Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket - An­drea O’Neill An­drea O’Neill

La­nark­shire co­me­dian Des Clarke is back in East Kil­bride for an evening of laughs with some of the coun­try’s hottest comedic tal­ent.

Des Clarke and Friends – The Se­quel comes to the Vil­lage The­atre on Thurs­day, July 7, sup­ported by Scott Gib­son and Gary Lit­tle.

Des has be­come one of Scot­land’s favourite fun­ny­men, mix­ing his com­edy ca­reer with a job as a ra­dio DJ, ap­pear­ances host­ing events like the clos­ing cer­e­mony of the Com­mon­wealth Games and a reg­u­lar in the ever pop­u­lar King’s The­atre pan­tomime ev­ery Christ­mas.

Scott Gib­son per­formed his first sold out solo show at the 2015 Glas­gow Com­edy Fes­ti­val and has sup­ported big names acts such as Kevin Bridges and Frankie Boyle who de­scribed him as a “nat­u­ral, gifted sto­ry­teller”.

And join­ing the lineup this year is the one and only Gary Lit­tle.

The larger-than-life master sto­ry­teller has a rare gift of turn­ing mun­dane, ev­ery­day ex­pe­ri­ences into pure com­edy gold and was re­cently hailed by Kevin Bridges as some of the best stand up he had seen.

Tick­ets for the 8pm show cost £12 and are avail­able on­line at www.sll­cbox­of­fice. co.uk or con­tact the Box Of­fice on 01355 261000. This event is for over-18s only.

Bri­tish Cham­pi­onship Wrestling re­turns to La­nark­shire next month with new Heavy­weight Cham­pion BT Gunn.

Against all the odds BT Gunn man­aged to end Kid Fite’s three-year cham­pi­onship reign at BCW’s last brawl in Kil­marnock – the long­est any wrestler has held a cham­pi­onship ti­tle in Scot­tish wrestling his­tory.

De­fended against some of the big­gest names in world wrestling, in­clud­ing Fer­gal De­vitt, Davey Richards, Drew Gal­loway and Mr An­der­son, Kid Fite was fi­nally knocked off the top spot, with Gunn be­com­ing the first ever Scot­tish wrestler to be­come both BCW Heavy­weight Cham­pion and Grand­slam Cham­pion.

All your favourite wrestling stars re­turn to East Kil­bride’s Ballerup Hall on Fri­day, July 1, in­clud­ing com­edy grap­pler Grado.

The bold Ayr­shire fun­ny­man will take a break from film­ing for TV and re­hears­ing for his Pavil­ion panto de­but to make his re­turn to East Kil­bride.

Grado says the Ballerup Hall is up there with his favourite venues to wres­tle, adding: “Yeah it’s amaz­ing to wres­tle in mas­sive are­nas but you can’t beat that up close and per­sonal feel and the East Kil­bride fans never fail to put a smile on my face.”

Doors for BCW Live in East Kil­bride open at 6.30pm with the first bell at 7pm. Tick­ets cost £10 or £30 for a fam­ily of four.

Grado, who wres­tles for Amer­i­can out­fit TNA, is also sched­uled to ap­pear along­side wrestling su­per­stars at a mas­sive event hap­pen­ing later this year for BCW’s friends at In­sane Cham­pi­onship Wrestling (ICW).

Their huge event at Glas­gow’s Hy­dro will be a night to re­mem­ber.
