For Comedy Dundee’s last show of 2021 we’re putting on a Christmas special featuring not two but THREE professional stand-up acts who represent some of the best of Scottish live comedy. This is going to be a triple bill of festive hilarity that will finish off the year in style.
Hosting the night is Jojo Sutherland, a charismatic comedienne who performs in comedy clubs worldwide where her natural stage presence, alongside her "healthy neglect" attitude to life, proves extremely popular amongst many and varied audiences. You've seen her on TV and heard her on radio, featuring on the BBC's The Comedy Underground and Comedians at the Kings, and BBC Radio 4 Stands Up to name but a few. Her most recent live show Riches To Rags won the 2019 Scottish Comedy Awards Best Festival Show. Highly sought after for her ability to warm up a crowd, she is tour support of choice for John Bishop, Jason Manford and Jonathan Pie.
