Top comedians announced to celebrate the Spirit of Glasgow in Festival Closing Gala
With six weeks to go until the start of the Glasgow International Comedy Festival (GICF), organisers have announced that Janey Godley, Paul Black and Susie McCabe will lead the line-up at the Closing Gala on Sunday 2nd April.
Organisers have said that alongside the presentation of the first ever Sir Billy Connolly Spirit of Glasgow Award, Janey Godley and Paul Black will be joined by comedians Liam Farrelly, Marc Jennings, Scott Agnew, Weegie Hink Ae That?! and Jay Lafferty – all ably compered by Susie McCabe. Judy Murray and the third Murray brother, Duncan, are also set to appear. More acts are still to be announced.
The announcement comes as Janey Godley has embarked on what she has called the ‘last tour of this life.’
Paul Black has announced a national tour, after his two shows at the King’s Theatre during the festival have already sold out.
Festival Director, Krista MacDonald said: “Our closing gala will be the perfect opportunity to showcase the talent that helps to make Glasgow the funniest city in the world, and we’re delighted that Janey, Judy and Paul will lead the exciting line-up that celebrates Glasgow, as we make history by awarding the first ever Sir Billy Connolly Spirit of Glasgow Award.”
The GICF Closing Gala will take place on Sunday 2nd April from 3pm at the King’s Theatre. Tickets can be purchased here.
