Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Andrew Stanley, Andrew Lawrence, and host Pete Otway
Having performed worldwide at the Montreal, Australian and Edinburgh Comedy Festivals and becoming a regular fixture on the Kilkenny Cat Laughs Calendar, Andrew Stanley is one of the top comics working the worldwide comedy circuit today. Whether it's performing as resident MC in numerous clubs around Ireland, one of which is the legendary Comedy Cellar in Dublin, or as a quality act in his own right Andrew is always high energy and quick witted enough to keep audiences thoroughly entertained.
Andrew has travelled to the Adelaide Fringe Festival twice, performed at the Melbourne, Sydney and New Zealand Comedy Festivals and has been invited to the prestigious Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal. He also travelled to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2006 where he teamed up with Australian comic Damian Clark in a show entitled 'I Dare Ya' (Great late night fun - Independent On Sunday) which was then turned into a highly successful TV show on RTE2 in 2007, still the highest rated debut comedy show on Irish TV.
He returned to Edinburgh in 2008 armed with 2 shows – His first debut solo show and his own brand of late night entertainment, Andrew Stanley’s Comedy Mish Mash, which returned the following year after receiving rave reviews.
“Natural and genuinely funny” - Galway Independent
“Hugely entertaining” - Kilkenny People
“Likeable, laid back comic” - Limerick Leader
BBC New Comedy Award Winner 2004
Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer Nominee 2006
Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee 2007
Chortle Award Best Headline Act Nominee 2010
With six national tours behind him, as well as multiple comedy award wins and nominations, appearances on Live at the Apollo, Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow, and Stand-Up For The Week (where he was a series regular), and several Radio 4 series, Andrew Lawrence is one of the most celebrated stand-up comedians of his generation.
Described as the 'Leonard Cohen of comedy', Andrew Lawrence is the master of his game. Andrew's live performances have gained international recognition as he has played at all the top comedy festivals enjoying mass critical acclaim. He has twice performed at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and at the 2009 Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal.
Also a talented actor, Andrew was a regular for three series on the BBC3 hit show Ideal playing the role of Marco.
“Superbly intelligent, highly articulate and deeply sour” - The Spectator
“Anyone who gives this spikily inventive performer the time of day will realise they're in the presence of an A-list talent” - The Guardian
“... a hard act to follow” - Chortle
Since starting to perform in 2010, Pete Otway has quickly gained momentum, establishing himself as an extremely strong new act. As comfortable and confident as an MC as he is an act, he is booked regularly to do both, and was a recent finalist in the 2012 BBC New Comedy Awards.
With an affable and conversational style, mixed with an energetic stage manner and original writing, Pete is quickly making a name for himself on the UK circuit, and is certainly one to watch.
“Devastatingly funny” - Chortle
“Amiable, cheeky classic stand-up” - Liverpool Echo
“An amazing comedy talent, and we are making sure we are making sure we follow his every move in his ever rising career” - Crispy Comedy Club
This show will also feature a newer act in the middle.
