Welcome to the 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.
He regularly vents his incredulous anger speaking harsh truths that lead his audience down a path few dare to tread; the best lines, ostensibly the ones that cut closest to the bone.
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.
“Irvine Welsh meets Billy Connolly” - The Evening Standard
One of the most in demand acts on the UK circuit. Star of stage and screen, including Limmy’s Show, Rab C and a certain Ken Loach film. Consistently one of the funniest acts in Scotland and amongst the most hardworking acts of all time. An act not to be missed.
