Bruce Devlin

Scottish comedy sensation Bruce Devlin, has worked in clubs, TV and radio for the past 21 years. An off the cuff master, Devlin thinks at lightening speed and cuts and pastes on the hoof. Bruce can entertain children and adults alike. A fringe festival, Glasgow festival favourite and a regular at the New York comedy festival Bruce proves age and language are no barriers, funny is funny and will translate. A people person, he can bring out the best in people with his uncanny abilities to read people and the situation.

An acclaimed writer with a fertile imagination, a razor sharp wit and an appetite for life. Results come thick and fast with this lovely man.

Susan Morrison

a comedy volcano, erupting with an endless flow of scorching hot gags, spewing forth at a blistering pace. Whether performing her own solo act or hosting The Stand’s big weekend gigs in Glasgow and Edinburgh, Susan is in a class of her own when it comes to quick-fire wit but behind the powerhouse of funny lies an inspiring woman who supports many causes and understands life’s ups and downs.

She is living with cancer having previously undergone a double mastectomy and had other parts of her anatomy removed but remains the most optimistic of individuals using comedy at the core.
