My Best of Glasgow: Comedian Gary Faulds

Local comedian Gary Faulds is bringing a new show to his fourth Glasgow Comedy Festival this March. A fast paced, punchline-packed, relatable show sees the tonic wine fueled yum yum destroyer welcoming his audience to the town of Seshlehem, a place where it’s illegal to be a VL, salads are forbidden and gyms are used as torture.

Before Gary’s appearance at the Whyte and Mackay Glasgow International Comedy Festival, we asked him to tell us about his favourite people and places in the city.

When you are with friends in Glasgow, what do you like to do?

Me and my mate Barry Sloan enjoy man dates like snooker, cinema or discussing how our wives give us a hard time for doing too much around the house.
