Catch-22 favourite Matt Reed is back at the helm tonight. The gin guzzling, Jesus lookalike has the most infectious giggle in the business and is a blooming genius at getting the audience involved.
MC Hammersmith (aka Will Naameh, the skinny posh one from Men With Coconuts, Spontaneous Sherlock and Spontaneous Potter) is an award-winning, freestyle rap improvisational comedian.
He's the world’s leading freestyle rapper to ever emerge from the ghetto of middle class white west London. Now based in Edinburgh, Scotland, he is the 2018 Scottish Comedy Award Best Newcomer, and the 2017 UK Improv Smackdown Champion - you'll love his unbelievably funny, totally improvised hip-hop comedy!
"The funniest rapper in the world!" Culross Fest
Our co-headliner, fast rising Scottish comedian, Gary Meikle, has quickly climbed the ranks turning into an international sensation with his captivating stage sets and online social media rants, such as “Eyebrows” and “Hair Extensions” which have earned over 125 million views in just five months.
His first US tour is just around the corner in August and stardom beckons. Drawing inspiration from his tough upbringing in Glasgow, Gary’s real-life, comedic storytelling has been the biggest attribute to his success.

"Wonderfully raw and real" Herald
