Hilarity Bites Comedy Club are determined to bring great comedy to the North East. Bringing some of the country’s sharpest comics to a litany of venues across the North, their latest endeavour at Bishop Auckland Town Hall on Friday 17th June is no exception.

Since storming his way to the final of Britain’s Got Talent, Daliso Chaponda has stayed in the public eye in a way very few contestants do. The Malawian stand-up leapt into the nations eyeline when he became a 2017 finalist, with his cheeky routines poking fun at the differences between African and British culture. The hilarious comic has refused to slow down since his time on the show, with his career ascending to remarkable heights; appearing on shows such as QI, the writer stars in his own hit Radio 4 show, Citizen of Nowhere and has just filmed two separate stand-up specials, ready to be released over the course of the next year.

The comedian is no stranger to topical news stories, frequently satirising the crazy world of the political and playfully twisting it into something non threatening and teaseable. Having just completed the majority of his Apocalypse Not Now tour, the comedian is a well oiled machine that is determined to make you laugh. 

Daliso Chaponda performs at Bishop Auckland Town Hall on Friday 17th June.
