Young comedian Ryan McGuigan will have Lanarkshire in stitches once more as he stars in The Therapy Room Comedy Weekender next month.

They say laughter is the best medicine, and at The Therapy Room, a jam-packed comedy weekender, you’re guaranteed to leave feeling fantastic.

The Therapy Room Comedy Weekender will see famed comedians Gary Delaney and Milton Jones take to the stage at Motherwell Concert Hall on Friday, October 21, and Saturday, October 22, respectively.

Comedy isn’t just for adults though and St Margaret’s High pupil Ryan brings his special brand of stand-up and live music to Airdrie Town Hall on Sunday, October 23, headlining alongside other young comedians in a fun family-friendly afternoon gig.

The 14-year-old first made headlines after his Alex Salmond impression caused a stir during the Scottish referendum, with the former First Minister retweeting a video of the skit.

Despite his young age Ryan shows bags of confidence once the spotlight is on him.

He said: “Before I go on stage, I read over my script, take a walk around and just wait to be called.

“I maybe feel some butterflies, well caterpillars actually, because once I’m on stage I just feel great! Once I come off stage I think to myself, why was I ever nervous?.”
