The stalwart comedy company has a stellar line-up for its new premises in Glasgow
The Aussie livewire is one of the most endearingly entertaining acts on the circuit, and her recent show, The Iceberg, proved that she has good gags, isn’t afraid to make herself look daft and can keep a secret. Up her sleeve.
12 Sep & 19 Dec.
