Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Tom Houghton, Paul ‘Silky’ White, and host Rick Molland
Tom Houghton was previously 1/5th of comedy troupe "The Noise Next Door" and is now taking the comedy circuit by storm with his quick wit, charming persona and ludicrous comedy songs.
Regularly performing up and down the country and abroad, you may even have caught him on Channel Fours "First Dates Hotel", or at his sell-out debut Edinburgh Fringe show, which went on tour in early 2018.
Strap in and be prepared to have your funny bones tickled and your levels of decency questioned by one of the hottest new acts around.

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.

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.
