Back in 1999 / 2000 the Geordie surrealist superstar, a regular guest on Have I Got News For You and Just A Minute, swapped the big stage for performing on top of 6 beer crates, doing us the great honour of performing at Ha Ha Comedy's 1st and 2nd anniversary gigs in Altrincham.

Alan Carr 
Ha Ha Comedy saw Channel 4 Friday Night Project star Alan Carr perform his first ever comedy spot at a competition in Manchester. 

He was so good the next week we gave him his first paid gig, then his first headline spot and first solo show. 

He recently appeared with us as a special guest at Maxwell's Fullmooners during the 2007 Glasgow Comedy Festival.

Matt Horne & Bruce Mackinnon -mat-and-mackinnon

Upon seeing their first open spot, Ha Ha Comedy gave Matt, along with double act partner Bruce MacKinnon, their first paid spots, headline spots and solo shows, which included a tour of The Hebrides where they ran Comedy workshops for school children.



The Big Yin Revisited
Just like his hero Billy Connolly, Garry Moir used to work in the shipyards on the Clyde. A former ITV Stars in Their Eyes Winner Garry started performing stand up comedy six years ago.

Annoyed with continually being told he sounded too much like the Big Yin he thought stuff it - If ye cannae beat them - impersonate them. 

Over the past four years Ha Ha Comedy has promoted The Big Yin Revisited festival shows, selling out bigger and bigger venues every single time. 

The Wee Man
With over a Million hits on Youtube and other video sites, The Wee Man has come a long way since his first open spot with Ha Ha Comedy.

His brother won our first Gong Show - the prize a case of beer. A year later the Wee Man won our Grand Gong Show - the prize 1,000.

Since then he got through to the final of the Scottish Comedian of the Year and into the pop charts with Neds Kru.

Patrick Monahan
Patrick Monahan first did an open spot for Ha Ha Comedy in Sept 2000. He was amazing - even better than the 3 time Perrier nominated headliner - we took him for a late night chinese meal before putting him back on the night train to London.

Since then he has become our favourite Irish Iranian comedian and has followed n the footsteps of Jimmy Carr and Alan Carr as the warm up man on BBC's Friday Night with Jonathon Ross.

Johnny Vegas
In the time before his friendship with a certain monkey Johnny Vegas was a regular with Ha Ha Comedy. In January 2000 we booked a show for Johnny in a small room ( 70 capacity ) above a pub in Altrincham. 

No tickets were sold in advance. If you were lucky you could only get into the gig by purchasing a raffle ticket at the downstairs bar from 5pm on the night of the show. A lucky 45 tickets were pulled  out the hat for an amazing show.

Over 400 people turned up trying to see the show - many of the unlucky ones waited downstairs in hope of catching a glimpse oft the big man. At the end of the night he appeared for them - bollock naked.

Lucy Porter
Before she hit the big time Lucy Porter was a regular headliner at Ha Ha Comedy gigs up and down the country.

Ha Ha Comedy promoted Lucy's first Glasgow Comedy Festival shows back in 2003, since then she has become one of the star attractions at festivals across the globe.

Lucy Porter joined us as a special guest at this years NO2ID gig in Glasgow's Old Fruitmarket.

Nina Conti
A long standing regular headliner at Ha Ha Comedy gigs, BBC New Comedy Award Winner Nina Conti had her first Glasgow Comedy Festival shows promoted by Ha Ha Comedy. Nina's 2003 show was the very first festival show to sell out.

Since then Nina has gone on to star in many TV and adio comedies, most notably with Dylan Moran and Bill Bailey in Black Books.
