On bill at a top Black­pool gig

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket - Ian Bunt­ing

An Air­drie co­me­dian is off to the sea­side af­ter be­ing named on the bill of a top gig in Black­pool later this month.

JD Brown joins five of the coun­try’s finest up-and-com­ing fun­ny­men for ‘6 Shots of Scotch – The Best of Scot­land’s New Com­edy Stars’ on the North Pier stage on Thurs­day, July 23.

The 33-year-old will per­form along­side Steve McCullough, Joe McSloy, Joe McKe­own, Pablo Ser­ski and Graham Bar­rie as he brings his sto­ry­telling comedic style to hol­i­day­mak­ers.

The for­mer Vir­gin’s New Stand Up of the Year is de­lighted to fol­low in the foot­steps of some of Bri­tain’s finest comics by grac­ing the North Pier stage.

JD said: “The six of us were all ap­proached by Tony Jo, a co­me­dian from the 1980s and 90s who is the di­rec­tor of the North Pier theatre, about putting a night of new Scot­tish com­edy on in Black­pool.

“We dis­cussed a few ins and outs of the show and it was booked and con­firmed.

“To say we’re look­ing for­ward to the show is an un­der­state­ment. The North Pier theatre has hosted some of the big­gest and great­est names in com­edy through­out its history.

“To be listed as play­ing there and be­ing on the same stage is just over­whelm­ing.

“Peo­ple com­ing along can ex­pect laughs a plenty. We are six of the best new co­me­di­ans in Scot­land and with that comes some of the best new com­edy around.

“Ex­pect a few choice words and sub­jects that make life that lit­tle bit un­com­fort­able turned on their head so that you can laugh and live a lit­tle bit eas­ier.”
