MC: Scott Gibson

 

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.

Scottish Comedian of the Year Winner 2016 and one of the hottest new talents on the UK circuit.

Headline Act: Gary Little

 

 

Gary Little is one of the most consistent and funny acts in Scottish comedy.  He is recognised as a master storyteller, and is a regular headliner at many of the top comedy clubs in the UK.

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.

As well as his solo show in Edinburgh, Gary was also part of the 5 star (The Stage) play Jail Mates.

After a successful pilot episode in 2016, 2017 has begun with the 4 part comedy series Jail Mates being commissioned and broadcast by BBC Radio Scotland

2017 also see Gary take his show to Australia where he performed at The Perth Fringe. He returns in 2018 and also will be playing at the Adelaide Fringe

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.
