Go compère!

We're very excited to announce that the very first Bright Club Glasgow will be hosted by comedy Godfather, BRUCE MORTON!

Resident weegie and circuit veteran Bruce offers "gesture and commentary of the highest class" (The Observer), is "devastatingly funny... wry and poignant" (The Scotsman) and "has reinvented comedy" (The Independent).

Bruce interviewed Bright Club Edinburgh performers for BBC Radio Scotland back in August with amusing results! It's going to be fun night....

Half of online tickets are now sold out. Get yours here:

Glasgow Skeptics event

The esteemed Glasgow Skeptics are running a competition next month called SpeedScience in which scientists are given three minutes to present their research in an exciting and innovative way. It's sure to be a lot of fun, so if you're in Glasgow then get yourself down to The Admiral on the 8th November.

What's more, all competitors will receive a free ticket to Bright Club Glasgow's debut show on 17th November! Sounds good to me...
