  The Very Best in Stand Up is set to give the gift of comedy as our monthly show reaches the final Friday show of 2023.


Taking to the stage in December, we Freddie Quinn returning to oversee the evening. Freddie is the other half of the ‘Dead Men Talking’ podcast alongside October’s compere, Rob Mulholland and comes back to use after last being at the Civic 2 years ago. Freddie’s comedy has taken him all over the country to some of the biggest stages and he’s also completed an Amazon Prime special, titled ‘Quite the Catch’, taken from his 2019 tour of the same name.


Making his first appearance with us is Scottish comedian Gareth Waugh. Starting off his comedy career in 2010, Gareth has found himself supporting the likes of Kathryn Ryan, Daniel Sloss and John Bishop to name a few. In 2023, he took his show ‘I Wouldni Be Me’ to the Edinburgh Fringe, garnering a slew of high praise reviews from the press. Gareth’s got a distinct story-telling style with a likeable persona that you just can’t help to get pulled along with.


Next up is another comic making his debut with us in Simon Wozniak. For both Simon and Gareth, it’s a case of ‘about time’ for then at the Civic, as both have been rip roaring their way through the comedy ranks for a couple of years now. The Scouse comics’ edgy and incisive comedy, peppered with some very cleverly placed punchlines has made Simon ‘one to watch’ status and set gives us a real mix of styles for December’s show.


Closing the show we have a special treat. Star of films such as ‘I, Daniel Blake’, ‘Fisherman’s Friends’ and ‘The Keeper’, Dave Johns. Dave started his stand up career in the 1990’s and has been in demand at all the major comedy clubs in the UK and beyond ever since. Since playing the lead role in Ken Loach’s ‘I, Daniel Blake’, he’s become more and more in demand as an actor but still found time to go back to his roots at the Edinburgh Festival in 2023 with his show ‘A Comic’s Tale’. A fantastic act to see out 2023’s Very Best In Stand Up before we return in February.
