5 things to see at Funny In Falkirk comedy festival
Dylan Moran, Felicity Ward, David Baddiel and more
1 Felicity Ward
This Aussie comic has gently crept up the comedy ladder and is now a fully-blown must-see act. And behind the joviality, she’s not afraid to tackle some of the tough stuff that’s happened in her life. As if that wasn’t enough, she’s on a double bill with the estimable Mr Will Franken.
Behind The Wall, Sat 20 Jul.
2 Mark Nelson / Reverend Obadiah Steppenwolfe III / Kai Humphries
Three very different acts (a gagman, a character, an anecdotalist) but all with their eyes firmly on the funny.
Behind The Wall, Thu 25 Jul.
3 Iain Stirling
One of those rising stars of Scottish comedy that you keep hearing about, the lad who has gained fame from being a presenter on kids telly hangs a little looser with a show about sharing accommodation with his ladyfriend. Interesting spectacles he has these days, too.
Terrace Bar, Sun 28 Jul.
4 David Baddiel
It’s been a long time coming, but this is Baddiel’s first full stand-up show since 1998. Expect lots of tales of what he’s been up to for the past 15 years.
Falkirk Town Hall, Mon 29 Jul.
5 Dylan Moran
One of the true greats of the modern stand-up scene, a new Moran show is a genuine delight. Expect lots of stirring whimsy and surrealist-tinged rage at the world.
Falkirk Town Hall, Tue 30 Jul.
