Carina is a comic veteran her show ‘44’- an age she's been anxious about reaching was a smash at Glasgow's Live International Comedy Festival.

Things she has said:

My show this year is a mixture of nostalgia, talking about new trends and people who celebrate dead people’s birthdays!

I don’t really have any pre gig rituals, I just make sure I’m wearing a pair of killer heels for the show. As long as you’re wearing clean pants and pretty shoes, you can’t go wrong.

"I remember waking up at a party in Glasgow when I was 17, under the stairs on a dog blanket and not knowing anyone. That was an eye opener for any Hebridean."

"I’m from the same village as Donald Trump’s mother!"

Please dont hold that against her..
