Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Emmanuel Sonubi, Paul McCaffrey, and host Rick Molland
London based Emmanuel Sonubi has only been on the comedy circuit for what fills like five minutes and he’s already garnering himself a reputation as “THE one to watch out for".
An ex-bouncer and failed contestant of ‘The Worlds Strongest Man’, Emmanuel was born and bred in the East End of London where he extracts most of his hilarious interactions with the vibrant cockneys and reprobates he has encountered. Now a father of two, he has a wealth of material of playing pranks with his kids as well as his awful parenting skills.
Since 2015, Emmanuel has rocketed through the ranks, regularly playing prestigious clubs in the UK such as The Comedy Store, as well as playing internationally and being hand-selected by Jason Manford to support him on his 2018 arena tour. `
“A new talent at the door of stand-up, his name's down and he's definitely coming in” - Russell Kane
“I've only seen this guy destroy rooms” - Seann Walsh
“Emmanuel is so incredibly funny, and I'm not just saying that because I'm scared of him” - Joel Dommett
In recent years Paul McCaffrey has appeared on major UK tours with two of Britain’s foremost stand ups. Sean Lock on his Keep It Light tour 2016-2018 and Kevin Bridges on his Brand New Tour 2018 playing to more than half a million people nationwide to great critical acclaim.
As seen on Impractical Jokers (BBC3), Russell Howards Good News (BBC3), Stand up Central (Comedy Central). An accomplished radio presenter and guest, Paul has recently been heard on: talkSPORT, Absolute’s The Alternative Vote and Rob Beckett’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Football, and BBC Radio 2’s Russell Kane’s Whistlestop Tour. He also presents The Paul McCaffrey Show every Saturday morning on Jack FM.
Paul is an award-winning comedian (Latitude New Act of the Year, London Paper New Act of the Year) and headlines at the biggest comedy clubs in the country. He has performed five critically acclaimed Edinburgh shows, as well as appearing at major music festivals, such as Reading, Leeds, V Festival, Bestival, and Latitude.
“Born to be a comic” - The Scotsman
“Gut-bustingly hilarious” - GQ
“Charm, charisma and success written all over him” - Evening Standard
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.
“no-holds-barred comedy” - Edinburgh Evening News
“perfect for the role of compere” - Three Weeks
“ audacious” - The Scotsman
This show will also feature a newer act in the middle.
Note: Line-ups are subject to change in extreme, and unavoidable, circumstances.
