The Students’ Union is delighted to announce that Comedy Night is returning to The Hangar!
Thursday 29 November will see some of the UK comedy circuits finest talents joining us for two hours of laugh out loud entertainment.
Host Comedian – Tony Simpson
Tony is full of energy and improvisation, a strong compere who can interact with any kind of audience. Finding fun, energy, and positivity he loves nothing more than taking the audience by the hand and dragging them along.
Tony has written and performed in two sell out Comedy Festival Shows on matters such as being ‘Cheeky’ and why we all need a bit of ‘cheekiness’ in our lives. And a show all about adrenaline called ‘Adrenaline Junkie’ in which Tony tells the tale of a year in his life of competing in the British Rally Championships while also performing stand up gigs as he travelled around.
Opening Comedian – Peter Brush
A highly distinctive performer and deft writer of finely crafted jokes. Peter Brush unassumingly takes the stage with his slight bespectacled frame and scruffy hair, before consummately conquering it with an arsenal of razor sharp quirky one-liners and peerlessly original routines, all delivered in an amusingly awkward fashion.
Peter has been a finalist in a variety of local and national comedy competitions including the BBC New Comedy Award 2013, as well as winning the Harrogate Comedian of the Year 2012. He has also written for BBC Radio 4’s ‘The News Quiz’, ‘The Show What You Wrote’ and ‘Newsjack’, and supported Arthur Smith during his 2013 tour.
Headline Comedian – Jack Gleadow
Jack Gleadow is an award winning ‘one man comedy variety show’ from Hull. His show is an homage to the golden era of variety and includes sounds, funny stories, jokes, and sometimes even a scooter. Gleadow recently took home the prestigious title of Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2018. The competition has a star making formula as previous winners include Josh Widecombe, Jason Manford, Jonny Vegas, and Romesh Ranganathan.
Other recent awards under his belt include Great Yorkshire Fringe Comedian of the Year and the Amused Moose National New Comic. This new rising star in comedy travels all over the UK to perform, including the Latitude festival Comedy Stage and recent tour support for Lloyd Griffith.
