Hilarity Bitesize New Act & New Material Night, with Lauren Pattison, host Andy Fury & support
Lauren Pattison is one of the brightest young talents on the comedy scene. She came runner up at the Funny Women Awards 2014 and in 2015 was the only female comedian to reach the final of the Chortle Student Comedy Awards. In August 2016 Lauren reached the final of the 2016 BBC Radio New Comedy Award competition, and in 2017 she was runner-up in the English Comedian of the Year competition, following a nomination for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards.
Following her success in competitions, she has performed at the last two Latitude festivals, and has also supported TV favourite Katherine Ryan on several tour dates, and opened for Stewart Francis. A regular on the North-East circuit, this baby faced comic is one to watch out for.
“Sharp writing” - The Guardian
“Definitely one to watch” - Funny Women
“...a high gag count in this well-polished set” - Chortle
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.
Note: Line-ups are subject to change in extreme, and unavoidable, circumstances.
