BBC New Comedy Award Winner
Stephen Buchanan

BBC New Comedy Award Winner

Over The Lyne (OTL) can still remember meeting Stephen Buchanan for the first time at a gig in Edinburgh about 4 or 5 years ago. A friend of OTL introduced him and said “this guy is going places!” OTL presumed he meant going places in comedy, rather than just the mega bus back to Glasgow.  That prediction came true this year when Stephen won the 2018 BBC New Comedy Award.

The “Fun Size” Pride of Scottish Comedy

The Scottish comedy community was united (not a phrase that can NOT often be said) in it’s delight at Stephen’s success. Stephen (who often references his shorter stature “fun size”) is universally liked and respected on the Scottish circuit. He is a real example of a comic who works hard, grafts and crafts his material.

Not just a Stand Up

As well as being a great stand up and all round great guy, Stephen is also a prolific sketch writer and performer. You may have seen some of his sketches on social media. If not then check them out here on BBC Short Stuff

Arise, Sir Billy Connolly

Posted on Updated on

Billy Connolly was honoured with a knighthood this week. For Scots, Billy is universally adored. OTL grew up listening to Billy Connolly. OTL remembers parents secretly laughing (despite their official disapproval of his swearing).

When anyone asks OTL about comedy heroes, Billy is always top of the list. The thing OTL loves the most about Billy is his sense of fun. As much as dark comedy, political comedy and satire are important, Comedy should be fun and Billy does fun in abundance. The twinkle in his eye, his cheeky delivery and the enthusiasm he uses to bring his stories to life are without equal. OTL aspires to bring a fraction of the joy and happiness, Billy has brought to the world.

Below are some of Billy’s greatest words of wisdom.
