Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Alun Cochrane, Stephanie Laing, and host Lee Kyle

Show details:

Alun Cochrane

Alun Cochrane

You'll know Alun Cochrane from TV, radio, and being one of the best stand-ups in the UK.

Alun Cochrane is a no-nonsense comedian who specialises in funny nonsense. Much of his comedy begins simply as something he’s seen, heard or felt in his own life, or in the street, or the kitchen, or anywhere, and from that it blossoms into a highly amusing anecdote or a strange flight of fancy.

Alun has several television appearances to his name, most recently Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow, and Dave's One Night Stand, but he's also often seen on Have I Got News For You, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Mock The Week, and has appeared on Soccer A.M and Live At The Comedy Store.

Alun’s dulcet tones can also be heard frequently on BBC Radio 4 on Alun Cochrane’s Fun House, Just A Minute, Dilemma and The Now Show, whilst Alun is also affectionately known as the Cockerel on Absolute Radio's Frank Skinner Show.


“Cochrane’s dour and grumpy onstage persona is allied to a real craft and creativity in his writing, yielding results that satisfy both the comedy purists and those who simply want big belly laughs on a night out” - The Guardian

“A master storyteller, holding the audience before dropping an exploding but simple punchline...” - Metro

“Alun Cochrane's ability to make the little things in life a comedy goldmine is phenomenal” - Chortle

 

Stephanie Laing

Stephanie Laing

Goofy and peculiar, Stephanie Laing’s comedy is partway between the needy oddness of Maria Bamford and the upbeat affability of Josie Long. Her material is a mix of silliness, filth and unusual observations, underpinned by a disarming honesty which makes her seem charmingly vulnerable.

A regular on the circuit Stephanie has also become a stalwart of comedy festivals across the country having appeared at Brighton Fringe, Leicester Comedy Festival, York Comedy Festival, Bath Comedy Festival, Women in Comedy Festival as well as appearing at the Edinburgh Fringe every year since 2010. Not content with just performing in the UK Stephanie has also appeared at UCB in New York & The Laugh Factory in L.A.

Most recently in 2018 Stephanie took her solo show ‘Mad About The Boy’ to the Melbourne, Adelaide & Perth comedy festivals.


“Laing is a jovial, baby faced performer who comes across as utterly unencumbered, so it doesn’t especially feel like adult humour when it plainly is... Laing has a Sarah Millican-esque appeal” - Chortle

“Disgusting and delightful in equal measure. She is definitely one to watch” - Three Weeks

“Gloriously silly … wonderfully unpretentious” - Broadway Baby

 

 

Lee Kyle

Lee Kyle

In his never ending quest not to have a proper job, Lee Kyle spent time as part of an all male Spice Girls tribute act before spending a decade as a professional wrestler.

Managing the difficult trick of being both odd and relatable, he did a show at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2013 that he heard was well received but he doesn't read reviews because his psyche is too fragile to handle them so he isn't totally sure what they said.

Armed with props and a rapid gag rate he cuts a confident, if off-beat figure on stage. His jokes veer between the clever and the silly and deliver more than their fair share of belly laughs.


“Had everyone on their feet - Sublimely ridiculous” - The Northern Echo

“A brilliant performance.. Pure genius!” - NARC Magazine

“Quirky and original - the highlight of the night” - Giggle Beats

 

This show will also feature a newer act in the middle.

 

Note: Line-ups are subject to change in extreme, and unavoidable, circumstances.
