Kevin Precious & MC Andy Fury
Coming to Hilarity Bites at The Ship Inn in Guisborough on April 11th 2017:
Kevin Precious has had something of a long and varied career in the business of show, making his first tentative foray into the world of entertainment as a teenage bass playing dirt bag in the working men's clubs in his native city of Hull.
Venturing South, he continued his musical adventures, and in the 1990s, Kevin set up a 'Pop Quiz' in a trendy boozer in Camden, which rapidly became laden with celebrities and culminated in him being asked to organise and compere the NME's first national pop quiz. It was these events that would later inspire a move into comedy. Sometime thereafter he took the plunge.
Combining comedy with time as a mature student, and later a full-time teacher, Kevin finally took the plunge to turn full-time in 2005, and has since toured throughout the UK and performed dates throughout Europe. Meanwhile, in 2008, he compered the ‘Loaded Lafta’ awards presenting awards to Jimmy Carr, Adam Buxton, Paul Kaye, and Harry Enfield, to name but a few.
“If he were any more laid back he'd fall over - we fell over laughing” - The Evening Standard
“Instantly recognisable stage presence and boundless wit” - Leicester Mercury
“Kevin's stage charisma and poise set him head and shoulders above the rest” - The Times
MC Andy Fury
Despite starting comedy out of “sheer boredom” just a few years ago, Andy Fury has impressed a lot of people in a short space of time with a wonderful mix of self-deprecating dark jokes and off the wall surrealism.
With a laidback stage presence that sometimes borders horizontal, he’s as hard-working as he is funny and winning the Hilarity Bites New Act Of The Year 2010 title has put Andy on the path to working at many of the best clubs in the country, wowing audiences the length and breadth of the UK.
“An absolute genius of a comedian” - BBC
“Brilliant... The next Pub Landlord of comedy” - Hexham Courant
“A very funny man with a big future ahead of him” - Corby Radio
