Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Paul McCaffrey, Thomas Green, and host Rick Molland
In recent years Paul McCaffrey has appeared on major UK tours with two of Britain’s foremost stand ups. Sean Lock on his Keep It Light tour 2016-2018 and Kevin Bridges on his Brand New Tour 2018 playing to more than half a million people nationwide to great critical acclaim.
As seen on Impractical Jokers (BBC3), Russell Howards Good News (BBC3), Stand up Central (Comedy Central). An accomplished radio presenter and guest, Paul has recently been heard on: talkSPORT, Absolute’s The Alternative Vote and Rob Beckett’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Football, and BBC Radio 2’s Russell Kane’s Whistlestop Tour. He also presents The Paul McCaffrey Show every Saturday morning on Jack FM.
Paul is an award-winning comedian (Latitude New Act of the Year, London Paper New Act of the Year) and headlines at the biggest comedy clubs in the country. He has performed five critically acclaimed Edinburgh shows, as well as appearing at major music festivals, such as Reading, Leeds, V Festival, Bestival, and Latitude.

“Gut-bustingly hilarious” - GQ
“Charm, charisma and success written all over him” - Evening Standard
Thomas Green is an engaging story-teller, and is known for his face of elasticity and highly energetic stage presence.
A regular on the international festival circuit since 2012, his effervescent charisma and hilarious characterisations led to his nomination for Best Emerging Comedy at the 2013 Adelaide Fringe, and sold out shows in his Edinburgh debut in the same year.
Green has not only been lively on the festival circuit, but he's establishing himself on the UK circuit too following a stint hosting both breakfast and drive radio shows across 7 years on Fresh 92.7 in Adelaide.
“Green’s quick-witted exchanges and improvisation with audience members are truly impressive, clever and natural” - ★★★★ - The Advertiser
“Proof you don't need a gimmick to be great” - ★★★★ - The List
“Green used his contagious enthusiasm to have a sold-out crowd in stitches” - Rip It Up
Not many Englishmen can cut it as an MC in a Scottish Comedy Club - but that's exactly what Rick Molland does every weekend of the year.
An award winning film maker and former Scottish Comedian of the Year runner-up, having proven his comedy metal in some of the most formidable environments Scotland has to offer, including T in the Park, Rockness, and The Wickerman Festivals, Rick Molland is now resident compère at Edinburgh's Monkey Barrel Comedy Club.
“no-holds-barred comedy” - Edinburgh Evening News
“perfect for the role of compere” - Three Weeks
“ audacious” - The Scotsman
