Described as having performed ‘Some of the best stand up I’ve seen’ by fellow Glaswegian Kevin Bridges, Gary Little certainly makes an impression when he takes the stage. In fact, you might be mistaken for thinking the venue’s bouncer has just decided to give this stand up comedy lark a go.

Appearances aren’t everything though and, as soon as Gary hits his stride, you will be enjoying a deftly skilled comic and story teller with a veritable library of side-splitting stories to tell.

Nothing is off topic for Gary, whether it’s something as mundane as dog walking etiquette, as comically ambitious as his own depression or even the occasions he has spent pleasuring Her Majesty (His 2009 show ‘He’s Only Jail Gay’ was a hit at the 2009 Edinburgh Fringe) you can rst assured he will make it devastatingly funny.
