Headliner: Daisy Earl

A rising star in comedy Daisy started stand-up in 2013, quickly attracting plaudits and accolades; winning ‘Best New Comedian’ at the Scottish Variety Awards in 2015, and then being crowned ‘Scottish Comedian of the Year’ in the same year, making her the first ever female winner.

Following a sell-out show at the Adelaide Fringe in 2016, Daisy returned to the UK to scoop ‘Best Newcomer’ at the Chortle Live Comedy Awards before performing two further sell-outs runs at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2016 and 2017.

Half Scottish, Daisy now resides in London, where she continues to make a splash on the comedy scene; performing in venues across the UK and earning a reputation as a promising and highly original talent.

She recently supported Tom Stade on his nationwide tour and has just gone through to the regional final for ‘The Funny Women Awards‘ 2018. She has appeared as a guest on BBC Radio’s ‘Breaking the News’, the STV ‘Late Show ‘and BBC Radio 4 Extra’s ‘Best of the Fest’.

«Impressive… an appealing vulnerability but awakening steeliness» — The Scotsman.
«Memorable and perceptive stories» — The Skinny.
«Strikingly honest and hilarious» — Huffington Post.
«Refreshing and relatable. a perfect show» — Adelaide Advertiser.

Opener: Christopher Macarthur-Boyd
Born and bred in Glasgow, at twenty-four Christopher has already established himself as one of the most exciting Scottish comics to
emerge in recent years with critics tipping him as one to watch.

Christopher has performed stand-up internationally at the Perth and Adelaide Festivals, as well as Toronto. He's recently made appearances on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 4 Extra. A three time Scottish Comedian of the Year finalist, Christopher has made a name for himself by writing, directing and performing short-form content for BBC Scotland’s Short Stuff.
