Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Silky, Alex Hylton, and host John Scott

Show details:

Silky

Paul 'Silky' White

Silky has been a full time comedian since 1997. He did his first gig in 1994, and his fourth gig (the final of the 1995 BBC New Comedy Awards alongside Lee Mack, Daniel Kitson and Julian Barratt) was shown on BBC1’s Stand-Up Show. Other awards he has failed to win include the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year (prize-winning runner-up 2000), the Liverpool Echo Arts and Entertainment Award (the only person to be nominated twice: always the sodding bridesmaid).

Silky has performed internationally, including gigs in China, the Philippines, the Gulf, Singapore, the US, the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and all over Europe, including at the Glastonbury Festival, where no-one lobbed bottles of wee, much to his relief. He performed at the 2004 God’s Kitchen Global Gathering, the 2005 Big Bang at Santa Pod, and in the houseband for the Kilkenny Festival. Silky is also a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe, where he plays to full houses every year at The Stand Comedy Club.


“...a very, very funny fella... just brilliant” - John Bishop

“One of the comedy circuit’s most popular headliners... on the cusp of superstardom” - Yorkshire Life

“Among the best of the circuit... born funny” - City Life

“Always brilliant” - Metro

 

Alex Hylton

Alex Hylton

'Best Show' Leicester Comedy Festival 2020 - Winner

Alex Hylton is one of the fastest rising comics in the Midlands and a presenter and writer for BlueMoonRisingTv. A youthful, energetic new act with relatable anecdotes of adolescence, mixing in one-liners and a smudge of surrealism to create a likable and unique style, Alex is tipped by many to go all the way.


“Hylton takes charge of a room, fluent and funny storytelling is second nature to this comic” - Wee Review

“Well crafted, vivid storytelling performed with commitment” - Three Weeks

“A hilarious abundance of energy” - The Recs

 

John Scott

John Scott

Multi-award winning Scotsman John Scott took his first tentative steps into stand up in 1999 and just 3 months after his first appearance found himself doing his first run at the Edinburgh Festival.

Since then, John has appeared at a further five festivals, and returned this year with a brand new show. In the meantime, he picked up the Spike Milligan award for new talent in 2003 and then paired that up with the Take the Mic award at the 2010 Edinburgh Fringe - the richest prize in UK comedy.

Resident in Newcastle, he now finds himself a favourite with audiences around the country as he headlines and MCs at all the major clubs around the UK and has gigged as far afield as the Middle East.


“A genuinely gifted comedian” - Adelaide Rocks

“Always plays a blinder. Never hits a dry patch. People were literally in tears of laughter” - The Observer

“Confidently told hilarious tales of class-based woe, nothing missed the mark in a superb set where every story was expertly crafted before being subverted with a killer punch line” - The Sun

 

This show will also feature a newer act in the middle.

 

Note: Line-ups are subject to change in extreme, and unavoidable, circumstances.
