KEARA'S STAND UP COMEDY STORY SO FAR...
I have performed stand up comedy since 1998. I have toured across Scotland, the wider UK comedy circuit, Ireland and Central Europe. I have performed in comedy clubs, dive bars, large theatres, small theatres, a bus, a boat, the street, a graveyard, a lift (USA elevator) and in someone's living room. No, it wasn't my mum's living room, it was an actual gig at a private party in a posh living room in the New Town, Edinburgh.
I have performed in all the major comedy clubs in the UK including The Comedy Store, The Stand, The Frog & Bucket, The Hyena, The Laughter Lounge, The Belfast Empire, Jongleurs, Highlight and
The Gilded Balloon - and many more.
