  • On March 29, 2013

Comedian Chris Stephen has teamed up with trained theatre technician Debbie Overell, to become Ginger Ale Comedy, a non-profit organisation committed to showcasing new comic talent and promoting live comedy in Scotland. The last weekend of the 2013 Glasgow International Comedy Festival sees Ginger Ale complete a Glasgow Festival first “At this year’s Glasgow International Comedy Festival, we are attempting one of the biggest undertakings the city has ever seen… Ginger Ale Comedy is doing a Round-the-Clock Comedy Roadshow in order to raise money for Clyde Cash4Kids, with shows scattered throughout many of Glasgow’s biggest venues. We will perform 14 consecutive shows over 2 days, and all for charity! We will showcase some of Scotland’s finest performers, ventriloquists, improvisers and stand-up comedians, and joining us to prove their mettle we have elite up-and-coming comedians, who have been performing for many years and are already veterans of The Stand, Gilded Balloon, the Edinburgh Fringe and have been a part of Scottish Comedian of the Year, plus guest acts from all corners of the globe!”  – Chris Stephen March 2013

Tickets for the paid venues will be on sale very soon through TicketSoup. We also have ticket packages throughout the weekend, this will include special offers from selected venues. For eg. 25% off the food bill, cheap food/drink offers and many more. These packages will be on sale through TicketSoup, starting from £15 to £25.
