Comedy Night - Featuring Jay Lafferty & Chris Forbes
Saturday 11 February 2023 - From 8 pm until 10 pm
Crail Community Hall has secured two great Scottish Comedians to bring top comedy to Crail. Each will perform a set of 40 minutes with a break between them to allow the audience to recover from the non-stop hillarity.
Jay has been performing comedy since 2005 working all over the UK as well as performing in New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, Reykjavik and Amsterdam. An experienced compere and stand-up Jay has an easy manner on stage, instantly connecting with her audience – whether a rowdy group of stags and hens or a serene ladies luncheon.
The girl next door persona allows her to get a way with the darker jokes that punctuate her material. Her comedy has been described as chocolate covered hand grenades. Don’t be mistaken Jay’s personality can melt butter – sometimes by using a flamethrower. Clever material delivered with effortless charm and packing a bite every bit as bad as its bark.
An experienced writer and performer Jay has worked on a number of hit BBC Scotland and BBC Four radio shows and one of the longest running panelist on Radio Scotland’s Breaking The News. Jay also secured a small part on Season 2 of The Comedy Unit’s hit BBC1 show Scot Squad.
