Brennan Reece & MC Lou Conran
Coming to Hilarity Bites at The Pot House in Hartlepool on June 15th 2017:
Best Newcomer (nominee), Edinburgh Comedy Festival 2016
English Comedian of the Year 2015
Best Show (nominee), Fringe World Australia
Brennan Reece is a bright young comic from Manchester. His energetic and often awkward approach to life is captured in his fast paced, vividly painted, humorous stories. Despite him being a relative newcomer to the circuit his reputation is fast becoming that of a comic to look out for, and he has recently returned from performing at various festivals in Australia, following a run of gigs as part of the prestigious Pleasance Reserve at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Brennan has appeared on BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and at the prestigious Old Vic Theatre, London. He was named English Comedian of the Year in 2015, whilst he also was a winner on Sky One's Don't Stop Me Now. Elsewhere, he won the Beat The Frog World Series in 2010, was named Preston Comedian of the Year in 2011, and has also made the final of several other comedy competitions.
“Rabble rousing. A triumph of performance” - Chortle
“A hilarious, rubber faced, promising young talent” - The Stage
“His baby faced rudeness is delightfully wrong” - The Journal
MC Lou Conran
Having trained as an actress, Lou has appeared in various guises on tele and in the theatre, including, Pressgang (ITV), Jo Brand Through the Cakehole (Channel 4), The Borrowers (National Tour), numerous productions for the Edinburgh Festival and the more challenging and ground breaking role of Sara Bear, for three long series, in CITV's, classic and memorable, the "Teddybears". (No, no one else has heard of it either).
Lou's comedy career started back in the mid 90's, doing improv comedy with various groups in and around London. This has continued into the naughties with her move to Manchester, where she began her stand-up career in 2005. Having made the final of several new-act competitions in the mid naughties, she has continued to gig at many of the biggest clubs in the country as both an act and a compere. Lou is also a founder member of the Smirking Room comedy clubs in Manchester & Leeds where she comperes regularly.
“A naturally funny comic, with a warm and dotty stage presence that helps endear her to an audience... Witty, naughty but most of all good fun, with a touch of the Victoria Wood about her” - XS Malarkey
“cracking stage presence and some good material” - Frog & Bucket
“a potty mouthed individual, who manages to get away with it, with a smile and a huge personality” - A teacher, Louise's Middle School, Buckinghamshire
This show will also feature support from several new acts, and established acts performing new material.
