And we’re back! Kicking off the new year in style with the Blizzard Comedy shenanigans you all know and love!

Blizzard Comedy is a proud safe space with explicit content policies on Racism/sexism/homophobia/transphobia/ablism, and a general blanket ban on being a dick. We also make every effort to content warn any potentially difficult or triggering material ahead of time, and we keep audience participation to a minimal, and only with consent (signified by a sticker you can opt to wear if you are okay with being actively involved with the show)

On top of that we try to have a wide array of acts (subject to availability) So you can be confident you’re never going to end up watching straight white men in shirts for 2 hours, unlike some other comedy clubs which shall remain nameless. (Hint; it’s most of them)

Kicking off our first show of 2020 we have headliner ELEANOR MORTON:
Eleanor Morton is a Scottish stand-up, writer and actor who started performing stand-up when she was 18 years old. She is also a performer with the award-winning London comedy groups Weirdos and Comedian’s Cinema Club, and a board-member of alternative night ACMS.

Eleanor has written for The NewsquizThe Now Show, Newsjack, The BBC Scotland  programmes What’s Funny About The Referendum? and SKETCHLAND, and appeared on BBC Scotland’s ‘Scots Squad’ and the BBC’s online  ‘Room To Write’.
Her most recent TV performance as a stand-up was BBC’s Scotland’s The Comedy Underground. She has also been a panellist and writer on Radio Scotland’s Breaking The News, and appeared on Radio 4 and Radio 4 Extra. She has performed six shows at The Edinburgh Fringe, all at The Stand Comedy Club.  

2019 Pick of the Fringe (Post-Morton) 

Supporting Eleanor we have:

PETER FLEMING:

Retired children's TV pioneer Peter Fleming needs your help. His legendary BBC programmes are lost from the archives, from Professor Zany's Mad Laboratory (1962) to Mrs Peregrine's Wingless Birds (1976). Join this nationwide search for them as Peter reflects on his career, shows off vintage memorabilia and reconstructs classic clips. Help him find all your childhood favourites, and his family if there’s time at the end. 

Mabel Slattery:

Hailing from a small village in Cornwall, Mabel Slattery is presumed to be the result of a clandestine Pagan ritual in which a hobbit, a kitten, a small whirlwind and a thesaurus were inexpertly combined.

Tori Millard:

 Voted 2019s most likely to become patsy stone. She's Loud, she's Proud and she's truly terrified of rejection, which as a amateur stand up comedian has a bliss, beautiful irony to it.

& Marie Goulbourne

Marie Goulbourne is a comedian and actor. Marie enjoys trains, science fiction and talking about herself in the third person.

With ever glamorous and angry host JONNY COLLINS keeping the night moving in their unique style of aggressive inclusivity!
