Cottingham Comedy Club presents Paul Pirie plus support

About Cottingham Comedy Club presents Paul Pirie plus support

Following our triumphant return in September, we’re pleased to announce our next show.
We are back again at the newly refurbished Back Room in Cottingham, with yet another fantastic headliner in Paul Pirie.
A brilliant natural comedian, Paul comes packed full of energy and uses every ounce to maximum effect, with superb delivery.
“a most impressive physical comedian…”
– Chortle
With a set that jumps from bitchy to silly, you’re never more than a line away from a great pun, insight or well crafted punch line, delivered with a ferocity that makes Paul’s humble beginnings on the Scottish circuit seem such a long time ago.
“a hilarious rubber faced clown”
– The Scotsman
Paul’s career has encompassed TV, Film and Radio alongside his skills as a stand-up, and he is now one of the biggest Scottish acts on the UK comedy circuit.
He’s a confident and intelligent comedian who makes it his mission to work and entertain his audience. Paul’s material is superbly individual and put simply, and always delivers a refreshing burst of laugh out loud comedy that leaves audiences in raptures.
“Fizzing with energy and spewing out one-liners like he had just scoffed a dodgy prawn, Pirie is a man we will be seeing more of ”
– Daily Record
Paul’s physical, theatrical presence on stage and his sharp, rapid-fire comedy onslaught is packed with highly entertaining material, which blurs the lines between real-life anecdotes and flight of fancy. Its been observed that he channels the late Robin Williams at his most excitable; Pirie’s act is absolutely hilarious.
“His clowning and quick fire gags will win him fans.. his physical mannerisms have a touch of Eric Morecambe”
– The Daily Record
Paul’s hilarity and comedic ability has earned him huge popularity with comedy goers and bookers across the world, gigging from Australia to shows for the Armed Forces. He is a regular performer at the UK’s best comedy clubs and was simply born to entertain.
“Supercilious Paul Pirie…. was the stand-out star of the night; a Frankie Boyle you could actually book. He shares the tabloid whipping boy’s uncompromising Scottish bluntness, but while the put-downs he describes are hilariously brutal, they steer clear of outright unpleasantness. Silly little jokes soften the blow, and he’s got some impressive, offbeat one-liners to keep the gag rate high. The intolerant grumpiness is thus combined with impressive efficiency, and the result is a definite hit”
– Chortle
“inherently funny”
– Edinburgh Guide
Plus support including your favourites Rich Austin and Jed Salisbury

Running since 2016, Cottingham Comedy Club, the village’s best* comedy venue, provides an unique comedy experience in many ways. This intimate club gets you up close and personal with the acts, many of whom are breaking through into TV, or are established acts from the UK and international comedy circuit. We are a welcoming venue and we have a dedicated room for the comedy, with regular breaks between the acts for you to lubricate your throats with laughter juice. With four acts and a compere it’s great value for money at less than £2 per comedian. We think it’s the most fun you can have with friends on a midweek night out.
We aim to run this as a regular night again, on the second Thursday of every month, as we were pre-pandemic (except occasionally when we can’t be arsed).
