Since it’s the season to be jolly an’ that, what could be better than enjoying some top class comedic action surrounded by the finest cheese and superb local brews? Trick question. The answer is, of course: nothing.

Teesside chortle peddlers Hilarity Bites present another of their New Acts New Material nights on Thursday 8th December at the excellent Hartlepool establishment Hops & Cheese. As the title suggests, the night enables comedians to break out their brand new stuff on an unsuspecting audience, and also gives a platform to up and coming talent too.

Topping the bill is affable award-winning comic Pete Otway, whose energetic stage manner and original approach has seen him travel the world, while his dulcet tones are often heard on various radio stations as he hosts shows on BBC Radio 4 Extra and performs stand-up on BBC Radio 2 and Radio 4. Also joining the bill is Ant Dewson, whose silly songs and mediocre piano playing will still have you giggling, and North East favourite Lee Kyle who fuses daftness with genuine off-the-cuff wit to devastating effect. Plus, expect support slots from several new acts into the bargain.
