"A no frills master of his craft" ★★★★★ - The Scotsman
“No one does righteous indignation with the same brio as Barrie, an inheritor of the splenetic mantle of the great 80s alternative comedians” - The Guardian
“Barrie’s analytical nous and store of snappy gags mark him out…Excellent” - The Independent
“Eloquent slick and dynamic, his hour positively races by in a blur of opinions, flippancy and indignity” ★★★★ – Chortle
Hosting the night will be one of this city’s funniest sons, native Dundonian comedian Steve McLeod. As well as having opened for Tom Stade and Larry Dean, Steve was hand-picked by Gary Meikle for his ‘Surreal’ tour.
“There’s a reason Steve has supported me more than once, he’s class and a rising star on the comedy scene” – Gary Meikle
