BBC New Comedy Award Winner

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
