He also has limited tickets left for several other shows across the country as he bring his all-new material to audiences near and far.

The show has proved to be a huge hit to date and internet sensation Gary, of Glasgow, who also works as a full time gas engineer at Ideal Heating and Faulds Gas Services, is delighted to be returning to Gala.

He said: “I’m absolutely buzzing to be back in Galashiels this summer at the amazing MacArts Theatre – what a venue that place is.

“I’m so excited to be bringing my new material and sharing some banter with the good people of the Borders.”
