Scottish Comedian Rosco McClelland is riding high on the current Scottish comedy revival, he’s one of its brightest stars with professional accolades to prove he is something special.

Twice nominated Best Newcomer at the Scottish Comedy Awards and winner of the Scottish Comedian of the year in 2016, his endearing onstage presence has impressed judges and audiences alike.

Rosco was chosen as one of Chortle’s ‘Comedian’s to watch’ back in 2017 for his unique comedic voice. His offbeat musings and exaggerated visual imagery feel natural and not forced and he never fails to leave audiences wanting more. He has sold out shows at Adelaide Fringe Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe – continually bringing performances that show his comedic brilliance.

In 2024, he was shortlisted for the Sir Billy Connolly Spirit of Glasgow award – a prestigious award which aims to celebrate the city and the famous warmth, resilience, and humour of Glasgow.

Rosco regularly performs across the UK top clubs including Glee, The Stand, Blackpool Comedy Station, Monkey Barrel and many more.
