A relative latecomer to the world of stand-up comedy at the age of 46, Jim McCreadie cites taking to the mic as his version of a midlife crisis which on reflection was “cheaper than a Harley Davidson and much less hassle than having an affair”. First taking to the stage in March 2015, he quickly settled into the Scottish Comedy circuit appearing around Scotland including appearances at The Stand Comedy Clubs, The Edinburgh Fringe and making his debut at The Glasgow International Comedy Festival in 2017. In 2016, Jim also co-founded Tennent’s Comedy Basement, one of Glasgow’s longest running monthly comedy nights in Glasgow’s West End and has been hosting shows there for almost 3 years.
Stephen Buchanan is one of the fastest rising prospects in Scottish Comedy. His likeable personality and self-deprecating material make him a hit with the audience and fellow comedians alike. He was nominated for “Best New Comedian” at the Scottish Variety Awards in 2016 and was runner-up in the Scottish Comedian of the Year competition in 2017. He has four sold-out Glasgow comedy festival shows under his belt, along with a host of successful Edinburgh Fringe runs.
Charlotte MacDonald returns with her stories of survival from Brooklyn and beyond.
Bruce Morton – Scotland’s acclaimed comic, storyteller and social commentator was a founder of the Funny Farm Comedy Collective which in 1989 helped kick-start the Scottish stand-up scene. Milestones along the way include a Perrier Nomination at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, two UK tours and a critically acclaimed one-man show Blood Below the Window, premiered at The Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh in 1998 and which prompted The Independent to comment, “Bruce Morton is not so much re-writing the rule book as throwing it away”. The show was subsequently adapted as a BBC Radio 4 afternoon drama.
Phil Kay, the legendary Scottish Storyteller and master of mirth.
Come and hear all the best stories from very creative comedian. Still wild, anything could happen.
Come see a man from whom the words just flow in a bawdy stream of comic consciousness.
