HEADLINER: Ardal O’Hanlon

Ardal O’Hanlon needs no introduction. He’s known to the world from his

iconic role as Dougal in ‘Father Ted’, as well as countless other TV

appearances, from six series of ‘My Hero’ to ‘Doctor Who’. But his

first love was stand-up, and his unique brand of humour has won him

numerous awards, as well as touring to sell out audiences

internationally and topping the best-seller charts with stand-up DVDs.

The Hippodrome are delighted to welcome him to their stage.

WITH: David Armand (aka Johann Lippowitz)

David is an award-winning writer, comedian and actor with credits

across dozens of TV comedies. But he is perhaps best known as his

alter-ego Johann Lippowitz, whose mime performances to pop songs (such

as Natalie Imbruglia’s ‘Torn’) have earned him tens of millions of

YouTube hits. One of the most highly sought-after and riotously funny

acts you’ll ever see live.

AND: Adam Kay

Over 10 million YouTube hits (including the iconic London Underground Song), winner of the 2014 London Cabaret Awards, writer of numerous TV comedies.

“Mighty magical talents” – Evening Standard

WITH:

John Moloney

John has been a professional comedian for over twenty-five years, and has entertained audiences across the globe with his crafted, intelligent and original stand-up routines.

Winner of the Best Live Performer award for two years running at the London Comedy Festival, John has become one of Britain’s most in-demand comedians.

John was also delighted to be nominated as ‘Best Live Stand-Up’ at the British Comedy Awards – but was even happier to be the WINNER in the Category “ Outstanding Contribution to UK Comedy “ in 2015.

John’s Radio 4 was Pick of the Year in 2016, and has been re-commissioned in 2017.

Jamali Maddix

Jamali is one of most promising and exciting acts to hit the circuit in years.

With an assured stage presence and considered material that comes from a fresh perspective, he already has the aura of a successful comic well beyond his years.

His natural confidence and charm allow him to tread gracefully across more sensitive topics leaving many of his contemporaries behind.

In his first two years of performing Jamali won the Comedy Café New Act of the Year Competition and the Chortle Student Comedy Award – all while making it look effortless.

Jamali has a plethora of gigs under his belt – he plays the Comedy Store and toured with them in the Middle East. In June 2015 he supported Jim Jefferies before a 3,500 strong Hyde Park audience. His debut hour at the Edinburgh Fringe was a total sell out and received rave reviews.

He has also done a plethora of TV shows including The John Bishop Show, Live at the Apollo and 8 out of 10 Cats. Jamali also became one of the faces for the new Viceland TV channel with his own series “Hate Thy Neighbor”.

Phil Butler

Phil has always been a popular act, even in the early days when he was serving his apprenticeship in holiday parks, end of the pier shows, pantos and cruise ships. These were happy times for Phil, especially being part of big production shows, where he could show off his other talents like singing and dancing. Soon he found himself starring in these big shows, playing the comic lead in pantomime and seeing his name in lights with shows such as ‘Phil Butler’s Christmas Party’ in Blackpool and ‘Seaside Special’ which is the UKs number one summer show.

Wanting to explore other avenues and experience new challenges, in 2001 he joined the UK comedy circuit, where he is now found closing the show at all the major comedy clubs such as ‘Jongleurs Comedy Clubs’, ‘The Comedy Club’, ‘The Glee Club’ & ‘The Banana Comedy Club’. Phil has also had the great honor of performing for our British troops in Iraq and more recently Afghanistan.

“Phil Butler’s got it all … unique, original and hilarious” – The Stage and Television Today

“Without doubt, one of the most exciting and original finds in comedy in recent years” – The Guardian

“Phil brought the house down with a truly original and riotous act of visual comedy” The Mirror
