Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Larry Dean, Jack Carroll, and host Katie Mulgrew
Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee 2018
Larry Dean was crowned Scottish Comedian Of The Year when he was 23, and since then his star has continued to rise. His 2015 debut Edinburgh Fringe show Out Now! received both widespread critical acclaim and a nomination for the Foster’s Comedy Award for Best Newcomer. After its success in Edinburgh, January 2016 saw Larry take the show to London for a run of packed-out performances at the Soho Theatre. He then took the show to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival where he was one of the standout performers on the Allstars Supershow Opening Night Gala.
In 2016 Larry returned to Edinburgh with his eagerly awaited new show Farcissist, for which he won the Amused Moose Comedy Award for Best Show. He subsequently took the show on a UK-wide tour and a run at the 2017 Melbourne Comedy Festival. Fandan, Larry’s most recent show, enjoyed a sold-out run at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe and was one of the British Comedy Guide’s Top 10 Best Reviewed Shows this year. Larry also performed the show at Christchurch Buskers Festival and Perth Fringeworld in February 2018 ahead of his UK tour in March, and then thereafter at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
2017 saw Larry Dean make his debut appearance on BBC1’s Live at the Apollo and new Comedy Central UK show Roast Battle. Larry previously appeared twice on BBC Presents: Best of the Edinburgh Festival and Live From the Comedy Store for Comedy Central UK and has also performed on ITV2’s Elevenish and BBC Radio 4’s Don’t Make Me Laugh.
“Dean has the easy charm of an arena comic, and the high joke rate too” - The Guardian

“A winning combination of being daft and being a smart aleck” - Chortle
Jack became an overnight stand-up sensation after reaching the final of Britain’s Got Talent in 2013. His first audition on the ITV show has received over 20 million views on YouTube so far. Jack eventually came second on the show at just 14 years old and has since worked with the likes of Jason Manford and Vic Reeves, while also performing stand-up on shows such as ITV1’s Sunday Night At The Palladium and It’s Been A Funny Old Week. Most recently, he performed on the world famous series Live At The Apollo. He’s also appeared on CBBC shows such as The Dog Ate My Homework and 4 O’Clock Club.
Jack, whose cerebral palsy is often the subject of his act, was awarded a Pride of Britain Award in 2012 in the “Teenager of Courage” category. Jack opened for Jason Manford at three of his tour shows in 2010 as well as performing with him in 2013, and opening Jason’s tour show First World Problems at London’s Hammersmith Apollo. Jack has performed at various clubs and live events across the country, cementing his place on the national comedy circuit. Summer 2016 saw Jack perform as part of the Pleasance Comedy Reserve, his debut appearance at the Edinburgh Fringe.

“A revelation” - The Telegraph
“He’s saying what no one else can; it’s hilarious” - The Guardian
Lancashire comedian, Katie Mulgrew really likes making people laugh. It’s kinda her thing. She gigs all over the country in comedy clubs doing just that, to mostly success. She also makes her Mum laugh loads.
She’s done lots of lovely things whilst being a comedian like being tour support for The Boy With Tape On His Face and Vikki Stone. She has written for The News Quiz and you can hear her dulcet Northern tones featured on the BBC Radio 2 documentary series, The History of British Comedy. She got to be very silly indeed on a couple of episodes of the CBBC show, The Dog Ate My Homework. She recently co-hosted a Tv pilot on ITV2 called Lovefix.
Katie has performed three solo stand up shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and is currently working on her fourth show when she’s not consumed with trying to keep the human she has made alive.
“Mulgrew is an engaging, likeable presence who doesn’t struggle to hold the audience’s attention. This is a well-structured thoughtful show.. radiating warmth” - Chortle
“charmingly honest... delightfully tender and thoroughly entertaining” - The Skinny
“...honest, un-cynical comedy that’s rough around the ages but tremendously warm” - Three Weeks
