Neil McFarlane


"at it” for a bit.  He started his comedy
career in Scotland, twenty-three (christ) years ago, and now performs across
the length and breadth of the British Isles, attracting widespread disdain.  He’s also entertained international audiences
in places as far-flung as the United States, Canada, Tenerife, Serbia, Romania,
Norway, Germany, Malta and the two Channel Islands you can actually get to.

Neil reached the Scottish
regional final of the BBC New Comedy Awards in 2001, came third in ‘Scottish Comedian
of the Year’ in 2006, and moved to London to become a full-time stand-up in
2009, which almost worked.


He’s performed solo shows at the
Glasgow, Manchester, Bath and Brighton comedy festivals, as well as an
unspecified number of full runs at the Edinburgh Fringe. He now lives in
south-west London and spent much of the lockdown menacing wildlife in Richmond
Park.  He is now the acquaintance of
several deer but REALLY needs to perform to people again, mostly.


McFarlane has had all the bloody jabs going and frequently
keeps his clothes on. Allow him gently to divert you from the horrific truth of
your own existential plight and occasionally to use the word 'seepage'.
