About this event

About this event

Obie has been performing stand up for over 20 years. He headlines comedy clubs around the country and has been performing solo shows at comedy festivals including Edinburgh, Melbourne and Perth for over 15 years. He is just fresh off the Edinburgh festival where he performed shows a day for 3 weeks to make up for the lack of gigs during lock down. He had one of his most successful years in Edinburgh this year. Most of the shows were sold out due to word of mouth. His shows got rave reviews from the press and audience members alike.

"More homegrown laughs are to be enjoyed with Obie (****) who has the natural comedy gifts of the Glaswegian and the skill and experience to use them to peak funniness. This is an hour of laughter with no real theme, no dead dad, no clever subtext and no revelations at the end. It is that too often dismissed type of Edinburgh show, the 'just funny' hour. The entire room rocks with laughter, pretty much constantly. “It's all made up, these are just jokes,” he reminds us every so often. And jokes there are, about painting stripes on a budgie, comedy as therapy, funny friends and so much else that is honestly only funny when he says it. So go and see him and you will understand. This is a body-and-soul funny man." The Scotsman.

"Saw Obie yesterday brilliant show, top bloke really likeable chap. If your at the fringe and you want to belly laugh he’s a must see." Kay

"Went to Obie’s show yesterday at the Edinburgh Fringe. Absolutely brilliant! My face was sore with laughing 😂. If you get a chance, definitely check this guy out!" Carol.

"Great comedian, totally hilarious great night had, would defo recommend" June

"Saw Obie last night at the Stand in Glasgow, what a laugh. The guys' hilarious, would definitely recommend you go see him!" Sarah-Jane

"I saw Obie the Comedian last night at the Edinburgh Fringe and he was hilarious. Best comedian I have seen at the Fringe, I would highly recommend everyone to go and see him! " Jenny

"Watched him do a 10 min set to promote his show and straight after , went to watch the hour show. One of my highlights of the Edinburgh weekend. A must see." Douglas

"Caught Obie by pure luck yesterday and we were glad we did. After seeing him for a short stint at yesbar in Glasgow we knew he’d be funny. But he went beyond that, my friend and I left with sore ribs and aching faces from laughing so much! Definitely would recommend seeing him to anyone" Laura
