Hilarity Bites Comedy

October 22 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Nick Doody, Ben Van der Velde, Support to be confirmed, and host Hal Branson

In October the wonderful Nick Doody headlines for us, following a stint supporting Dave Gorman on tour. Nick Doody has been performing comedy since the 90s when, as a student, he got off to a pretty good start by supporting the legendary Bill Hicks, at Bill’s request.

A little later, Nick was a finalist in Channel 4’s ‘So You Think You’re Funny?’ competition. Since then he has performed all over the world: Ireland, France, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, The Netherlands, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Estonia… You get the idea.

He was the first British comedian to perform in Croatia. Nick has appeared on various radio and TV shows, and is also much in demand as a writer. He has penned jokes for Joan Rivers, Lenny Henry, Dame Edna Everage, and an uncomfortable number of Mock The Week regulars. Joining Nick is acclaimed improviser and stand-up Ben Van der Velde, who is a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe, and has previously worked as warm-up for Deal or No Deal, with the show hosted by Hal Branson.
