Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Micky P. Kerr, Simon Lomas & host Danny Deegan
Micky P. Kerr
Britain's Got Talent finalist 2018
Leeds-based comedian and social commentator, Micky P Kerr is a breath of fresh air on the live comedy circuit. Fusing together music, spoken word and comedy, with his tongue often planted firmly in his cheek, Kerr has been described as the bastard spawn of John Cooper Clarke.
Already a familiar face on the live music circuit, Micky turned his hand to stand-up comedy in 2013 and is rapidly becoming one to watch, proving to be a massive hit with audiences and bookers alike.
In the short time he has been appearing on the comedy circuit he has already reached the semi-finals of both the So You Think You’re Funny and the BBC New Act competitions. He was also recently crowned Harrogate Comedy Festival New Comedian of the Year.
2015 saw Micky record a live set for BBC Radio 1, working on a new sitcom about his previous life as a primary school teacher and recording his latest album of music and comedy, entitled Kerr in the Kerrmunity. In 2017 Micky performed his debut hour at the Edinburgh Fringe.

“Unlike some acts who are not funny then are funny, you are always funny” - Simon Cowell
“Leeds-based Kerr’s assured and relaxed mix of one-liners, poetry and songs certainly impressed” - Harrogate Advertiser

Winner - Nottingham Comedy Festival new Act of the Year 2017
Winner - Great Yorkshire Fringe New Comedian of the Year 2016
Winner - Nando’s New Comedian of the Year 2016
Despite only starting stand up in September 2015, Simon Lomas is already regarded as one of the most refreshing and exciting new acts on the circuit. In August 2017 he performed as part of Just The Tonic's prestigious Big Value Comedy Show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, after racking up a host of new act competition titles.
Definitely one to watch.
