For laughs at West­wood

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket -

An award-win­ning co­me­dian is set to bring his new stand-up show to La­nark­shire on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 9.

Comic, TV and ra­dio pre­sen­ter and ac­tor, Des McLean, will per­form at the West­wood Bar as part of his 2015 stand up tour

The For­mer Clyde 1 Break­fast co-host has re­cently ap­peared in Iain Pat­ti­son’s crit­i­cally ac­claimed play‘I Tommy’, about the life of politi­cian Tommy Sheri­dan.

He also went on tour with his very own spe­cial A to Z of Scot­land show dur­ing 2014.

With some of the big­gest names in the busi­ness start­ing to no­tice and com­ment on his ex­tra­or­di­nary tal­ent, Des can’t wait to un­leash his stack of new ma­te­rial on this na­tion­wide com­edy tour.

On the ra­dio, Des did a spoof of Billy Con­nolly’s world tour of Scot­land se­ries, with a spe­cial ‘world tour of East Kil­bride.’

And his com­edy went down a storm with the peo­ple of La­nark­shire.

A large chunk of his sec­ond DVD ‘talk­ing about live’ was filmed in East Kil­bride as a re­sult.

This will be the first time Des has played the West­wood and he said “all these years singing along to Aztec Cam­era’s ‘Some­where In My Heart’ and I didn’t know that when Roddy Frame sang “from West­wood to Hol­ly­wood,” he was singing about his lo­cal in EK!

Des was ap­proached by John Smith the owner of the West­wood Bar, a big com­edy fan, and asked if he fan­cied try­ing this venue out this time round on the tour.

Des said “I al­ways check out all the venues . John West­wood had set out up­stairs at the venue like a the­atrestyle com­edy club and it looked amaz­ing!”

Tick­ets are £10, avail­able from venue and online. http://de­sek.eventbrite.co.uk
