Never miss another 'Stephen Carlin' show
Edinburgh Previews - Name In Lights / Gambling Man: Stephen Carlin, Paul McCaffrey
Paul McCaffrey - Name In Lights:
A new hour of top drawer, anecdotal stand-up
comedy. Warm and cheeky wit with likeability in bucketloads.
Stephen Carlin – Gambling Man:
'Are you content to fritter away your life in gainful employment … or are you feeling lucky? Well are you? Can you feel it in your bones? Are you on a roll? Are the gods smiling on you? Go on, put your money where your mouth is and bet your life savings on a horse, or a greyhound, or a football match. Oh, not so sure now? What, feeling a bit cautious? You disappoint me'.
Stephen Carlin examines gambling, chance, optimism and how to beat the odds in life

Stephen Carlin began his stand-up career in 2002 and soon became a permanent fixture on the comedy circuit, supporting Stewart Lee and Stephen Merchant on tour, also appearing in Stewart Lee's 10 Best Stand-ups In the World Ever. Stephen has appeared in Comedy Cuts [ITV] and Edinburgh & Beyond [Paramount Comedy], and has written for Radio shows such as Laura Solon Talking and Not Talking [BBC Radio 4].
'Sharp, slightly offbeat, mainly very funny' (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard)
'The whimsy and relaxed on-stage demeanour were a winner instantly... (Carlin) excelled in pedantry, married to exceptional use of language' (Leamington Observer)
'... if this man isn't a household name in five years' time, the world is even more lacking in justice than we could have feared' (The Scotsman)
'... a delightfully off beat act who expertly applies twisted, convoluted logic to common-or-garden observations to produce genuinely original material... a definite tip for the top' (Chortle).
