The Chieftain Comedy Club, which meets on the first Thursday of every month at the Chieftain Hotel in Inverness, has since its inception in early 2022 become established as the home of Highland Comedy.
The club, which helps both established and new comedians with writing and performing has seen its members perform across the UK and Europe and has also led to the formation of a number of professional acts that are making their mark on the Scottish comedy scene.
The latest comedy club night, to be held at 8pm this coming Thursday 2 November, will feature some of the best acts in the Highlands today.
Hosted by Dingwall legend Iain Duncan, who has taken Scotland by storm over the past year, the evening will also feature club stalwarts Tom ‘The Cotswold Count’ Cairns and Charlye McMillan.
Those who have benefited from the club are the ‘Rude and Good’ comedy show.
“As ‘Rude & Good’, our comedy has performed at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival” said Joe Sweeney, the club’s Creative Convenor “and we recently appeared at the inaugural Aberdeen Fringe where we were described as the ‘top up and coming’ comedians in Scotland.
“The other half of Rude & Good, Rab Mulheron, has also just returned from a second year at the Edinburgh Fringe and we’ve continued our touring this autumn in Ireland and Spain”.
Also appearing on Thursday are Mike Linnet and Marc Webb.
Mike and Marc have both become club regulars over the past few months and have also appeared professionally in the Inverness area.
Liz Lawson, proprietor of the Chieftain Hotel said:
“I’m delighted to continue to help support the club and give them a regular venue.
“We’ve seen a lot of new faces over the past few months and a club like this can only help others who want to see if a career in comedy is for them.”
The club can be contacted via the Chieftain Comedy Club Facebook page, it’s for adults only and has free entry for anyone who wants to head along and hear the best of Highland Comedy.
