Dreamboat: Chris MacArthur-Boyd

Born and bred in Glasgow, Christopher Macarthur-Boyd is a rising star on the stand-up scene. The last 12 months have seen him take his critically acclaimed debut show Home Sweet Home to the Edinburgh Fringe and London’s Soho Theatre – 'a debut hour that seems endlessly enjoyable' (The Skinny). The show was officially the best reviewed of any Scottish stand-up at the fringe in 2018.

This festival, his new show Dreamboat sees Christopher fresh out of his mum and dad’s house and into a flat with his Australian girlfriend, where he finds himself to be the voice of ‘Generation Rent’. Expect jokes about empty nest syndrome, gentrification, landlords, classlessness, and breakfast cereal.
