The Last Laugh Tour - Beacon Arts Centre, Greenock

A new play written by and starring award winning playwright Keir McAllister directed by Shauna MacDonald. Following, a successful Edinburgh Fringe Festival run at the Assembly Rooms, George Street - The Last Laugh takes to the road. 

The Last Laugh mixes stand-up, theatre and storytelling in a tale about two people discovering whether being funny is as important as being happy. Join Eddie Butler the next big thing in comedy - well he used to be before he met new kid on the block Grace (played by up and coming stand up Larah Bross). Grace knows you should never date a comedian, comics are generally considered worse lifestyle choices than Scientology...and for good reason. Will Grace follow the advice? Will Eddie finally decide whether being funny is as important as being happy?
