New line-up for monthly comedy show ‘A Buddy Good Laugh’

A Buddy Good Laugh, the monthly comedy night created by Renfrewshire Arts & Museums in partnership with local promoter Dead Sheep Comedy will be back at Paisley Arts Centre on 29 May.

On the bill this month are comedians Mark Nelson, Davey Connor and headliner Iain Stirling plus resident MC and Dead Sheep Comedy creator Scott Gibson.

Widely regarded of as ‘one of the best joke writers in the circuit’ (GQ), Iain Stirling has received huge critical acclaim since he first burst onto the comedy scene in 2008.

Starting his stand-up career while still at university, he came runner-up in the Chortle Student Comedy Awards and then the Scottish Comedian of the Year Awards; firmly establishing his place as an exciting, emerging act on the UK comedy scene.

A Buddy Good Laugh is a monthly stand-up show featuring the very best of Scotland’s comedy talent. Since launching in September 2013 names like Garry Little, Daniel Sloss, Des Clarke, Janey Godley and Des McLean have all taken to the stage at Paisley Arts Centre, and often in front of a sold out crowd.

Enjoy A Buddy Good Laugh at Paisley Arts Centre on Thursday 29 May, 8.30pm. Tickets cost £10 (£8 conc) and can be booked at the Box Office at Paisley Arts Centre, by phone on 0300 300 1210 or online at

Des Clark, The Reverend Obadiah Steppenwolf III and Bruce Morton complete hilarious Halloween line-up.

A Buddy Good Laugh, Renfrewshire Arts & Museums’ brand new comedy strand is back this Halloween week with another superb line-up of Scottish comedians primed and ready for devilishly good laughs.

MC’d by Dead Sheep Comedy creator and comic Scott Gibson (regular performer at The Stand Comedy Club) this Thursday’s gig is the perfect remedy for Halloween fatigue.


First on the bill is acclaimed comic, storyteller and social commentator Bruce Morton. A founder of the Funny Farm Collective in 1989, Bruce is credited for kick-starting the burgeoning Scottish comedy scene and has not stopped since. Nominated for a Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for his show Sin, Bruce is has since written and starred in comedies for TV, radio and theatre.

Winner of the 2003 Chortle Award for Best Breakthrough Act, The Reverend Obadiah Steppenwolf III is a regular feature on BBC 2’s Live Floor Show. With his heavy metal music, black leather and sunglasses, he is definitely not what you would describe as a run-of-the-mill evangelist. Having managed to offend virtually every religious group and been barred from most places of worship, The Reverend has continued to spread the word of the Lord in comedy clubs up and down the UK. Comedy fans take note: The Reverend is not for the faint hearted or the easily offended!

TV presenter, broadcaster and Scottish stand-up legend Des Clarke completes the line-up for this Thursday’s show. Once an exciting rising star on the Scottish comedy scene, Des’ high energy humour has taken him to the Edinburgh Festival every year since 2001, the Glasgow Comedy Festival and further afield to New York, Dubai and Adelaide, earning him legions of new fans along the way. Away from stand-up, Des can be heard weekdays hosting the Capitol FM Breakfast show.

A Buddy Good Laugh will be at Paisley Arts Centre on Thursday 31st October. Doors open 8.15pm and the show starts 8.30pm. Tickets cost £10 (£8 conc) and can be booked in person at the Box Office in Paisley Arts Centre, by phone on 0300 300 1210 or online at
