Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. David Hadingham, Rory O’Hanlon, and host Will Duggan
Like a mad Phil Daniels, Dave Hadingham is a bulldog of a comedian, and the animal allegories don't stop there. In an affectionately, snarling, ranting and raving set, Dave is not afraid to make you laugh about anything (remember the dogs).
At his best in the live arena, Dave has been a professional comic since May 1996. Intense and anecdotal, he keeps audiences hooked right up to the last punchline as he presents his unique and often warped view of everyday life.
This gravel-voiced comic combines supremely controlled delivery with inimitable facial contortions as he cracks some of the best handmade gags in the business.
Dave is a highly-regarded regular on the nationwide comedy circuit, headlining at all of the biggest clubs in the UK and also performing at resorts across Europe.
“ranting and raving comic genius” - The Guardian
“Hilariously funny with notable precision and charisma” - The Scotsman
Having started his career in Dublin, award winning Irish stand-up comedian and actor Rory O’ Hanlon is a firm favourite at comedy clubs across the UK and Ireland. Described by Chortle as having “presence, poise and timing” and by the Irish Times as having “a joke every 30 seconds”, his rapid fire delivery regularly has audiences crying with laughter.
A regular face on Irish TV, Rory has been seen on RTE’s New Comedy Awards, Republic of Telly and alongside Des Bishop in Under the Influence. He is also a veteran of stage performing with 7 consecutive solo shows at Edinburgh Fringe, including performing at The Stand’s ‘Best of Irish’ show, as well as recent appearances at both Glasgow and Cardiff Comedy Festivals.
Rory is also known internationally, having performed all over the world, from Moscow to Berlin, Monte Carlo to Brussels, and many places in between. In 2016 Rory headed off to Australia, where he performed at the prestigious Perth Comedy Festival.
