Homecoming Comedy Gala: The Preview
One of the highlights of the last few days of the festival will be The Homecoming Comedy Gala but the line up of Australian and Canadian comics will also play a special preview show.
Canadian and Australian comics visit the land of their forebears for Homecoming 2014 and play a special preview show at the Southside’s Glad Cafe.
From Australia – John Robertson. A comedian, writer and MC who is in a constant state of world tour. A comic and actor for nine years, his one-man shows, ‘Blood & Charm’ and ‘Dragon Punch’ drew rave reviews at the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe. He has a Scottish grandmother.
From Canada – John Hastings. John has been performing stand up since 2006, and in 2012 he moved to London, since then he has been going from strength to strength entertaining audiences across the country engaging them with his sharp punchlines delivered through his observational storytelling style. He also has a Scottish granny.
From Canada - Christina Walkinshaw. Christina has performed at Gotham Comedy Club in New York, the Hollywood Improv, and has also toured overseas to entertain the troops. Currently living in Toronto, Christina tours across Canada with Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Clubs and she’s recently shot her own ‘Comedy Now’ TV special. Her grandfather hails from Scotland and she’s spotted the family name on an Edinburgh Castle memorial wall.
From Canada – Ted Morris. Ted’s intelligent, off-beat humour and wickedly charming smile have earned him a plethora of comedy credits. Born in Ottawa and now making his home in Toronto, Ted discovered his love of stand-up while getting his degree in veterinary medicine. While he still spends some time working as small animal vet, his comedy career is taking off and he has found that it's much more gratifying to "kill" on stage. His grandfather was born in Elgin and his mother is a proud Glaswegian – this will be Ted’s first time in Glasgow.
