Stand-up comedy is often hilarious, and occasionally inappropriate or can be considered offensive. These shows are not for the faint-hearted and you should not attend if easily offended. We will not refund tickets if you don't like the content!
The Drouthy Cobbler's monthly comedy club returns with another great line up of Scotland's best stand up comics.
The MC this time round is club favourite Gus Lymburn - always a brilliant host and one who builds a great rapport with the audience.
Blackpool comedian and singer Ruth E Cockburn will feature. Since doing her first gig at the Frog and Bucket in Manchester she has travelled all over the country and performed in many different comedy clubs.
Ruth has performed three solo shows at the Edinburgh and Buxton Fringe , receiving rave reviews and performing to sell out rooms.

The middle acts are to be confirmed.
The closing act will be Eddy Brimson. Watford boy Eddy is one of the most interesting, considered and thoughtful comedians on the circuit. Comedian Eddy Brimson has also turned his attention to television, appearing as an actor in the likes of Thin Blue Line, Casualty, Between The Lines, Silent Witness, Absolutely Fabulous and EastEnders - he was the vicious lout who turned over Frank Butcher's car lot. He also played a major role as a gang member in the HBO movie The Infiltrator.
Eddy has tried his hand at presenting, hosting a show on Bravo called The Basement, covering topics ranging from the British Lawn Mower Grand Prix to a live hair transplant - all quality stuff. He also hosted The Brimson Brothers with (you've guessed it) his brother Dougie on Liberty Radio. It was round about this time that a friend gave him a leaflet about a course in stand-up comedy with a "resting" comedian. The rest as they say is history as Eddy Brimson has emerged to become one of the leading headline comics in British comedy and around the world. It's not all been plain sailing as a comedian. Eddy endured one 15-minute slot being heckled by the whole audience before he'd even uttered a word and performing naked to a mixture of "perverts and students" in one of several visits to Edinburgh. But generally it's been one mighty success story for Eddy Brimson has finally found his niche in life. "Once you've done it - stood up on stage and made people laugh - you've had it - and that's in a good way".
Eddy has a sell-out series of shows in Australia under his belt and has performed at both the Camden Fringe with his Kids show, and Edinburgh as part of the acclaimed and sold out Midnight at the Gilded Balloon show. Eddy Brimson played the first ever Altitude Festival in the French Alps in 2008 and the Sydney Cracker Festival in Australia. Eddy has also taken his comedy to such far flung places as Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Bahrain. On television, as well as the numerous stand-up comedy shows, Eddy Brimson is one of those ubiquitous talking heads on shows like as I Predict a Riot, The Confessions of Series, 100 Worst Singles and, of course, the Britain’s Toughest Series, while appearing with Richard and Judy to ask the question "is bald sexy?"
