Glasgow Comedy Festival

Sean Lock & Andy Parsons announced to join the fun in 2013!

 Sean Lock – Purple Van Man Live, Tuesday 19th March, 7.30pm, Kings Theatre, Glasgow.

 Andy Parsons – I’ve Got a Shed, Wednesday 20th March, 7.30pm, Kings Theatre, Glasgow.

This hilarious new stand up show comes from the most fertile comic mind in Britain. We all know what white van man thinks about the world we live in but its time to hear a different voice, purple van man’s voice. Filled with gags, opinions, deft observations and some silly voices this is Sean Lock doing what he does best, spouting inspired jibber jabber as he crosses the country in his purple van. He will make you laugh like a drunken horse.

Sean Lock is one of the UK’s most highly acclaimed and original comedians. The British Comedy Award winner has performed on Live At The Apollo and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow. He has been a brilliant team captain for fourteen series of Channel 4’s show ‘8 Out of 10 Cats’. And his extensive TV credits also include appearances on Never Mind the Buzzcocks, QI and Mock the Week. For more info on the show and how to buy tickets, see here

To date Andy Parsons has done three sell-out National tours and in 2009 released his debut DVD ‘Britain’s Got Idiots’, which was followed up by ‘Gruntled’ in 2011.  Andy started in TV on Spitting Image becoming one of the main writers beforeembarking on a stand-up career which has led to such shows as Mock The Week and Live at the Apollo. This, his fourth show, is his favourite yet – come and get your dopamine fix.  Andy Parsons - coming near to a theatre near you – and then throwing his satnav out the window and phoning for directions.

‘It's great to welcome sharp, topical comedy on to the live circuit - and Parsons remains one of its most skilful exponents’ The Guardian

 ‘Andy Parsons' lethal mixture of anger and ridicule leaves the Big Society in tatters’ The Times.
