Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. George Egg, Markus Birdman, and host Tom Houghton
Wildly brandishing the worlds' second largest briefcase containing a battery of ridiculous props, George bounds onto the stage to perform one of the most original, interesting, innovative, and sweetly whimsical comedy performances you are ever likely to see. A true cross between modern alternative stand-up comedy and old-school music hall variety.
George Egg has been a professional stand-up comedian for the last two decades. He has an extremely successful solo show with which he has toured in Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, Spain, Austria, France, Hong Kong, New Zealand and even India, as well as extensively in the United Kingdom both on the stage and on the television. More recently George has been the support act for Lee Mack, Micky Flanagan, and Jack Dee.
“A hugely entertaining variety turn” - The Guardian
“It is refreshing to encounter a performer who really is unique” - The Telegraph
“a genius... he is the friendly face of anarchy, the anarchic face of food and the foodie face of comedy” - Scotland on Sunday
Markus Birdman is one of British comedy's most experienced and well-travelled performers. In demand all over the UK and abroad, Markus is a veteran of the Edinburgh Fringe with many solo shows to his credit and headliner status at all the top clubs.
He's performed at the Melbourne, Adelaide, and Perth Comedy Festivals and was nominated by the New Zealand Comedy Guild for Best International Guest.
His international gig list would give Michael Palin a run for his money, with shows in Singapore, The Netherlands, Qatar, Bahrain, Austria, Spain, France, Norway, Sweden, Singapore, Switzerland, Finland, Cyprus and India to name a few.
Not to be missed, catch him in the UK before he jets off again.
“Delightfully comic. Controversial, personal and wickedly punchy” - The List
“A consummate comic... energetic, engaging, thought-provoking and funny” - The Stage
“Engagingly mixes the silly and the downright wrong” - Chortle
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.
