Stand Up (If You Love Killie) 6: A Review

StandUpWebAd6Time to have a look back at the last (very succesful) Killie Trust Comedy at The Sports Bar at Rugby Park back at the end of February this year.

After five top nights, number six came up with the good with four belting sets from Teddy Ross, John Speirs, Gary Little and Scott Gibson all corralled superbly by returning compere Ray Bradshaw in front of the now iconic Newcastle United strip in the Player Sports Bar.

Teddy kicked us off with his well polished jokes and stories about his new wife and after the first break John Speirs regaled us with the story of how he scored the greatest goal in school football history in 1998 of all years. A story fifteen years in the making it would seem. He was followed by the irrepressible Gary Little and his side-splitting thoughts on the mindset of dog walkers and the what if of Osama Bin Laden being a Glaswegian. Scott Gibson sent the full house in attendance home happy with tales of what he sees in the parenting of his brother and the relative merits (failings) of his hometown Paisley.

The night was a big success and with a full house and a great raffle around £1600 was484942_10151777379804899_159470127_n raised for COG. We hope everyone who attended had a great night and that everyone who couldn’t make it are suitably annoyed and desperate to make the next one, they really are brilliant nights of comedy on our own doorstep. Thanks to Brownings also for the Killie Pies at the break and for the volunteers who took the time to sell the raffle tickets.

Stand Up (If You Love Killie) 6!: A Preview

With Christmas and New Year outta the way, time to plan your next night out, why not make it with us?

StandUpWebAd6

Friday 22nd of February 2013 sees the return of Killie Trust comedy in the form of Stand Up (If You Love Killie) 6! Since its inception, our comedy night has gone from strength to strength and showcased some of the best acts on the Scottish circuit, next February will be no different as Ray Bradshaw returns to run the show as our compère having enjoyed it so much last time. Ray is currently embarking on a series of dares for his upcoming festival shows, one of which isn’t to be a Partick Thistle fan which he does simply because he wants to.

Also on the bill this time up will be Gary Little, a Glasgow comedian with a colourful past who has been in comedy ten years come 2013 so is in his testimonial season, Scott Gibson will also be with us, from Paisley he has gigged all over Britain since starting in 2010 and was even gigging all around Ontario Canada this year as well as alongside Kevin Bridges and Frankie Boyle at The Stand. Further to those two is Teddy Ross, who has written for TV and radio and also is editor of Scottish Comedian FC blog and podcast which has the views of Scottish comedians on fitba (funnily enough). Finally completing the line up is John Speirs, Kilmarnock fan and resident he has “papped out in the first round” of Scottish Comedian of the Year 2012 on his CV and he was at Stand Up 3 so this marks his return. All in all a fantastic line up for you all to get excited about, so what about those tickets?

Well, 2013 is a new year but the price is still the same, £15 to laugh your head off on a Friday night. As always all money raised goes toward The Killie Trust and you can get yours by calling 07429615232 or visiting the Trust Desk which is situated as always in
the Park Hotel on match days. You can also purchase tickets on Eventbrite and pay via Paypal – http://killietrust.eventbrite.com/

Plenty of ways to get involved.
