Following a sell-out season earlier this year, Award-winning Scottish comic Scott Gibson brings his critically-lauded, sold-out Edinburgh Festival Fringe show, Life After Death, to Soho Theatre this Month.
Scott Gibson’s Life After Death tells the tale of the three weeks that changed his life forever. One summer, he returned from his friend’s stag weekend in Blackpool and his brain exploded – he had suffered a massive brain haemorrhage. So, Scott did what any self-respecting Glaswegian man would do: he went back to bed and slept for 4 days.
A darkly hysterical show about overcoming insurmountable odds, Gibson’s Edinburgh Fringe debut has drawn plaudits from audiences and critics alike.
In recent years Scott has successfully established himself as one of the best Scottish Comedians of his generation, a title that was cemented when he received the Edinburgh Comedy Awards’ Best Newcomer trophy at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe. He is also known as Resident MC for BBC Introduces in Scotland, as a host of The Hashtag Show, and has supported some of the biggest names in comedy on their national tours, from Des Clarke and Daniel Sloss, to Kevin Bridges and Frankie Boyle, who describes Scott as a “natural, gifted, and unapologetic storyteller”.
Scott and comedian Richard Gadd made history at the 2016 Edinburgh Comedy Awards when they became the first Scottish winners to scoop both of the main prizes – Best Newcomer and Best Show – in the same year.
