Glasgow Comedy Festival, March 2019
« on: January 09, 2019, 02:33:07 PM »
This is happening again

http://www.glasgowcomedyfestival.com/

This is a list of people who I am interested in seeing but will probably forget to book tickets for (again)

Tony Law
Lou Sanders
Desiree Burch

Sadowitz tempts me but it's a big theatre so eh, maybe not

Any other recommendations from the stand-up savvy on here?

(I'm actually more interested in seeing Kieran Hodgson, Jessie Cave and Kiri Pritchard-McLean who are performing at the Stand in the weeks/months before/after the festival tbh)

Got a few shows lined up.

Jack Docherty
Rich Hall
Paul Sinha
Justin Moorhouse

Wanted to go see Rab Florence do his Biscuity Boyle show again but it's on the same night as Jack Docherty. Seen both shows but plumped for Jack Docherty because it was really good at the Fringe. I'd recommend it. Does his Scot Squad character and McGlashan from Absolutely.

Nothing wrong with Sadowitz at the Kings. Seen him there twice, laughter guaranteed.

I see Larry Dean's now officially in the big league, at least locally.

Otherwise I saw all these last year at the fringe and they're good / worth a punt without being unmissable:

Garret Millerick
John-Luke Roberts
Olga Koch
Sara Barron

I'd also go and see Tom Parry on the strength of his Yellow T-Shirt show.

Purchased before they sell out:

Tony Law
Zaltzman
David Kay

Maybe:
Sadowitz (bit steep)
Moorhouse
Rab Florence
Munnery (is this the same show he did at Edinburgh last year?)
Waiting for Godot play

Defo go to Rab Florence. Great show.

Limmy has added 2 more dates. I missed the bank to put money in so hoping they don't sell out by the morning!

I saw the limmy one, but like all his book stuff it seems a bit steep as well imo.

Got my Limmy ticket. Luckily I checked the dates of other shows as I nearly booked him for the same day as Paul Sinha.

All the shows I'm going to are on consecutive days which will make for a good week. Still holding out hope I'll manage to get a ticket for Al Murray at the Stand. Just missed out on a ticket.

Is Desiree Burch kind of a big deal that I've missed? Because £12 for a preview upstairs at the Old Hairdresser's feels steep

Aye. She's on the up and up. I think it's due to The Mash Report.

I'm kind of curious about Jasper Carrott (assumed he'd retired)  but not enough to pay £30 plus to see what seems to be half a musical show with the Bev Bevan Band.

So went for some smaller and cheaper options, mainly people I missed at the Fringe this year:

Sofie Hagen
Lou Sanders
Simon Munnery
John Kearns
Olga Koch
Garrett Millerick
Ben Target
John-Luke Roberts

Not convinced some of the venues will be that great for comedy - don't like the Hug and Pint even for bands because the stage is at floor level and if its busy you can't see anything. And The Empty Space used to be a tiny gallery in Finnieston. Must be a really small capacity. I hope there will be chairs.

That's me all booked up now.

Justin Moorhouse
Limmy
Paul Sinha
Jack Docherty
Biscuity Boyle

And possibly Al Murray if a ticket becomes available. There's a few others i might go to if there's still tickets nearer the time but happy with my line up. Saw Biscuity Boyle & Jack Docherty's shows last year and really enjoyed them so really glad to be seeing them again.
