Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Scottish stand up comedian based in London, Leo Kearse started his comedy career in 2009. He is one of a new wave of British acts who draw on the heritage of US acts such as Chris Rock, Sam Kinison and Bill Burr to deliver powerful, rhetorical, personal comedy taking in big issues. In 2015 he won the UK Pun Championships but he is best known on the circuit for his hilarious stories about being Scottish, dating, buying a train ticket and Thai toilets!
'Kearse is seriously good. Quick, funny, smart and to the point... hilarious' (The Scotsman).
