Having stumbled into stand-up as part of an on-air stunt during her time as Fred MacAulay’s co-host a decade ago, Julia Sutherland is now known for critical observations and deeply personal confessional comedy. Her 2015 show at the Glasgow International Festival “Fat Chance” became a half hour special for BBC Radio 4, with stand-up and sketches revealing her experiences of losing six stone.
She co-wrote BBC Radio Scotland sitcom “Homework”, and starred in it alongside Sanjeev Kohli and Miles Jupp.
Eddie Cassidy finally began performing stand up comedy in 2009, after many years of threatening to do so, and ever since then has been entertaining crowds at comedy clubs, pubs and festivals up and down the country, earning the title of Scottish Comedian of the year in 2012. This unassuming Glaswegian immediately entertains with hilarious, articulate observations which he fuses with sadistic dry Scottish humour. His topics are dark and funny but his manner is endearing, and with this great combination he pulls this off with confidence and wit, fully deserving of the Scottish Comedian of the Year 2012 title. – Mumble Phil Chapman’s playful brand of comedy is unique and infectious. With a set that blends anecdotes and observations with a healthy dose of audience interaction, his happy-go-lucky approach and mischievous on-stage persona delights audiences far and wide. As a comedy writer, he’s provided content for BBC Radio 4 and Radio 4 Extra and has both written and produced material for social media which has attracted over six million video views to date.
