We are also offering you lovely comedy types 2 for 1 on selected main courses in The Athenaeum on Tuesday night between 5pm and 7.30pm, just quote comedy when your being seated. (They'll know what you're talking about!)

This week, kicks the year off with Patrick Rolink, Quentin Reynolds, Jason Murphy, Stuart Mitchell and MC for the night - Scott Forbes.



Patrick Rolink started gigging in 2002, and has played virtually every comedy club in Scotland as well as many in England, including The Comedy Store Leicester Square, Jongleurs Battersea, The Buzz Club, The Cellar Bar in Dublin as well as clubs in Newcastle ,Manchester, and Torquay.

The year 2003 seen Patrick reach the national finals of the Channel 4 competition "So you think you're funny" at the Edinburgh Festival, and a whole series of gig at the world famous Edinburgh Fringe. Patrick also performed at various "Late & Live " venues during the festival.

2004 saw Patrick become a Jongleurs regular with regular spots in Glasgow and Edinburgh ,in April of this year Patrick enjoyed the ultimate experience of appearing on stage on Broadway in New York, in a the highly acclaimed "Matt McGinn Tribute Concert.

2005 seen Patrick promote and compere a very successful show at the Leicester Comedy Festival, as well as performing in a variety of places from The Hebrides Island, Torquay and Melton Mowbray, again demonstrating the universal appeal of his humour. The Big Smoke of London was again a calling point for Patrick with gigs at Jongleurs in Camden and Battersea, proving he has Capital Appeal.

Patrick has also hosted and presented a nightly TV chat show on regional TV station, Thistle TV, where he interviewed personalities from sport, politics and comedy. He also has a regular sell out gig in his hometown "An Evening With Patrick Rolink and Friends", and also organised the yearly Lanarkshire Comedy Festival, which has brought top comedy acts to many towns in the Lanarkshire area.

In addition to his comedy work, Patrick regularly comperes events, most notably the DVD "Lord Of The Wing" a film about football legend Jimmy Johnstone, which has so far sold in excess of 60,000 copies. He has twice compered the biggest St Patrick's Day festival in Scotland, and also participated in "The Stand-Up 150" in 2003, in which he and other comedians entered the Guinness Book of Records. Patrick also appeared in, and won an edition of the BBC quiz, "The Weakest Link"

Patrick has also worked on stage at the Scottish Royal Academy of Drama & Music, demonstrating that his brand of humour crosses all barriers, and is an excellent after dinner speaker, much in demand simply because he can deliver a setto please and delight any audience.

With diversity that knows no bound Patrick also reached number 17 in the UK charts in 2002 as a backing singer on the single "Best Day Of Our Lives".


Quentin Reynolds has been writing comedy since 1998, with a host of TV and radio credits to his name. In 2003, the performing bug bit deep, and he ventured into the world of stand-up comedy. He has not stopped gigging since, and in a relatively short space of time has performed at many venues throughout the UK with much success.

He has so far taken part in two Guinness Book of Records attempts, namely the Stand-Up 150 for the most comedians on stage ever in 2003, and One Big Laugh for the longest comedy gig ever in 2005. He has also appeared as a guest in numerous shows at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival and Edinburgh Fringe.

2004 saw him make two TV appearances on local TV station Lanarkshire TV. Quentin described these appearances, which were witnessed by 6 viewers in the whole of the UK (and who were probably outnumbered by the TV station staff) as "The absolute pinnacle of my comedy career, if not my life!"

2005 saw him appear in the Leicester Mercury Comedian Of The Year Competition. He also was part of the successful Leicester Comedy Festival "In Ur Face Comedy" show featuring Scottish comedy legends Kirsty Moss, Patrick Rollink, and Perrier Award nominee Parrot.

From Thurso to Torquay. Quentin's youthful energy, likeable stage persona, and excellent material has won him many fans and excellent reviews. When he's not performing he likes nothing more than working on other writing commitments or causing trouble with letters to newspapers under false names! However, it must be said that Quentin prides himself on original and clean material which any audience can warm to.
