Would you like to bring comedy to an audience of your own?

Sarah Millican Hilarity BitesPerhaps you would like to book a comedian for a one-off show, a charity event, a sporting encounter or an after-dinner speaker? Hilarity Bites has experience in all of these fields, along with contacts with all of the biggest names on the UK and international comedy circuit, and some of the best newcomers too.

Since Hilarity Bites started booking comedy in June 2006 we have worked with many different venues, helping to source comedians for charity shows and one-off events as well as booking regular comedy shows throughout the North-East. Not only do we do this, but we always supply the very best acts possible for any budget - whether it be an open-mic night with a professional compere introducing new talent, or a night of comedy featuring the top TV stars of the moment, Hilarity Bites can do it all.

An indication of the quality of acts that we can provide can be seen from our track record with regards to the Edinburgh Comedy Awards - well over half of the acts nominated for the main award since 2006 have performed for Hilarity Bites (including three of the four winners) along with over a dozen of the best newcomer nominees and familiar TV names such as Reginald D. Hunter, Kevin Bridges, Jon Richardson, Sarah Millican and John Bishop.

So if you want to book some comedy then get in touch with us by emailing info@hilaritybites.co.uk with details of your requirements and we'll get in touch with you to discuss your requirements further.

 

Testimonials

"The Vibe Awards is an annual award evening that has been celebrating the achievements of young people in Darlington for 19 years and never before have we hired an entertainer to compere the night. Hilarity Bites were easy to approach, helpful and listened to all our requirements taking away all our stress and worries. We listened to their advice and were not disappointed as Patrick Monahan was excellent as the host making it a special night for all involved. The atmosphere he created was electric, the way he engaged with young people on stage was brilliant and his 'banter' with the audience kept everyone entertained. The feedback this year has been outstanding and we are already planning the 2015 Awards and can't wait to work with the Hilarity Bites team again!" - Joanne Shutt - Vibe Awards, Darlington

"Alfie Moore was great at our event. His set was perfect for the event, and the fact that he was a serving police officer really added to this as there were many senior police officers present. Very, very funny! Many thanks for organising this for us." - Kate Jeffels - Best Bar None Awards, Darlington

"Thank you for picking such a great line up for our Charity Comedy Night. This was the first time I have ever rented entertainment so I didn't know what to expect, and I was very pleased, as were the other 120 troops and partners in attendance. MC Dave Twentyman did an absolutely wonderful job of feeling out the audience and tailoring the act to suit the crowd. Together the whole comedy team, Gary Delaney and Steffen Peddie made the night a great success and we will be using Hilarity Bites again in the future." - Daniel Friend – RAF Leeming, 90 Signals Unit, Ents Manager

"Carl Hutchinson went down a storm at Ritchie Humphreys' Testimonial Dinner. Dealing with Hilarity Bites was easy and professional and took one of the many hassles away from organising a big event" - Samantha Lee, Publicity Seekers Ltd. Director

"Working with Hilarity Bites has been a revelation... their ability to get some of the best acts around, deal with them professionally and put on great shows on a regular basis has worked incredibly well and consequently developed a great audience base in Whitby" - Jim McLaughlin, Musicport Director

"Hilarity Bites have been extremely helpful and supportive to the Butterwick Hospice – they work hard to make sure everything runs smoothly. Very professional and passionate about what they do – highly recommended!" - Julie Nisbet, Fundraiser, Butterwick Hospice
