a monthly comedy club, at the sun hotel in hitchin
While 21st September’s Sun Hotel Hitchin Mostly Comedy with REGINALD D HUNTER has been officially sold out since July, there’s still a good chance of snapping up return tickets on the night.
Hunter is one of the UK comedy scene’s best-known performers and is a regular on such primetime TV shows as Have I Got News For You, QI, 8 Out Of 10 Cats and Never Mind The Buzzcocks. He was born in Albany in Georgia in 1969 and initially travelled to the UK at the age of 27 to study acting at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, before becoming a comedian after performing his first open spot as a dare and then turning his attention from acting to stand-up. Since then, his career has taken in countries as far afield as Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, South Africa and America, and seen him perform in such prestigious locations as London’s West End and Sydney Opera House.
He is one of the few comics to be nominated for Edinburgh Fringe’s prestigious comedy awards (then Perrier’s) for three consecutive years, from 2002 to 2004.
Scottish comic NEIL McFARLANE joins Hunter on the bill. Neil started his career in Scotland 16 years ago, where he remains a regular act at their highly-regarded Stand Comedy Clubs in Glasgow & Edinburgh. He reached the Scottish regional final of the BBC New Comedy Awards in 2001, came third in the Scottish Comedian of the Year competition in 2006 and was a finalist at Jongleurs’ Comic Idol in 2012. This will be Neil’s first appearance at Mostly Comedy in five years.
The gig will be emceed by Mostly Comedy’s custodians: the “polished, natural comedians” (Camden Fringe Voyeur) DOGGETT & EPHGRAVE. Doors open at 7:30pm, with the first act on at 8:00pm. A waiting list will be taken on the door from 7:15pm on the night, with any returns distributed just before 8:00pm on a first-come, first-served basis.
