Holiday makers and business travellers got more than they bargained for at Glasgow Airport this morning as comedian Bruce Devlin turned chauffeur and welcomed big comedy names to Glasgow to mark the launch of the 10th Glasgow International Comedy Festival.
The airport, which will see comedians from across the UK and beyond flocking to the city to mark the special 10th anniversary comedy occasion, was brought to a standstill as Bruce donned his chauffeur get-up and took to the arrivals gate with welcome signs for big names like Dara O’Briain, Sarah Millican, Rory Bremner and Ardal O’Hanlon.
Glasgow is welcoming comedians from across the globe for the 10th annual Glasgow International Comedy Festival, which kicks off tomorrow (Thursday 15 March).
The city will play host to a bumper gathering of some of the world’s most in-demand comedians until 1 April, with nearly 100,000 tickets available for more than 330 shows across 40 venues.
Funded by Glasgow City Marketing Bureau and Event Scotland, over the last decade the festival has become a city and Scottish institution. Over 600,000 tickets have been sold over the past 10 years, and more than 2,000 comedians have graced the many stages the festival provides throughout the city.
