Humour from the Highlands arrives in Barcelona for a night of sarcastic satire and clever comedy with John Scott. The Scottish comedian first stepped on stage in 1999, impressing spectators with his stand-up skills before making his first appearance at the world’s largest arts festival, the Edinburgh Fringe, two months later. Now a regular at the annual festival, Scott’s witty banter ensures his shows are playful yet intelligent, drawing on controversial social and political themes such as benefit fraud, social class, racism and homophobia. Dubbed a ‘political comedy built from the grassroots up…with a spiky sense of humour’ (Glasgow Herald), Scott has shown his ability to entertain with a raw sense of originality. Having performed as a warm-up act for the likes of fellow Scotsman Frankie Boyle and Bafta-nominated English comedian Stewart Lee, Scott’s comic value ensures The Shamrock will be delivering bags of belly laughs throughout the night. The Off-Fringe special kicks off the new season of monthly shows from Guiriness Comedy Barcelona, hosted at the Irish bar.
