Susie McCabe: Born Believer

King's Theatre
Saturday 28 March

The fastest selling act at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival 3 years running is back in 2020 with another brand new show! - and this time it’s the King's Theatre in Glasgow! In this show Susie looks at life in her own unique way, and in her 40th Year she has decided to (try) leaving the cynicism behind and being the all new positive Susie (optimistic at best, positive is pushing it). This show is bound to be another barnstormer for McCabe, former Scottish 'Headliner of the Year' and a Glasgow International favourite.
But they’re just jokes - they are not the terrible things.

'A naturally funny storyteller, a genuine stand-up, highly recommended' Kevin Bridges

John Shuttleworth’s Back!

King's Theatre
Sunday 17 March

‘John Shuttleworth's Back’... is giving him trouble.
Years of strenuous DIY, not to mention playing his organ whilst perched upon a multi pack of Diet Sprite with no lumber support, has taken its toll.
But - ever the trouper - John returns to the Glasgow International Comedy Festival to regale audiences with an evening of his classic songs (plus new ones and hilarious 'back' stories), pausing only to reapply his deep heat rub!

‘A ludicrously compelling night out.’ Evening Standard

Jimmy Carr: Terribly Funny

SEC Armadillo
Friday 13 March
Saturday 14 March

Jimmy’s brand new show contains jokes about all kinds of terrible things. Terrible things that might have affected you or people you know and love.
Having political correctness at a comedy show is like having health and safety at a rodeo.

Now you’ve been warned, buy a ticket.
