The Late Show

About The Late Show

The Whyte & Mackay Glasgow International Comedy Festival introduces the famous Blackfriars late show!

A festival institution for over 15 years, a handpicked selection of home grown and international acts alike grace the stage every March for some late night comedy shenanigans in the perfect setting.

Past acts include Jason Byrne, Reginald D Hunter and Brendon Burns as well as the cream of Scottish comedy talent such as Gary Little, Raymond Mearns and Janey Godley.
Watch the best stand up from across the festival how it should be…late…live…and in a basement.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Late Show are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
