Gein’s Family Giftshop & Andy Fury
Gein’s Family Giftshop
Following success at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and their own BBC Radio series, the award-winning Gein’s Family Giftshop are coming back to Hilarity Bites. Don’t be scared.
Fast paced and irreverent, Gein’s Family Giftshop have an enviable gag rate and a stage presence that more established groups can only dream of. Their unique brand of gag heavy writing and gleeful live performances have given the group a core of loyal followers, creating original and engaging sketch comedy that never forgets the punchline.
Absurd in tone this quartet marry the tragic with the hilarious, as they apply their warped world vision to the hilarious subject matter of abject misery, and human tragedy.
Despite starting comedy out of “sheer boredom” just a few years ago, Andy Fury has impressed a lot of people in a short space of time with a wonderful mix of self-deprecating dark jokes and off the wall surrealism.
With a laidback stage presence that sometimes borders horizontal, he’s as hard-working as he is funny and winning the Hilarity Bites New Act Of The Year 2010 title has put Andy on the path to working at many of the best clubs in the country, wowing audiences the length and breadth of the UK.
