Top class comedian Des Clarke is one of the UK’s most exciting performers and is coming to Largs Comedy Club at Barrfields Theatre on Friday

Des has made a name for himself as both a highly successful comedian and one of television and radio’s star presenters.

Des is a much loved voice on the airwaves and can be heard waking up central Scotland every morning as host of the Capital Breakfast Show. He also fronts hit comedy series Breaking The News on BBC Radio Scotland. The last few years have been massive for Des. He hosted the live Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony to a global TV audience of 1 billion viewers. After which he performed live to thousands again, providing entertainment and commentary at both the Six Nations Rugby and Scotland international football matches.

He has also become one of Scotland’s best loved panto stars. Starring at the King’s Theatre in Glasgow annually since 2012.

Stand-up comedy remains Des’s first love and he performs his own solo shows annually at the Edinburgh Fringe and Glasgow Comedy Festival. He has toured the world with his unique brand of observational humour, appearing on stage in New York, Dubai, Australia and Los Angeles. Des has also received critical acclaim for his comedy, winning Chortle Best Newcomer and the ITV Golden Mic Award.

Des is the headline speaker with Raymond Mearns and MC Scott Gibson on Friday March 16, starting at 8pm.

Scott Gibson's brush with mortality galvanised him into becoming a stand-up and inspired the show Life After Death, which won the 33-year-old the Edinburgh Comedy Best Newcomer Award at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe, making him the first Scottish Comic in history to do so.

And Raymond Mearns is certainly no stranger to the Largs Comedy circuit, having performed at Lounge to great acclaim earlier this year. One of the most in demand acts on the UK circuit. Star of stage and screen, including Limmy’s Show, Rab C and a certain Ken Loach film. Consistently one of the funniest acts in Scotland and amongst the most hardworking acts of all time. An act not to be missed.
