The Burns Night Special: The Voodoo Room’s Restaurant are serving a Burns supper to all attendees. This would traditionally comprise a main course portion of Haggis mashed potatoes (tatties) and mashed turnip (neeps). We’ll be providing you with a Whisky to toast the Haggis. No doubt we’ll be keeping the tradition alive with some Robbie Burns poetry. We may even find a friend who can play the bagpipes.
Comedy, Live Music & DJs. A live band open the bill, followed by 2 hours of comedy from 7.30pm, then more live music, and a DJ from 9pm - late. The Friday Fix packs a whole lot of entertainment into your Friday night.

After 2009's sell-out success looking at great icons of Scottish history and culture, in 2010 'Scotland's top satirical stand-up' (Morning Star), turned his attention to our national drink. During 2010’s festival Vlad narrated a tour round whisky country and a hilariously sobering look at drink and its role in the Caledonian psyche. An Eejit's Guide to The Bevvy. Ideal for malt connoisseurs, tee-totallers and binge-drinkers alike.
One of the finest acts on the Scottish comedy circuit, sensitive and yet issues startling invective
Ayrshire born comic Billy Kirkwood burst into stand up in 2005. Quickly establishing himself as one of the United Kingdom’s comedy's most watchable acts, with an ever expanding, cult following, thanks to his unique, yet slightly surreal style of storytelling, near non existent attention span, likeable on-stage presence and inventive energetic performances.
Effortlessly Funny, something for everyone
Undeniably funny, unspeakably juvenile
A Hairy Hurricane who accompanied the heartiest laughts of the night with a keen comic mind
Naturally funny, fizzing with energy
With wild hair with a cheeky glint in his eye with a dynamic onstage presence, powerhouse delivery, hit's comedy pay dirt!
Our compere for the evening.

Recently crowned Scottish Comedian of the Year 2011. Jamie has only been performing 18 months and is fast becoming a national treasure. He paints a comical picture of Glasgow characters, merging anecdote and observation together with a healthy dose of refreshing congeniality. A committed atheist, his material on religion and its defects is delivered with impressive drollness and reserve. An all round solid and shrewd performer.
An up and coming act, a quick taste for the future.
