AWARD-WINNING stand-up comedian Gary Meikle will perform in Elgin as pat of his upcoming UK tour.

Called Surreal, it reflects on Meikle’s last 12 months, having started the year performing in comedy clubs and ending it selling out theatres across the globe.

That came after one of the stand-up's videos about his daughter's eyebrow’s went viral.

He said: "2019 has been such a surreal year for me since the videos took off, and I’m excited to get back to stand up with this new 2020 tour and to tell audiences about how I've been dealing with all the madness."

Having performed to tens of thousands of people over the past year, Gary has found a new confidence and level of openness on stage, meaning he doesn’t hold back on giving his opinions, no matter how warped.

The new show will cover topics such as evolution, social media, how to deal with burglars, single mums, bee sex, small man syndrome and more.

The Glaswegian, who has been on the comedy circuit as a stand-up since 2014, was named at the top of The List’s Comedy Hot 100 for 2019.

Tickets are on sale now via Elgin Town Hall For the Community.
