Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Eddy Brimson, Simon Lomas, and host Lou Conran
Since turning to comedy in 1999, Eddy Brimson has well and truly established himself on the live circuit and is regarded by some as one of the leading headline comics in British comedy and the world. His career has even taken him from Dundee to Dubai!
To say Eddy has a colourful past is something of an understatement. A self-confessed former football hooligan before turning his hands to better use as a writer and comedian, Eddy has written a host of amusing anecdotal books, penned and hosted a top three selling video ‘Teargas and Tantrums’, and is also a regular “talking head’ for numerous radio and TV shows on subjects as diverse as football, dodgy builders and sexy baldness.
He’s appeared on television in many different guises from Hari Krishna in both Smith & Jones and Heartburn Hotel, to hard-nosed Villain in Eastenders, where he turned over Frank Butchers car lot! Other appearances include Absolutely Fabulous, The Thin Blue Line and Hale & Pace, The Bill, Silent Witness, Casualty, Between The Lines and the HBO movie The Infiltrator where he played a leading gang member.
Eddy is also a regular radio contributor to shows on BBC Radio 5 and Talksport and also a prolific writer, having penned seven best-selling books. With sales topping 160,000, Eddy has built himself a cult following among British and European football fans. In short, this is one gifted and hilarious performer.

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.

(No, no one else has heard of it either).
Lou's comedy career started back in the mid 90's, doing improv comedy with various groups in and around London. This has continued into the naughties with her move to Manchester, where she began her stand-up career in 2005. Having made the final of several new-act competitions in the mid naughties, she has continued to gig at many of the biggest clubs in the country as both an act and a compere. Lou is also a founder member of the Smirking Room comedy clubs in Manchester & Leeds where she comperes regularly.
