One summer, comedian Scott Gibson returned from a friend’s stag weekend in Blackpool and his brain exploded – he had suffered a massive brain haemorrhage. So, Scott did what any self-respecting Glaswegian man would do: he went back to bed and slept for 4 days. Eventually waking up to discover he was now blind in one eye and – worse! - still had a thumping headache.
Life After Death tells the story of the three weeks that changed Scott’s life forever. From Blackpool to Glasgow to the Neurology Capital of Europe (…Govan!), Scott Gibson’s debut is at once a darkly hysterical and inspiring show, delivered with the trademark filthy charisma that Scott has rapidly become renowned for. Life After Death is a tale of love and pain, and fear and hope. It’s about overcoming insurmountable odds, and how comedy can bring you back to life.
Gibson has successfully made a name for himself as one of the great emerging Scottish comics in recent years. This was cemented when Scott became the recipient of the Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer 2016 award for his sold out 27 day run of Life After Death at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
