Scott Gibson: Anywhere But Here
Saturday 20 October 2018 / £12.00 and £10.00
Award-winning comedian Scott Gibson is back on the road with his eagerly anticipated third solo tour, Anywhere But Here.
Scott was just 16 when he first tasted freedom from the shackles of parental control. Only a wee thing, he was
accompanied by an army of seven fearless school friends as they left the rural idylls of Renfrewshire behind
them, setting course for a voyage of discovery.
Their destination? Kavos, of course. Where else?
Delivered in his breathlessly inimitable style, Gibson takes you on an epic odyssey that charts the bullheaded
adventures and choppy waters of youth. A reflective and blisteringly funny treatise on the escapism and
hedonism that travel promises, this is a story about friendship, love, pool parties, travel insurance, pushing your
limits, plunging headfirst into the deep and the Greek third-choice goalie.
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 Fringe.
In 2017, Scott embarked on a sell-out, nationwide tour of his smash-hit debut hour, Life After Death, which included a month-long
residency at London’s Soho Theatre.
