Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Rob Rouse, Ray Bradshaw, and host Brennan Reece
Rob Rouse is a man who doesn't know the meaning of the word calm. Full of beans, Rob can't slow down, and why would he when he makes so many people laugh. Rob first made the leap into stand up comedy in the late 1990s, touring the university circuits. In 1998 he won the prestigious 'So You Think You're Funny' competition at the Edinburgh Festival.
As seen on Dave's One Night Stand, Celebrity Juice, 8 out of 10 Cats, The Friday Night Project, and much more, Rob is one of comedy’s most lively, loveable and dynamic performers.
Performing a rare club show, whilst in between tours, expect stories of his life as a father, his encounters with road-kill and his life as the beleaguered owner of the most spectacularly randy dog you’re ever likely to hear about...
“He’s a man with genuinely funny bones” - Sunday Times
“Rob Rouse is a born clown, a latter-day Stan Laurel” - Time Out
“Every single one of these everyday observations and shared recognitions is blown out of the mainstream by his electric-shock treatment of the material... You want to hug his brain for coming up with this stuff, even as you want to wash his mouth out with soap for saying it” - The Herald
Having made his comedy debut in September 2008, Ray has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting new acts on the comedy circuit. A two time Scottish Comedian of The Year finalist, Ray has travelled the lengths and breadths of the country telling jokes to anyone that will listen, making his name as an MC for various promoters.
Ray’s solo show, “I Dare Ray To…” has been performed to sell-out audiences at the Glasgow Comedy Festival in 2013 and 2014, and the Adelaide Comedy Festival and Edinburgh Festival in 2015. Ray has also been selected as tour support for several big name acts of late, and was the exclusive support for Ardal O’Hanlon’s 2014 tour of Scotland, as well as supporting Des Clarke on several tour dates.

Brennan Reece is a bright young comic from Manchester. His energetic and often awkward approach to life is captured in his fast paced, vividly painted, humorous stories. Despite him being a relative newcomer to the circuit his reputation is fast becoming that of a comic to look out for, and he has recently returned from performing at various festivals in Australia, following a run of gigs as part of the prestigious Pleasance Reserve at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Brennan has appeared on BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and at the prestigious Old Vic Theatre, London. He was named English Comedian of the Year in 2015, whilst he also was a winner on Sky One's Don't Stop Me Now. Elsewhere, he won the Beat The Frog World Series in 2010, was named Preston Comedian of the Year in 2011, and has also made the final of several other comedy competitions.
