Stephen Carlin is a long-time standout from the Edinburgh Fringe.

Scottish comedian Stephen Carlin is the latest act to visit Bangkok thanks to Singapore-based live comedy outfit Magic Rock (past shows: Doug Stanhope, Bill Bailey).

A long-time standout from the Edinburgh Fringe (the UK’s Glastonbury for comedians), Carlin’s acerbic, dour and precisely crafted act has won praise from the likes of standup legend Stewart Lee, who personally selected Carlin for an appearance on his BBC show, and has described the comic as “really brilliant.”
