Hyena Lounge Comedy Club - Saturday Night Lounge: Barry Castagnola, Andre Vincent, Ben Schofield, Kevin Dewsbury
"Every Saturday we bring you four of the funniest stand-up comedians from around the world to our friendly and intimate venue in a two and a half hour long laughter-fest aimed at comedy fans, couples and small groups.
We are NOT suitable for large single sex groups such as Stag or Hen parties, we operate a strict NO FANCY DRESS policy and the maximum group size we allow is 12. Please don't try to get round this by booking separately as you will be refused admission without a refund and we'd all rather avoid this embarrassment on the door!
STRICTLY OVER 18 ONLY"

Actor, writer and comedian Barry Castagnola has firmly established himself as an accomplished comic performer. He has been performing stand up round the country and internationally for over four years. He started off by blagging his way on to the stage at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles and has never looked back.
'His blokey charm and willingness to make himself look ridiculous carry him through the trickiest of subject matter' (Edfest)
'Lucid urban storyteller' (Chortle).
Barry Castagnola tour dates
After cutting his teeth performing on the pavements of the world and winning the Time Out Street Performer Of The Year Award 1987, he transferred his skills to stand-up. He toured mainly in the USA and Canada, including a support slot for Bob Hope, before returning to his native London in 1994. Over five years on the circuit in this country have seen him rise to one of the most widely respected performers doing the rounds.
'He always gets people laughing through his accomplished stand-up skills, evident in his scalpel-sharp ad-libs and outstanding one-liners' (Chortle)
'Aside from his ability to sustain a single narrative for a full hour, with thought-provoking originality and biting humour, Vincent also uses video to deliver one of the most disarming punch lines you're ever likely to see on the Fringe' (The Scotsman)
'An improvising comedy genius' (The Guardian)
'He possesses the energy of Lee Evans with the improvisational skills of Paul Merton and is one of the best comedians in the business' (The Times)
'Ferociously funny' (The Sunday Times)
'Honesty and truth (and funny lines) are comedy essentials and fortunately Vincent has come more than prepared... this corpulent comic is an utterly welcoming
presence, lacing his blokeish jollity with welcome shots of rage and giggling incomprehension' (Metro).
Andre Vincent tour dates
Hirsute, hectoring and hilarious, Ben Schofield has performed to audience and critical acclaim at comedy venues across the British Isles. An accomplished act and MC, he marries a distinctive animated delivery with a scatologically cerebral comic voice and a keen eye for the absurd. He boastfully maintains the unique record of being the only comedian ever - as far as he is aware, or is reasonably likely - to have written a joke about galvanising dustbins (and a rather good one at that). This stands as testament to his ability to mine comedy gold from even the most unlikely of seams.
Ben Schofield tour dates
Kevin knew he was destined to be a stand up comedian when at the age of just 8 months he fell ten feet down a stairwell and banged his head on a newspaper rack; because of this people have been laughing at him ever since. As soon as he steps on a stage the audience quickly realise they are in the company of a natural born performer!
'Very funny indeed. A poignant tale with lots of really good deadpan humour. He is a little like Eddie Izzard – but he made me laugh much more than Eddie Izzard ever could. Engaging, very slick and professional. Wonderful songs that had me and the audience in stitches. A very likeable comedian' (The Edinburgh Enlightenment).
