Wednesday 25th April

The John Moloney Show: BBC 4 Radio Recording at 8pm Free

A live recording for BBC Radio 4. The Godfather of British Stand-up returns to the stage to share his acute observations on the modern world. With his beloved cat Edward by his side, John examines the start of his career, personal bereavement and the existence of God in the three episodes scheduled for recording.
Be part of the audience for this third series on BBC Radio 4; previous series have been ‘Pick of the Week’ and ‘Pick of the Year’.
Support comes from three very different Scottish comedians; Julia Sutherland (BBC Radio 4 / Radio Scotland) Susie McCabe (Fastest Selling Act GICF) and Ray Bradshaw (Top Innovator, Adelaide 2017) making this a cracking little night to get you through the week.
‘Sometimes an established comic suddenly finds something extra, and one of these comics is John Moloney. He’s been a headliner at top clubs for years – yet his comedy has acquired more depth, as well as an even sharper edge’ (The Guardian).

Scott Gibson: Sunday Session at 8pm | £6 (£4)

Award Winning comedian Scott Gibson welcomes you to join him for a Sunday Session, the perfect way to end the week.

Held in the beautiful Basement Theatre on the last Sunday of each month. Gibson introduces a hand pick line up of singers, musicians, poets, storytellers, comics. . . . . . maybe even some magic!! (cool magic of course none of that rabbit in a hat stuff, or balloon animals).

There may be a pilot reading, an Author reading from their new book or a member of the audience doing a turn. Its the perfect opportunity to see the wealth of talent we have in Scotland, and to introduce yourself to an art form you may not be familiar with.

Grab your tickets and we will see you for a Sunday Session to remember.

Special offer: See two of our resident shows for £15! Simply put a minimum of 1 full priced or concession ticket for each show in the basket for the discount to automatically apply.
