SNAFU COMEDY CLUB :: JOHN GILLICK, RAB BROWN, KALONDE, CHRIS SCOULAR & ED PATRICK (MC) // TUESDAY 2ND MARCH // SNAFU

John Gillick is one of the most experienced and accomplished stand-up comedians in Scotland today. And it shows. A former member of Glasgow-based comedy collective, The Funny Farm, John was there at the start of the renaissance of Scottish comedy and has been beating a path for other comics to follow ever since.

There's no substitute for experience and the best kind of stand-up is one who has experience both as a comedian and life in general. John Gillick is a fine example. He's been an art student, a tax officer and an encyclopaedia salesman. He has appeared in films, guested on BBC Radio Scotland's 'Off The Ball' and 'Velvet Cabaret' as well as headlining clubs and theatres throughout the UK.

With his composed on-stage presence, his breadth of experience on and off the stage gives him a wealth of material spanning all aspects of modern day living. John has an uncanny knack of finding a common bond with any audience, relating to them on a more personal level than you would have thought possible. As a result, his wry observations on life are never less than hysterical, with fantastic one-liners, hilarious real-life characters and stories so bizarre that they could only be true.

In addition to his vast experience on the UK comedy circuit, John is a regular headliner at the Best of Scottish Comedy shows during the Edinburgh Fringe, and has also appeared in his own highly acclaimed solo shows. No stranger to critical acclaim, John Gillick has been described as sublime - reminiscent of a less sardonic Arnold Brown Scotsman and compared to Dylan Moran with his deceptively precise musings List.
