The Big, Bald, Bearded Glaswegian. A naturally skilful and riveting raconteur, Scott Gibson mixes a conversational style with his own unique brand of dark humour, gloriously bad language and shrewd observations. His brush with mortality galvanised him into becoming a stand-up and inspired the show Life After Death, which won the then 32-year-old the Edinburgh Comedy Best Newcomer Award at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe – making him the first Scottish comic in history to do so.
Scottish Comedian of the Year Rosco McClelland is riding the Scottish comedy revival, hotly tipped as one of its brightest stars, with bags of potential and professional accolades to prove he is one to watch. Twice nominated Best Newcomer at Scottish Comedy Awards, and winner of Scottish Comedian of the Year in 2016, Rosco’s gravelly and animated onstage presence has impressed judges and audiences alike. He commands continuous laughter from his audiences, his naturally humorous delivery and surreal observations making a remarkable performance.

Jay’s Debut Full Fringe Run solo show, Besom (2017) ranked Number 5 in the Top 10 best reviewed comedy shows at the Edinburgh Fringe 2017. Leading to a successful tour run and now a residency at The Gilded Balloon’s Basement Theatre Jay Lafferty’s Besoms.
