A weekly night of comedy featuring new and experienced acts in a friendly intimate atmosphere
Comedy at the State presents
GIGGLES AT NINE
What better way to spend a Saturday night than having a laugh in the company of a great line up of comedians. In the upstairs bar we have a fine selection of real ales which you can try out before the show begins. It’s a traditionally atmospheric bar and not overpriced (check out our prices below) Positioned between Bath Street and Sauchiehall Street in the heart of restaurant land. Why not make a night of it and have a curry first .
Nik Coppin, whose mother is English and father is from Barbados, started performing comedy in around 2000, and has since gigged in France, Germany, Spain, Austria, New Zealand and Australia.It was there he performed his debut solo show Spiders! at the Melbourne International Comedy festival in 2006 before taking it to Edinburgh later that year.

“Amazingly funny stories, wickedly clever insights and a sense of fun that will drag anyone in. Super funny, super fun and charisma up the wazoo, Nik’s awesome! 9/10 – Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2009.
“The banter is slick and engaging. He goes off on the sort of wild tangents beloved of messers Izzard and Noble” – Chortle.co.uk, Edinburgh Fringe 2008
