The bonafide ‘Comedy-fizz bomb’ Ayrshire born comic BILLY KIRKWOOD burst into stand up in 2005. Quickly establishing himself as one of the United Kingdom’s comedy’s most watchable acts, he is widely regarded as a “must see” with an ever expanding, cult following, thanks to his unique, yet slightly surreal style of storytelling, near non existent attention span, likeable on-stage presence and inventive energetic performances.


SUSIE McCABE: “Glasgow’s Freshest Female Comedian”

DOGSHIT JOHNSON: “There’s definite promise here…a welcome addition to the characters on the Scottish comedy circuit.” (The Skinny)

STEFFEN PEDDIE: “Returning to Stand Up Comedy after an 8 year break as a Pro Wrestler, life has found Steffen Peddie a little older, wiser and bigger than before, but still ready to find the lighter side of any subject (or audience member, for that matter!) that is thrown at him.”

SCOTT GIBSON: “What sets Scott apart from other similar comedians is his heightened self-awareness and ear for subtle word choice. Where audience interaction is concerned Gibson is flawless.”

THE WEE MAN: “this one is actually very funny indeed…his greatest success was nabbing a place in the final of the Scottish Comedian of the Year Awards in 2006 and 2007.”
