Hilarity Bitesize

Hilarity Bitesize is a monthly night ran by Hilarity Bites which gives new acts the opportunity to perform in front of an audience, and existing acts the opportunity to try out new material. Not just restricted to comedy, six acts will perform up to ten minutes each.

Ray Bradshaw will be host for the evening, which will also feature house band Midway Arcadia, and a special headline slot from Chris Martin:

Chris is delighted to return to Darlington with his brand new show for 2012. He’ll explain how to wind up squirrels, show techniques to confuse a pervert and why not liking cheese can lead to violent abuse. As seen on Dave’s One Night Stand & tour support for Jack Whitehall & Pete Firman.
