Danny Posthill & Phil Pagett
Coming to Hilarity Bites at The Cornerhouse in Crook on March 30th 2017:
Replacing Archie Maddocks
Britain's Got Talent finalist Danny Posthill’s career began at the young age of 16, making people laugh with hilarious impressions at his school talent show. Since then, comedy became Danny’s passion.
Skilled with a versatile act that caters for all audiences, Danny offers unbeatable stand up and a range of impressions such as Billy Connolly, Jimmy Carr, and Lee Evans, to guarantee an unforgettable night of laughter.
Danny has performed all around the world, from the Mediterranean to South America, and is gaining recognition on the UK circuit as one of the most promising British comedians.
“Impressionist Danny Posthill brings a bevy of other characters with him including Billy Connolly, David Beckham, Gary Barlow, Michael McIntyre, John Bishop, Alan Carr – and is funny in his own right too” - Richard Batson, EDP24
“Effortless performer of the highest quality” - Joke Club Comedy Clubs
“What a talented comedian” - Tim Vine
Phil Pagett is a one-liner comedian and joke-writer, described by Mock the Week's Gary Delaney as "one of the country's best new gag writers".
Hailing from Birmingham, and with a set comprised solely of killer one-liners, Phil's ability to craft and deliver a gag has made him a popular addition to any comedy night since he started out in comedy in early 2009. A quickfire gag-merchant in the tradition of Stewart Francis, Milton Jones and Emo Philips, Phil's act was described by Funhouse Comedy as "an unusual routine of, smartly crafted and vastly diverse one-liners that takes his audiences on an amusingly clever ride".
“One of the country's best new gag writers” - Gary Delaney
“Fantastic one-liners - One To Watch” - Nottingham Comedy Festival
“We were very, very impressed when we first saw Phil, he's a natural stand-up whose dedication to the one-liner pays off by the bucket load” - Abbcom Comedy
MC Aaron Twitchen
Aaron Twitchen is a stand up, actor, aerialist, and living stereotype.
As well as featuring on BBC Radio 4, he was listed in Metro's top 5 RomComs and has provided tour support for Luisa Omielan. He has also been releasing his sketch series, DiscoBlonde, in weekly instalments, and in its first six weeks it has enjoyed upwards of eighteen thousand views.
Away from comedy, Aaron has supported bands at music festivals, and is an accomplished stage actor and improviser. Unusually, he is also a trained circus act, concentrating particularly on aerial skills and trapeze work, which has allowed him to tour circus theatres throughout the country and teach young people.
“Twitchen's a terrific host, kind and self-deprecating with plenty of catty put-downs” - The Skinny
“Twitchen is an assured stand-up and navigates both his material and his venue with style... He is a flexible improviser, in tune with the spirit of live comedy” - Broadway Baby
“Hilarious, warm, energetic and capable of busting some serious moves. Twitchen is a quadruple threat” - The Skinny
