Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Jonny Awsum, Peter Brush, and host Will Duggan
2017 Britain's Got Talent semi-finalist
A comedic whirlwind, Jonny Awsum has a special feel-good brand of musical comedy. He is the gag slinging guitar hero - audience members don’t just leave entertained, they leave as fans.
In 2017 Jonny was broadcast to huge acclaim on the nation’s biggest-rating ITV show, Britain’s Got Talent. Performing alongside Ant & Dec, Jonny won a standing ovation from the theatre audience, a unanimous vote of approval from the judges and was seen by 11 million TV viewers. Jonny made it all the way to the Live Semi-Finals, where he performed a musical extravaganza with David Walliams. Jonny loved the whole experience, his profile recieved a well earned boost, and his performances on the show have been viewed more than 30 million times on YouTube.
Jonny has been traversing the UK and indeed the world, armed with an impressive arsenal of jokes and his trusty guitar. He’s a must for comedy clubs, as his crowd-pleasing set sees Jonny regularly ending his sets to standing ovations and demands of an encore.

A highly distinctive performer and deft writer of finely crafted jokes, Peter Brush has clocked up an ever-increasing amount of respect in his first few years on the comedy circuit. With his slight, bespectacled frame and scruffy hair, Brush unassumingly takes the stage before consummately conquering it with an arsenal of razor sharp quirky one-liners and peerlessly original routines, all delivered in an amusingly awkward fashion.
Peter has already been a finalist in a variety of local and national comedy competitions including the BBC New Comedy Award 2013, as well as winning the Harrogate Comedian of the Year 2012. He has also written for Radio 4 and supported Arthur Smith during his 2013 tour.

Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner 2014 (Panel Prize for Funz & Gamez)
