Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
Let your hair down at the end of the week with fabulous fun this Friday. We’ve put together a prime stand-up show with five of the best acts on the Scottish and International circuits.
With Dan Nightingale, Peter Brush, John Gavin, Marjolein Robertson and host Susan Morrison.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Dan is a huge star of the national circuit and is a resident compere and act at Manchester's Famous Frog and Bucket Comedy Club. He is an act not to be missed! 'Nightingale can make just about anything funny. He's lightning-quick' (Time Out) 'A superb compilation of brilliantly crafted stories written by someone who unquestionably has a keen and instinctive eye for comedy. Nightingale's buoyant energy makes for entertaining stand up' (Broadway Baby) 'Dan's laughing, we're laughing... funny as hell' (Leicester Mercury) 'A witty and incredibly well timed comic' (Arts Award Voice) 'It is his powers of observation that make him so entertaining. Outrageously funny' (KeepingupwithNZ) 'Magnetic, entertaining and wonderfully funny' (Three Weeks).

Peter Brush is a highly distinctive performer and deft writer of finely crafted jokes. He unassumingly takes the stage with his slight bespectacled frame and scruffy hair, before consummately conquering it with an arsenal of razor sharp quirky one-liners and peerlessly original routines, all delivered in an amusingly awkward fashion. A BBC New Comedy Award Finalist 2013 & Harrogate Comedian of the Year 2012, he has also written for BBC Radio 4's 'The News Quiz'. 'An imaginative use of language and obtuse angles of thought that produce distinctive and eclectic gags... his best lines are inspired' (Chortle). “Unique observations and connections that stand-ups crave” (The Guardian).

In July 2008, without his knowledge, John's wife put him forward for a competition for newcomers at the Edinburgh Fringe. He had never performed comedy before. He did so well he got through to the final of 'So You Think You're Funny' within the first month of his comedy career. He offers tales of tales of his home life with a wife and 3 young daughters, essentially a 6ft tattooed man who has been subjected to far too much High School Musical and pink fluffy toys. 'His effortless likeability and unaffected charm make his conversational set all the more engaging... a class act' (Chortle).

'Don't be fooled by the diminutive frame. Within that pint-sized exterior lies a talent so huge that it can barely be contained. Susan Morrison is a comedy volcano, erupting with an endless flow of scorching hot gags, spewing forth at a blistering pace' (www.suziemo.co.uk) 'A supremely capable comedian' (The Scotsman). 'Susan Morrison - the Glaswegian wit for whom the word feisty was invented' (Scotland on Sunday) 'Bolshy and brassy - she's the queen of cool' (The List).
