comedy may 2nd 212x300 - Get Funny at The BothyFollowing on from the success of Carnivale, The Bothy will be used to bring the funny in what is the start of a series of comedy slots at the venue.

Seven comedians will take to the stage including three who are Glasgow based; Aldis Hamilton and Emily Rain aka ‘Carrot and Curls’ are “two of Glasgow’s newest and hottest (even if they do say so themselves) female comedians.” They will be joined in the trip up the A9 by Michael Holligworth.

Martin Bannon who must be one of the few that can put “used to be Jesus” on his CV will be joined by fellow local comics Steve Scott, Donnie Shovlin and Kieran Lochore.

Proceedings will be “managed” by compere Conor O’Hara who had previously played host at the Carnivale events.

Conor said of the event “You’ve got places like the Comedy Store in London and and the Comedy Cellar in Dublin, so we decided that the Comedy Bothy was appropriate. Hey, we might end up doing a Highland tour playing in actual bothies. Happy to hear from anyone about that, especially if they have a secret whiskey still.”

The Comedy Bothy is free and starts sharp at 8pm.

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.
