Ultimate Comedy Roast - Darius Davies, Aideen McQueen, Adam Greene, Burt Williamson and Howard Smith!

A night of improvisational comedy, where anything can happen. 

Four comedians hate on topics suggested by, you, the audience. 

You can suggest any subject and the comedians compete to riff on it. What would you pick? .. sexual consent .. recycling .. the BBC .. GB News .. silent discos .. Stephen Hawking .. Palestinians .. Cockapoos .. Israelis .. train announcements? It's up to you!

Anarchic and surreal, this show gained a late night cult following at the Edinburgh Fringe festival. It had the audience on the edge of their seat as the comedians try to walk the line between funny and cancelled. 

'Brutally funny... absolutely brilliant!' (Scotsman). 

'Raucous, dick-swinging comedy' (Chortle.co.uk). 

Warning: This is not for the easily offended!

Friday 1st March. Show starts at 7.30pm

Featuring Darius Davies, Aideen McQueen, Adam Greene, Burt Williamson and Howard Smith

Darius Davies – your host for the evening

Darius cut his teeth in the comedy clubs of New York city. Due to “visa irregularities” Darius soon found himself back, and uncelebrated in London. He’s a distinct voice in a sea of ubiquity and fearless in his belief in what is funny and forging his own path. High energy, captivating and fuelled with passion, soul and wit.

Here’s a video clip of Darius’s scam on the BBC


Burt Williamson

Burt Williamson is a stand-up comedian and improviser. He’s had two critically acclaimed runs at the Edinburgh Fringe while also having self-produced his debut comedy hour 200 IQ Audience Only (No Munters). At once silly and serious, smart and stupid, Burt packs dense punchlines with know-it-all smarm and goofy charm to hilarious effect. At the forefront of a new and exciting generation of comics emerging from Bristol, Burt leads the charge on a new wave of talent in British comedy.

“His beautifully crafted set is clever in unguessable ways, unexpectedly hilarious at every turn and a great joy wrapped up in a big laugh, sprinkled with adorable.” - ★★★★ The Scotsman

“the funniest, most unlikely, rudest yet sweetest” ★★★★ - Entertainment Now

"Absurd and excellent" - Rife Magazine

★★★★★ Ed Fringe Review


Aideen McQueen

Spontaneous (in the losing her keys rather the kitesurfing way), Aideen McQueen is one of the brightest sparks in the new generation of Irish comics. She’s sassy, sexy, saucy and, most importantly, side-splittingly funny.


Adam Greene

Writer for BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz. As seen on DIY Pundit on BT Sport.
“Definitely one to keep tabs on,” - Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard


Howard Smith

Howard H Smith’s career started 30 years ago fronting thrash metal band Acid Reign which saw him head banging around the world as a fresh faced teenager. Since then 25 years of stand-up have seen him develop into a razor sharp comedian whose diminutive frame belies an awesome stage presence. “

About Comedy Unleashed

Having consistently sold out shows in London for the past 5 years, Comedy Unleashed brings more of its refreshing brand of stand-up comedy to the HiFi Club in Leeds.

Comedy Unleashed nights showcase comedians who have a spirit of exploration, are counter-cultural and eschew the bland and predictable. And, if a comedian gets cancelled, we like to put them on. The audience should be the only judge and if something is funny… it’s funny.

Here’s a video from the London club  Edgy Comedy is Back!
