Having a Laugh

It cannot be missed the number and calibre of comedy acts that are visiting the Highlands has been increasing. It could be argued that “live music venues” are diversifying a little in the amount of comedy acts that are on their rosta.

However and this is a big however, the appetite for big name comedy is significant, wether it’s Jimmy Carr doing two nights at the Eden Court, Kevin Bridges at Rockness, Sammy J and the Enchanted Forrest at the One Touch or Reginald D Hunter filling up the Ironworks (to name four of a very long list).

So, my question is, would it not be time for the venues and promoters to get together and plan a comedy festival for a quieter time of year (September/October??). It would bring people into the city, get people from the city out at a difficult time of year and bring a smile to our faces?? It may also bring exposure to smaller comedians (not Ronny Corbett small) and introduce comedy to some of the other venues in town (and vice versa).

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me via our Facebook page.
