Hilarity Bitesize New Act & New Material Night, with Sully O’Sullivan, Kate McCabe, host Rick Molland & support
Sully O'Sullivan has been declared a highlight of the New Zealand International Comedy Festival by The NZ Herald, a highlight of the Glasgow International Comedy Festival by The Scotsman, featured on Australian TV’s The Comedy Channel, hosted a sellout standup tour of Croatia, won Canada’s annual Improvaganza Tournament, and completed 2 UK national tours supporting cult Heavy Metal Comic Steve Hughes.
First stepping onto a standup stage in June 1998, Sully's talent gained instant recognition as he won his first national standup award less than 12 months later. 9 years on he’s featured in four seasons of New Zealand’s award winning TV standup showcase 'Pulp Comedy', been nominated for the NZ Comedy Industry's supreme award by the NZ Comedy Trust, and nominated by his fellow performers for the title of NZ's Best MC.

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.
