And this year Carina MacLeod, from the Isle of Lewis, is bringing her unique brand of highland humour to the stage The Culross Festival.
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..

The Oor Wullie of Comedy:
His blend of observational humour about the Scottish psyche mixed with up-to-the-minute topicality makes Vladimir’s shows a hit with audiences and critics alike.
So much so, in fact, that his stand up leading up to Scotland's YES NO you decide vote "Aye Right? How No?" The Comedy Countdown to the Referendum, It was featured amongst guest appearances from Rory Bremner and other top comedians, the same routine won the impressive accolade of Best Edinburgh Festival Show at the 2015 Scottish Comedy Awards.
Vladimir’s show, Scotland, 45 Events That Shaped a Nation, was a wow at the Stand Comedy Club in Edinburgh reflecting on the most significant year in the nation’s recent history, with a wry and biting look back at our past and the key moments that forged modern Scotland. Catch him at the Culross Festival. Whatever the material he wont dissapoint.
WRITER’S block is unlikely to be a problem for comedian Gary Meikle.
Like great comics before him, the Glaswegian stand-up draws from bitter life experience that is anything but funny.
Gary, now in his late 30's, was expelled from four schools as a teenager and was put into care at 14 as his chaotic childhood turned into a nightmare, fuelled by drugs, alcohol and petty crime.
He became a dad at 17 after a drunken one-night stand in a cupboard – and somehow got left with the baby.
But Gary, who won the Best Newcomer award at the Scottish Comedy Awards and has been hailed by some as the next Kevin Bridges. He's funny in his own right and his expiriences give him the right to make his audience react to his comedy wrapped up in his forthright honesty.
Graham Stewart is one of Scotland's premier comedy magicians.
