Gary Meikle -
Award-winning Scottish comedian Gary Meikle burst onto the comedy scene in 2013. He has just enjoyed a phenomenal run at this years Fringe and has established himself as one of the most promising acts to come out of Scotland.
Gary’s comedy style can vary from goofy to playfully dark, depending on the situation put before him. This award-winning comedian is not only making waves down south, but he has recently become the world’s Official Anti-Eyebrow Ambassador. Gary complained online about his 23-year-old daughter's obsession with having "bangin" brows. More than fifteen million views and thousands of comments and shares later, he had no idea so many people would share his pain…..

Rachel Jackson -
Rising star and ‘ever so slightly unhinged’ comedian Rachel has just been nominated for best feature film at this year’s BAFTA Scotland awards for ‘The Party’s Just Beginning’ A highly absurd and wholly original performer, catch her while you still can…

Susan Riddell - Funny Women runner up 2018 and Best Newcomer nominee at the Scottish Comedy Awards, Susan Riddell is quickly ascending through the comedy ranks. Susan has performed stand up at the Edinburgh Fringe including BBC Radio 4 Best of the Fest. She is currently working on a sitcom pilot with the BBC Writersroom and is a regular on the topical BBC radio panel show Breaking the News.

Chrissy Ross -
Your compere Chrissy is one of Scotland’s most promising new MCs and comedians.
