Carlin has earned critical acclaim, accolades and a growing fanbase with his original and insightful writing style and accomplished delivery. He is very enigmatic act, using a unique pattern of delivery to amuse the audience with very unexpected and off the wall references. From his sartorial elegance to his in-depth and hilarious knowledge of International snooker, Carlin’s performance takes the audience into the mind of a passionate obsessive. This man is well on his way to become Scotland's newest addition to its history of brilliant comedians.
Named by Stewart Lee as one of the ‘Ten Best Comedians in the World Ever’..
