Comedy Night

The Boo’s Comedy Night is back for the Waterfoot Wakes and we have two fantastic Edinburgh preview shows, catch brand new material from Nick Doody as he previews “I Will Milk You” follow on from his 2018 show using audience reviews: ‘He milked me. Why was there no warning?’, ‘A warning would’ve been nice’, ‘Why weren’t we warned about the milking?’ The message has been received people. This show is literally called I Will Milk You. Happy now?
These five-letter words about me in the press are too obscene to print: ***** (Scotsman). ***** (Metro). ***** (List). ***** (Chortle.co.uk).
How Read will be previewing material for his 2020 Edinburgh Fringe show along with some tried and tested material.
