabe moved to Manchester from the US over a decade ago with her Scottish partner - putting the wheels in motion shortly after George W Bush was elected for a second term as President!
Growing up in Erie, Pennsylvania, Kate studied theatre arts at New York University, and following her passion for stand-up comedy, Kate continued to make us laugh, perforning throughout New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, New Jersey and the UK.
When not performing stand-up, she also writes and performs with Manchester-based sketch group The Tourists, hosts her own alternative comedy night, Sidekick Comedy, in Manchester's Gay Village, and also performs improv with ComedySportz - the Manchester-based comedy troupe who battle it out for the biggest laughs.
