Alfie Brown & Cal Halbert
Coming to Hilarity Bites at The Cornerhouse in Crook on April 27th 2017:
Alfie Brown's firebrand style of comedy has been forged from years of pushing boundaries and experimentation.
A natural stage presence combined with explosive material makes for a thrilling performance every time he hits the stage. Constantly evolving and striving for ways to innovate, Alfie can move from hour-long idea driven shows to tight sets in various clubs effortlessly, and has been seen on BBC, Channel 4, and Channel 5 over the past few years.
“Alfie Brown has evolved into an extraordinarily impressive comic” - The Scotsman
“All the potential to be one of this country’s best comics: perceptive, provocative, political, and playful. And, most of all, damn funny” - Chortle
“Thrilling... extremely funny... a distinctive dissenting voice” - Evening Standard
Deemed 'the new generation of comedy' by Michael McIntyre, Cal Halbert has performed from local comedy clubs to the London Palladium, Britain's Got Talent to Good Morning Britain and voiced for YouTube to the BBC.
Well known as an impressionist, Halbert is one half of 'The Mimic Men', the UK's only impressionist double act! The Mimic Men appeared on Britain's Got Talent in 2016, gaining four yeses accompanied by a standing ovation by the judges, audience and Ant and Dec.
“Very good” - Simon Cowell
“Uncanny imitations” - The Sun
“Impersonator genius” - Sunderland Echo
MC Rob Mulholland
One of the fastest rising new comedians on the circuit, Rob Mulholland fell into comedy after finding a flyer looking for acts to appear at Harrogate Comedy Festival on the ground outside his front door. In the two years since, he has clocked up a huge amount of gigs all over the country ranging from tiny pubs to massive theatres (even performing to 2,000 bikers at an outdoor festival!), and can now be seen most weekends in some of the biggest comedy clubs in the country.
Just as at home as an act or compere, Rob mixes cheeky audience banter with his intricately woven, gag-packed stories; adding a touch of the absurd to his askance glance at everyday life. Rob is 17 feet tall, made of steel and can jump over a mini cooper from a standing start.
Rob is a previous Hilarity Bites New Act of the Year, and after finishing runner-up in the 2016 Great Yorkshire Fringe New Act of the Year competition has awarded himself the title of "Yorkshire’s Funniest Non-Musical Comedian". He was one half of the anarchic, late-night, yurt-based show #BlurredMinds at the 2015 Edinburgh festival and premiered his first solo show ‘Champion of Comedy’ at the Leicester Comedy Festival in 2016.
“Very, very tall and equally as talented” - Time Out
“Great delivery and a confident swagger... A riot” - Lancashire Evening Telegraph
“Perfect delivery... had the audience bursting into spontaneous applause” - York Press
