Every month The Drouthy Cobbler is hosting Elgin's first regular comedy club. It's your chance to see established acts and spot the next big thing, all in the intimate setting of The Blue Room.
July's line up is;
MC – Gus Lymburn
Gus Lymburn burst onto the comedy scene in 2006 when he performed at The Stand’s Red Raw night. Since then he’s been charming and disturbing audiences in equal measure (don’t be fooled by the cheeky chappy demeanour, behind the puppy dog eyes lurks a sick mind). Never one to take a standard approach to his stand up, Gus’s act can – and has – incorporated a range of props from noodles to a burka, and on one occasion in a routine described by the Evening News as ‘the act of a desperate man’ – a can of squirty cream. He has even sustained a cracked rib when a mock stage fight with a fellow comic got out of hand.
“Charming and disturbing audiences in equal measure.....” - Scotsman
Opening Act – Ross Leslie
Ross Leslie started Stand Up in early 2012, with a series of “Gong Show” appearances at The Shack Comedy Club in Edinburgh. This school of hard knocks apprenticeship served Leslie well as it has enabled him to blossom into a proper craftsman with well written material, delivered in an easy going style. Ross has stretched his wings and has appeared at comedy clubs all over Scotland and recently venturing further south into Liverpool, Hartlepool and Leicester.
