Top 5 up-and-coming female comedians at the 2014 Glasgow Comedy Festival

Fern Brady

Eleanor Morton

In 2013, Morton was nominated for a Scottish Variety Award and reached the Chortle Student Award semi-finals. And she has Josie Long on her team, so nothing can possibly go wrong.
The Old Hairdressers, Glasgow, Wed 19 Mar.

Abigoliah Schamaun

‘There can't be many acts with as much sass as Schamaun’ was how we summed up her Subtle show last August. The brassy American returns with more candid tales about life, love and lust.
Blackfriars Basement, Glasgow, Fri 21 Mar.

Fern Brady

Having gained a spot in our recent Hot 100, perhaps there’s nothing left for the opinionated (and writer of Guardian opinion pieces) Brady to achieve? Rather dark and very funny, she could, in actual fact, get as far up the comedy ladder as she wants.
The Griffin, Glasgow, Sat 22 Mar.

Hailey Boyle

This New York-born, Alaska-raised comic has some Scottish blood deep in her genes, but she’ll not be playing on that much, preferring to concentrate on what she’s confident about rather than trying to suck up to the natives.
Blackfriars Basement, Glasgow, Sat 22 Mar.

Holly Walsh

Still best known for Hollycopter, her show about a horrendous injury she suffered after jumping off a pier (in the name of charity), the recently wed Walsh might unleash her not-altogether-positive thoughts about having children.
The Stand, Glasgow, Wed 26 Mar.

Brian Donaldson

Abigoliah Schamaun: Subtle

Filthy jokes and side show stunts (she'll stick a needle through her hand if you ask her nicely) from this New York comedian who has wowed at the Fringe recently.

Eleanor Morton: Work in Progress

A sort-of finished show, with musical bits, non-musical bits and a bit of Jessie J bashing.

Fern Brady and Stuart Mitchell

Funny duo touting their separate shows.

Hailey Boyle: Funny Like a Dude

'Funny like a dude since 1979', Boyle and her fierce comedy were named one of New York's top ten funniest.

Holly Walsh: Work In Progress

Smart gags and insightful humour in Walsh's work in progress show.
