Stand Spotlight

Wednesday 1st February 2017

For each Stand Spotlight we invite some of the best up and coming comedians to shine a light on a different topic, tying in with our charity theme. Be the first to see this brand new material – and your ticket money goes to a good cause!
This show will centre on the topic ‘Growing Up’. Ticket money will be donated to HopScotch , a local charity that provides free countryside holidays to vulnerable children. A holiday with HopScotch offers some of Scotland’s most disadvantaged children their only opportunity to have a break away from their problems in a safe and secure environment. The children who visit contend with serious issues in their home environment, including sexual abuse, domestic violence, parental mental and physical health issues, parental drug and alcohol abuse and extreme poverty. .
Please join us to support brand new comedy from the stars of tomorrow and raise money for their vital work!
With Phil O'Shea, Michael Hollingworth, Ross Leslie, Joseph Goss, Kimi Loughton and host Gary Meikle!
To ensure the maximum amount of money reaches the charity, we are not taking advance payments for this show. Tickets are £5 and can be reserved by calling our Box Office on 0131 558 7272.

Josh Howie’s Messed Up

Sunday 26th February 2017

Fresh from creating and starring in his own BBC Radio 4 sitcom and having performed his unique brand of painfully honest stand-up at the top comedy clubs and festivals in the UK and internationally, Josh Howie is embarking on his first UK tour. It might not be easy living with him and it’s not easy being him, but it is easy to laugh at his antics as he strives to be an amazing husband and super-dad of four. And fails.
‘Howie is brilliantly clever, honest, utterly engaging and absolutely fearless.’ ***** Scotsman
‘A fabulous storyteller who can make you concentrate in silence then erupt into a fit of giggles.’ ***** Metro
‘Howie is a name to watch.’ Times
‘Circuit legend.’ Time Out
‘It’s refreshing to see someone like Howie tell a wider story about his life while taking comic opportunities at every turn.’ **** Independent

Lee Kyle - Burning This Place to the Ground

Tuesday 28th February 2017

Come and see Lee Kyle do his show, it's good. Mind you, this is him typing this so he's bound to say that.
If you have seen him do comedy and liked it, you might like this show, if you have seen him and thought he was rubbish, this might change your mind I suppose, probably not. If you don't rate him, I'm perplexed as to why you're even reading this really.
If you've never heard of Lee, then, I don't know, it's probably worth a punt, these people liked him and he's quite a nice man:
'Top up-and-coming comedy performer' BBC
'Quirky and original... the highlight of the night' GiggleBeats
'Very funny' Manchester Evening News
'Had everyone on their feet – Sublimely ridiculous' Northern Echo
'A brilliant performance... pure genius' NARC Magazine
