Hilarity Bites Comedy Club£10.00
Steve Shanyaski, Rob Kemp, and host Lee Kyle
Our monthly comedy night at The Forum with Hilarity Bites Comedy Club with live stand up comedians.
This month we have Steve Shanyaski, Rob Kemp, and host Lee Kyle.
Endlessly charming, Steve’s inherent warmth and cheeky, roguish twinkle shines through his material. Within the first six months of his comedy career he made it through to the semi-finals of the BBC New Comedian of the Year, the North West Comedian of the Year Final, and later that year was booked to appear on the BBC7 Radio Showcase ‘Spanking New’. Since then he has gone from strength to strength, adding TV appearances such as ‘Jason Manford’s Comedy Rocks’ on ITV, and Comedy Central’s ‘Comedy Store Presents…’.
Combining surreal observations with wildly tangential imaginings, his off kilter set pieces have audiences fully immersed as he leads them, Pied Piperlike, down the charming avenues of his inner mind.
Rob Kemp is the “twisted genius” (The Sunday Times) behind 2017’s smash hit festival show The Elvis Dead. The show garnered rave reviews and accolades, won multiple awards, and secured Rob’s status as one of the most creative and original voices in comedy. He’s since performed The Elvis Dead around the country including a hit run at the Soho Theatre.
In his never ending quest not to have a proper job, Lee Kyle spent time as part of an all male Spice Girls tribute act before spending a decade as a professional wrestler.
Managing the difficult trick of being both odd and relatable, he did a show at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2013 that he heard was well received but he doesn’t read reviews because his psyche is too fragile to handle them so he isn’t totally sure what they said.
Armed with props and a rapid gag rate he cuts a confident, if off-beat figure on stage. His jokes veer between the clever and the silly and deliver more than their fair share of belly laughs.
