An acclaimed comic and storyteller, Bruce was a founder of the Funny Farm Comedy Collective which helped kick-start the Scottish stand-up scene.

Local lad, and former Scottish Comedian of the Year, John is supporting Bruce at the gig on October 18.

John, originally from Forth, started on the circuit in 2008 after his wife Michelle put him in for a competition without his knowledge.

A month later he ended up in the final of So You Think You’re Funny 2008.

The following year he won the Scottish Comedian of the Year title.

BLF organisers have once again pulled out all the stops to bring another stellar line-up to the town. Tickets for the show are still available from the BLF Box Office and online.
