Headline act
Ishi Khan
Multi-award nominee, Ishi Khan has been making people laugh since her birth. She came out crying, to everyone else’s laughter. Her comedy cv began in 2008 when she started hosting her own 2 Funny Comedy events. She has been performing regularly on the comedy circuit ever since.

Ishi responds to current affairs through themes of unity, freedom & equality while exploring identity and belonging.

Ishi is a sentient being born to tickle, play and sing to the moon. Skipping along on the comedic yellow brick road, dancing through rain, sun and fairy dust, distracted by rainbows and shooting stars, she’s a unicorn rider. One day she hopes to do a cartwheel and ride a bike, not at the same time. She speaks English, Punjabi and fluent Cat.

Craig Wilson
Craig Wilson is a nice boy. That’s the reputation he’s gained in his years of doing comedy and his weekly phone all to his gran at least. Craig’s act mixes everyday scenarios with absurd ‘shower-thoughts,’ somehow making him extremely relatable and a total enigma at the same time. Recently featured on BBC Scotland’s #CancelKarenDunbar programme and in publications like Scotland on Sunday and The Skinny as part of his famous gameboy pop band King Wine.
