Compere – Rob Kane
Since starting comedy in 2006 Kane has became one of the most sought after compere’s on the circuit. His sharp, rapid fire comebacks are often hitting the mark and has audiences in hysterics. He has been a finalist in the prestigious Scottish Comedian of the Year and Amused Moose competitions as well as appearing on BBC Scotland’s much revered Scot Squad and Off the Ball.
Graham is a seasoned circuit stalwart who has been gigging regularly on the scene in Scotland for over 15 years and there’s just no substitute for experienceGraham’s claim to fame is that he has gotten himself into the final of the “Scottish Comedian of The Year” competition FOUR times!Nobody else has ever achieved this remarkable feat and it’s a testament to the talent and determination of the big man.Down to Earth and just plain funny is the only way to describe Graham Mackie who has drawn some very fine material indeed from his dysfunctional home life and his eventful career in teaching.
I talk about the trials and tribulations of having teenage sons as well as how I feel the world is slowly moving on without me. I’ve performed and opened shows across the country and have performed at both Glasgow and Aberdeen comedy festivals. I supported Gary Meikle at The Stand Newcastle and have done spots at Rotunda, Monkey Barrel, Hot Water, Breakneck and The Stand Glasgow & Edinburgh. I’ve been described as relatable and self-deprecating with a presence on stage that makes me connect with the audience.
Obie has been on the circuit for 20 years in Scotland. He headlines gigs all over the country and has performed shows all over the world including Australia, Germany and Ireland. Obie is highly regarded as one of the most naturally talented comedians on the circuit today. His shows are filled with surreal journeys, observations and a bit of philosophy of life.

A list of these clubs include:- Yesbar Comedy Club, Cross my laugh comedy, The Monkey Barrel, Lady Shona Comedy, Enterteasement and many more.Obie has also headlined gigs around Europe including Nutty Annitas in Amsterdam and Cosmic comedy in Berlin.As well as being a regular headliner around these clubs Obie is a very competent compere and easily sets up a room well for other comics.

Outside of performing comedy Obie also runs comedy workshops where he not only teaches people how to perform and write stand up, he also helps them with skills that help improve confidence in every day life.
