The Saturday Show

Our fabulous flagship Saturday show has been sold out every week for the past five years. And no wonder- it’s the best night out in Glasgow. Five different acts on every bill including our top drawer resident comperes and the best headliners from the UK and abroad.

With Dave Johns, Giants, Robin Grainger, Liam Farrelly and host Jo Caulfield.

Dave Johns

Dave Johns appearing at this event

Highly-acclaimed Geordie stand-up comedian with numerous TV and radio credits to his name. An expert in the delivery of in-yer-face comedy, Dave's high-energy routine has left audiences around the globe gasping for breath and crying with laughter. In 1989 Johns’ launched the Comedy Café on Westgate Road and invited the emerging Jack Dee and Jo Brand to appear, but realising they needed an MC stepped-up and did it himself. Finding he was rather good at it and pricing tickets at £3.75 including soup and a bun, the club became a city hot spot and Dave went on to host many more comedy stars including Eddie Izzard, Steve Coogan, Harry Hill and nervous 14 year old lad called Ross Noble who went on to do rather well for himself. Johns became a successful comedian, touring throughout the UK, a regular with the Comedy Store Players and appearing on much loved TV shows like Never Mind the Buzzcocks and 8 Out of Ten Cats. 'He performs comedy's greatest magic, simply by being himself. A genuinely funny, engaging performer' (Glasgow Herald) 'He shifts from the sublime, to genius, to uproar in the blink of an eye - an extremely entertaining hour' (The Guardian).

Jo Caulfield appearing at this event

Graham Norton's writer and warm-up artiste, co-founder of the 'Hampstead Clinic' comedy club. She is regular performer at the Comedy Store and on The Stand Up Show. Jo is a regular guest on both Mock The Week and Have I Got News For You. Other TV appearances include The John Bishop Show, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Saturday Night Live, The Stand Up Show. Dubbed 'funniest woman in Britain', she lives up to the title with razor-sharp wit, acerbic observations and scandalous one-liners, all excellently written and impeccably delivered. 'Cut-throat wit and a razor-sharp tongue...Sharp-witted, urban comedy that goes down a treat. Like a sociology textbook, but with jokes' (The Times). 'Incapable of doing a bad show, so sharp is her tongue and so in tandem is it with her mischievous mind' (The Scotsman). 'Feisty, funny and wonderfully bitchy... one of the finest female comics' (The Observer).
