Paul Pirie - Headliner
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. 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
“His delivery is superb” – Chortle
Wilson - Support
Wilson burst on to the stand up comedy scene in November 2011, quickly getting to the final of the ‘max Turner prize’ in just his fourth gig. At first he comes across as a cheeky chappie, but it doesn’t take long to realise that Wilson has a lot more strings to his bow – a mixture of sharp observations, pinpoint accents and curveball one liners that suit all types of audience.
“smart, charismatic and a huge hit with audiences at up the creek. wilson is fast becoming a great name to watch out for”-david geli, up the creek comedy club
Russell Hicks - Compere
Anyone who has seen Russell Hicks knows that it is never the same show twice. Taking a different approach to most comedians, Russell Hicks weaves improvisation with stream of conscious delivery that has moved many audience members to return for two nights in a row. Nothing in this biography can do his act justice other than to say, you just have to see him live.
“Astonishing, astonishing and astonishing. He simply took the roof of the place leaving people talking about his act all night. His entire 20 minutes was totally improvised based entirely on audience interaction. Brilliant” Cheeky Monkey Comedy Club
