Friday 5 July, 2024

Chris Forbes

Star of BBC’s ‘Scot Squad’ and award-winning comedian, Chris Forbes is one of the most in-demand comics in the UK. As well as being a regular on the UK comedy circuit, Forbes has gigged all over the world from America to Canada to Australia to Norway to Dubai. Forbes has supported Kevin Bridges on tour!

Perhaps best known as country copper PC Charlie MacIntosh on BAFTA award-winning comedy ‘Scot Squad’, Forbes has also built a strong following for his genius character creation, Duncan Murray – The Other Murray Brother.

His sketches alongside Judy Murray have amassed over 20 million views online and the Live Duncan and Judy Shows have been total sell outs. A talented comedy writer, Chris has also been written and starred in two of his own shows for the BBC. Critically acclaimed, cult sketch show, ‘How Do I Get Up There?’ and ‘The Farm’ alongside comedy farmer, Jim Smith.

Raymond Mearns

You’ve probably seen him in Limmy’s show and heard him on BBC Radio Scotland’s Breaking the News but what you may not know is that Raymond Mearns has consistently been one of the top live stand-up comedians in the country for the past 15 years! Successful Edinburgh Festival Fringe shows every year from 2011 to the present day have demonstrated Raymond’s considerable ability to keep his stand-up fresh, relevant and most of all extremely funny. Described by Frankie Boyle as “a genuine improvisational genius”, Raymond can be seen regularly performing at venues across the UK and frequently on the International Circuit. If you want to see a great stand-up comedy show combining awesome storytelling with moments of genuine improvisation then he’s your Man!
