Fearghas Kelly is an up-and-coming stand-up, unintentional John Lennon lookalike and disappointment from Glasgow. Praised by his favourite comedy club for his well-written material, confident delivery and audience rapport, nothing that comes out of his mouth is independently verifiable. Except that last bit which he insists he can prove.
Rosco McLelland (Headliner)
Scottish Comedian of the Year Rosco McClelland is riding the Scottish comedy revival, hotly tipped as one of its brightest stars, with bags of potential and professional accolades to prove he is one to watch. Twice nominated Best Newcomer at Scottish Comedy Awards, and winner of Scottish Comedian of the Year in 2016, Rosco’s gravelly and animated onstage presence has impressed judges and audiences alike.
