Friday 19th of January
Welcome to our first Largs Comedy Club. The Club will run on the third Friday of the month every two months.
The Big, Bald, Bearded Glaswegian. A naturally skilful and riveting raconteur, Scott Gibson mixes a conversational style with his own unique brand of dark humour, gloriously bad language and shrewd observations.
Working any room he plays like a champion Gibson's amazing ability to sneak powerful themes and experiences into what might appear to be a traditionally bawdy set, full of toilet humour and political incorrectness, has allowed him to move up the ranks quicker than many before him.
His brush with mortality galvanised him into becoming a stand-up and inspired the show Life After Death, which won the 33-year-old the Edinburgh Comedy Best Newcomer Award at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe. Making him the first Scottish Comic in history to do so.
A regular at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival, his 2013 and 2014 shows were the fastest selling shows in the programme, requiring an unprecedented 4 additional nights added to the run, due to overwhelming demand. 2015 and 2016 seen Gary selling out again. 2014-2016 also seen Gary playing to sold out rooms with his solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival.
Despite his imposing physical presence – a 6’ 2” skinhead – Gary has an incredibly personable, relatable style. Combine that with his unflinching honesty and openness – and just a hint of vulnerability – and audiences everywhere fall in love with his easy charm. He has that rare gift which to turn mundane, every-day experiences into pure comedy gold, which will have you simply crying with laughter.
