Vladimir McTavish Stand Up Comedy Night

Following his 2015 sell-out show, Vladimir makes a welcome return to Crail Festival.   He will host a spectacular night featuring the cream of Scottish comedy, joined by Jay Lafferty and Keir McAllister. A perfect night to BYOB!   Raucous laughter guaranteed!   Watch your mascara, hen!

Vladimir McTavish:

"Affable and abrasive...nothing short of superb"  The Scotsman

"Inspired comedy brilliance" Australian Stage

Jay Lafferty

Jay has been performing comedy since 2005 working all over the UK as well as in Los Angeles and Toronto. An experienced compere and stand-up Jay has an easy manner on stage, instantly connecting with her audience - whether a rowdy group of stags and hens or a serene ladies’ luncheon Jay’s quick wit has them eating out the palm of her hand.

'Cuddly one sec, cruel the next, this comic will have you open-mouthed in amazement' - The List

‘Utterly excellent. Charming & funny...” - Hardeep Singh Kohli

Keir McAllister

“…a gifted comedian destined for much bigger things…”.   Edinburgh Evening News

“…the excellent Keir McAllister shines with his fast paced intelligent set…”    The Skinny

“…McAllister’s rapier wit is a joy to behold…”.  Threeweeks

“...mighty stage presence and impressively high punchline ratio...”  The Scotsman

Marc Jennings.

One of the most promising new acts on the Scottish comedy scene, the English Literature graduate from Clydebank regularly plays clubs up and down the UK.  Marc recently performed at the Barrowlands Ballroom as part of the Scottish Comedian of the Year Final and in 2015 was selected for the BBC’s New Comedy Award competition.

Marc has written jokes for BBC Radio Scotland’s Breaking the News, is part of the popular sketch troupe SCRAM who have residency at The Stand Comedy Club, and has clocked up well over a million views online as writer and star of his own viral comedy sketch.
