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

'... 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).
