Billy Kirkwood’s is a bonafide ‘comedy fizz bomb’ who first burst into stand up in 2005 and his massive on stage energy has gifted him with a massive cult following. He quickly established himself as one of Scottish comedy’s most up and coming young acts who is forever expanding. This is thanks to his unique yet slightly surreal style of story telling, likeable and energetic on – stage presence, neat non existent attention span, and is widely regarded as a must see act that leaves audiences sore with laughter.
His surreal style of storytelling and near non-existent attention span means that that he often covers dozens and dozens of subjects within his set, to the audience’s utter thrill.
Often hailed for the mischievous glint in his eyes, Kirkwood has also been called ‘The Glaswegian Peter Kay’ for the exploration of childhood nostalgia in his gags. Billy regularly appears on BBC Radio Scotland. And has written for CBBC sketch show ‘Hedz’.
