Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Chris Kent, Rahul Kohli, and host Lee Kyle

Show details:

Chris Kent

Chris Kent

Hailing from ‘The Rebel County’ (That’s Cork for anyone outside Ireland), Chris gave up the day job as an electrician to pursue his calling in comedy. He emerged onto the Irish comedy scene in 2009 after winning the Bulmers Nuttin’ But Funny competition.

Chris’s anecdotal stand up comedy has made him a firm favorite in Ireland and in the UK. Fresh from selling out a 2016 Irish tour, Chris became a regular at the Edinburgh Festival and has performed all over the world from Australia to America.

Chris has appeared on Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central on Comedy Central, was a guest panelist on RTE’s Next Year’s News, is a regular contributor to RTE radio, and has been hand-chosen to support a number of high profile acts including David O'Doherty, Dylan Moran, and Bill Burr.


“Breathes new life into anecdotal comedy” - ★★★★ The List

“Compelling storyteller, truly surprising, beautifully delivered” - The Scotsman

“Original, hilarious material. Among the best acts I’ve seen ” - ★★★★★ - The Mirror

 

Rahul Kohli

Rahul Kohli

Rahul Kohli is one of the fastest rising acts on the circuit; a young Geordie Asian man combining fierce political satire with surreal storytelling. In just a few short years, his debut solo show: Newcastle Brown Male gained critical acclaim at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival earning him a top pick of both BBC Radio 4 and the Huffington Post. It also gained him radio credits for BBC Radio 4's State of the Nation and BBC Asia Network's Big Asian Comedy Night.

On top of this he has gained writing credits for other Radio 4 shows, while performing at some of the biggest clubs around the country from the Stand up North to the Comedy Store down south.

In January 2017, Rahul became an award-winning comedian, winning the prestigious NATYS, formerly the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year Award.


“Dripping with erudite genius” - Fest Magazine

“Slick gag machine” - Chortle

“Kohli is not just performing for laughs; he is attempting to create some real art” - 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.
