Sully O'Sullivan & Penella Mellor
Coming to Hilarity Bites at The Cornerhouse in Crook on May 25th 2017:
Sully O'Sullivan has been declared a highlight of the New Zealand International Comedy Festival by The NZ Herald, a highlight of the Glasgow International Comedy Festival by The Scotsman, featured on Australian TV’s The Comedy Channel, hosted a sellout standup tour of Croatia, won Canada’s annual Improvaganza Tournament, and completed 2 UK national tours supporting cult Heavy Metal Comic Steve Hughes.
First stepping onto a standup stage in June 1998, Sully's talent gained instant recognition as he won his first national standup award less than 12 months later. 9 years on he’d featured in four seasons of New Zealand’s award winning TV standup showcase 'Pulp Comedy', been nominated for the NZ Comedy Industry's supreme award by the NZ Comedy Trust, and nominated by his fellow performers for the title of NZ's Best MC.
“Amazing” - NME
“A blast of hilarity” - Manchester Evening News
“A wicked sense of humour” - BBC
Penella Mellor is not a good grown up but she is a multi award winning comedian who is taking over the comedy world with her delightfully dark material.
Named Nando’s Comedian of the Year and champion of the coveted Beat the Frog World Series title in 2013. Finalist in The Amused Moose Laugh Off competition and Semi finalist in the BBC New Comedy Awards in 2014. Penella was also nominated for The Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year Award in 2015.
Original, dark, effortless. Think Mary Poppins meets Kill Bill.
“Top Comic in waiting” - Chortle
“One of the most exciting newcomers around” - Jason Manford
“You should see Mellor on the telly before very long” - Northern Soul
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
