Lanternhouse Laughs – Chris Forbes, Jojo Sutherland

Sat 27 Aug (19:30)

Studio Theatre

Each of our Lanternhouse Laughs events is a unique comedy highlight in our calendar, hosted by its very own compère and featuring 3 hand-picked comedy-circuit favourites, guaranteeing to bring the (Lantern)house down!

Chris Forbes makes a welcome return to Lanternhouse Laughs to compère the final Lanternhouse Laughs of this season. Star of BBC’s Scot Squad and award-winning comedian, Chris Forbes is one of the most in demand comics in Scotland and has gigged all over the world and supported Kevin Bridges on tour.

And here’s the line-up:

Gareth Mutch is an actor and stand-up comic who is a regular on the Edinburgh comedy circuit. Gareth was a semi-finalist in the Laughing Horse Competition 2012.

Kathleen Hughes is a Glaswegian comedian who began performing stand-up in January 2020, acknowledged as possibly the worst time to become a comedian. Her writing has been featured on BBC Radio Scotland’s Breaking the News and BBC Radio 4’s Newsjack. This is Katherine’s third appearance in the Lanternhouse Laughs series.

Headlining tonight’s Lanternhouse Laughs is Jojo Sutherland.
Since bursting onto the scene in March 2002, Jojo Sutherland has climbed the comedy ladder at an alarming pace. She regularly plays at comedy clubs across Scotland and the North of England and is also in great demand for corporate gigs. As a regular at The Stand Comedy Club in Edinburgh and Glasgow, she alternates between her regular set and compering. As an accomplished actress Jojo frequently appears on stage and undertakes work from a variety of fields including radio presenting and improvisational forum theatre, she has also appeared in several short films.  

Doors open at 7.30pm, starts at 8.00pm
