Those Glasgow International Comedy Festival (GICF) posters you see around town will soon be recycled. The event’s performers will hit the road again, while its temporary staff will find other work.

And unless you pull your finger out before it finishes on Sunday, you will go on with your dull life – bereft of the laughter it has provided to many over the past two weeks.

Tonight you could really do with heading down to King’s Theatre, where Ardal O’Hanlon – a GICF highlight – will be telling jokes on stage.

You’ll recognise this doe-eyed Irishman from TV shows such as Father Ted and My Hero, or, since, as a multi-award-winning stand-up comedian.

Now in its tenth year, the GICF is continuing its good work – and a Thursday evening with this funnyman wouldn’t be a bad time for you to become a part of it.
