Comedy Festival at the Citz 2011

With 10 different acts from the Magners Glasgow International Comedy Festival at the Citizens Theatre this year, there is most definitely a show to suit all tastes and ages. There are a few big names you'll know very well, but a few others you might not - but who'd be well worth taking a risk on.

The easiest way to suss out their style, is to watch a clip; so I've gathered some together in one easy blog post, to save you the trouble.

Warning: These are adult shows and do contain swearing!


JENNY ECLAIR Thu 31 March
Grumpy Old Woman and recent star of I'm a Celebrity...
Mainly restricted view seats left




DES BISHOP Fri 1 April
His festival show will challenge the ridiculous ideals of manhood.




MARK THOMAS Mon 4 - Tues 5 April
Political activist extraordinaire (Limited availability remaining)




SUSAN CALMAN Wed 6 April
Local funny-woman and Fred MacAulay regular.




JEREMY HARDY Thu 7 April

In addition we have The Guardian's intellectual heavyweight GEORGE MONBIOT, local hero JONATHAN WATSON hosting his Wind Up Live (mainly restricted view seats left) and JAMES CAMPBELL's Comedy 4 Kids.

All shows are recommended for 18+ (apart from James Campbell's, which is 6+).

Click on the performers name to find out more about their show.

We'll see you soon for plenty of giggles and most likely a few big belly laughs!
