Glasgow Comedy Festival

News round-up

We're all over The List this month, with pages of interviews and features on some of the top acts and rising talent of this year's festival - pick up a copy! There's a short feature on the website too.

The Guardian write about two GICF acts in 'This week's new live comedy': "[Gary Delaney]’s got a deliberately low-key style – less like an entertainer, more like a bank manager on a day off – which allows his jokes to speak for themselves. And they do, spectacularly. Purist does exactly what it says on the poster: there are no personal anecdotes, no big themes, no tales of the comic’s tortured relationship with his father, just an endless flow of top-quality jokes."

The Evening Times interview the stars of our sold-out Burnistoun: Live and For Real! while The Daily Record run with 'Local comedians get ready for the Glasgow International Comedy festival'.

There's a mention in the Herald Scotland Diary of Kendra Cunningham, who comes to Glasgow for America Stands Up with GICF next month!

And for good measure, the Love London lifestyle blog have a lovely write-up of our laugh-a-minute Comedy Coach promotion with Virgin Trains! Phew!
