Grand Gala Comedy Night: Paul Pirie, Christian Reilly, Rob Rouse, Toby Foster
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Paul Pirie began his stand-up career after giving up acting to pursue the funny man that lies within, quickly establishing himself on the Scottish comedy circuit before lauching onto the UK comedy scene and even appearing in Ikea's April 2011 comedy based TV advert. It should be pointed out that when Paul started stand-up in 2004 he was living with his Gran, having given away the keys to his flat in a pub quiz. Since this time Paul’s career has encompassed TV, Film and Radio alongside his burgeoning skill as a stand-up with Paul emerging as one of the biggest Scottish acts on the UK comedy circuit.
'Fizzing with energy and spewing out one-liners like he had just scoffed a dodgy prawn, Pirie is a man we will be seeing more of' (Daily Record).
Paul Pirie tour dates
Christian's first gig was playing Orson Carson in the Perrier-awarded 'Rich Hall is Otis Lee Crenshaw'. He has since gone on to use his accomplished musicianship, extensive vocal range and love of music to establish himself as a global comedy circuit headliner; at international festivals, on BBC radio and TV and recently on the award-winning 'Richard Herring: As It Occurs To Me'.
'If you're a fan of Bill Bailey or Rich Hall, you're a Christian Reilly fan already' (The Guardian).
'The comedy equivalent of Motorhead slamming straight into Ace Of Spades' (The Scotsman).
Christian Reilly tour dates
An English comedian known for his hyperactive brand of humour. Since winning Channel Four's prestigious 'So You Think You're Funny' Competition at the Edinburgh Festival in 1998, an award previously won by Phil Kay, Dylan Moran, Lee Mack, Tommy Tiernan and Peter Kay, he has been a regular performer at major venues on both the London and National circuit, known and loved for his hugely lively, loveable, honest, frank and seriously funny stand up comedy.
'Immensely talented act who demands to be seen. A star of the future... A man
with genuinely funny bones’ (The Sunday Times)
'He is a great storyteller... prepared to go to the bleakest and most uncomfortable
places... The tears of laughter came in floods’ (The Scotsman)
'Hilarious’ (The List)
'Belly laugh funny' (The Herald)
'Frankly brilliant' (http://www.SuchSmallPortions.com)
'A carefully weighted hour of comedic storytelling' (Fest)
