Alistair Barrie is one of the top headliners on the international comedy circuit. He has performed in over 40 countries including acclaimed performances in Australia, Cape Town, Mumbai and the legendary Comedy Cellar in New York. He is a regular at London’s world-famous Comedy Store and a core member of their weekly topical ‘Cutting Edge’ team.
He has made countless appearances at UK Festivals including Glastonbury, Latitude, Bestival and Green Man and taken several solo shows to Edinburgh. His 2013 and 2015 shows were runners up for ‘Best Show at The Fringe’ with the latter transferring to London for a run at The Soho Theatre. He's back from another wildly successful, sell-out run of his new show The InternationAL, which garnered 5 star reviews in The Scotsman
Alistair is a frequent panelist on BBC Scotland’s award-winning ‘Breaking the News’ and has appeared on radio and television all over the world, from ‘Good Morning South Africa’ to ‘The Blame Game’ in Northern Ireland. An equal opportunities satirist, he is possibly the only comedian to have performed at both the Labour and Conservative Party conferences.
"No one does righteous indignation with the same brio as Barrie, an inheritor of the splenetic mantle of the great 80s alternative comedians.” Guardian
“Barrie’s analytical nous and store of snappy gags mark him out…Excellent." The Independent
"A no-frills master of his craft" ***** The Scotsman
