The line-up has been revealed for The Comedians at the Kings. The two nights of gigs at the Kings Theatre in Glasgow as part of the Glasgow Comedy Festival will be a showcase for experienced comedians who do not regularly feature on mainstream television at the moment (though some names should certainly be familiar from television).
