Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Christian Reilly, Harriet Dyer, and host Dave Twentyman

Show details:

Christian Reilly

Christian Reilly

Christian Reilly is both a Perrier and Chortle award-winning musical comedian with “sex, politics and rock 'n' roll” (The Scotsman) in the key of grrr.

As a former integral part of the Perrier award-winning show Otis Lee Crenshaw and the Black Liars, with comic/songster Rich Hall, Christian's career has taken him around the world three times. On his way, he received accolades at international festivals and numerous network TV credits in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Britain.

Now a solo stand-up performer, and headlining all the major comedy venues in his own right, Christian uses his dynamic guitar and vocal skills to target histrionic rock bands, musical theatre and morose indie musicians. He wrote and performed for 'That Was Then This Is Now' (BBC Radio 2) as musical counterpart to Richard Herring and Emma Kennedy, as well as giving his improvisation skills an outing on Radio 2's 'Jammin'.


“Blisteringly funny songs” - The Stage

“If you’re a fan of Bill Bailey or Rich Hall, you’re a Christian Reilly fan already” - The Guardian

“The funniest songs I’ve heard in a long time” - The Scotsman

 

Harriet Dyer

Harriet Dyer

Fresh and unique, it’s a pleasure to spend time in Harriet Dyer's company as she weaves her surreal and hilarious tales. An imitable raconteur, it’s easy to see how this newer act is making a big noise.

Harriet already has heads turning with her baffling tales of a misspent youth, and bewildering personal tales that are so ridiculous, they must be true. Establishing her own style of material and delivery after such a short time, means Harriet’s stock can only continue to rise.

A unique comic voice, Dyer charms any room with matchless material, an offbeat stage presence and a truly whirlwind fizz of energy. Harriet's debut full length solo outing 'Barking at Aeroplanes' premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2014, exploring her myriad escapades, which often end in folk questioning her mental health, her tales consistently delving into the thin line between 'eccentric' and 'mental'.


“a bundle of whimsical hilarity... a breath of fresh air... will have you in stitches” - Broadway Baby

“She's got funny bones!” - Kevin Bridges

“Instinctively funny... seems certain to become a comic force to be reckoned with” - Chortle

 

Replacing Tom Houghton:

Dave Twentyman

Dave Twentyman

Affable, quick-witted banter merchant, Dave Twentyman survived a childhood in St Helens by evolving rapid, startlingly-bright patter and a smile that he somehow stole from Barry Manilow. This is a man who could teach Teflon a trick-or-two but who remains vastly more fun than your average frying-pan. What higher praise can there be?

No matter what your mood, you really can't help but warm to Dave. He puts a big smile on everyone's face. His chatty, cheeky style endears him to the toughest of crowds. Dave talks a lot about the subjects closer to home, such as family life & friends. Its lighthearted, positive fun, you can't help relating to.

A regular performer at many of the best weekend clubs in the country, Dave has also performed at a number of music festivals over the years such as Leeds, V Festival, Download, etc


“Thoroughly impressed, best I've seen in ages. Great warmth and style” - Dave Spikey

“F**king Brilliant” - John Bishop

“Really like his stuff” - Jason Manford
