Eddie Cassidy finally began performing stand up comedy in 2009, after many years of threatening to do so, and ever since then has been entertaining crowds at comedy clubs, pubs and festivals up and down the country, earning the title of Scottish Comedian of the year in 2012.
This unassuming Glaswegian immediately entertains with hilarious, articulate observations which he fuses with sadistic dry Scottish humour. His topics are dark and funny but his manner is endearing, and with this great combination he pulls this off with confidence and wit, fully deserving of the Scottish Comedian of the Year 2012 title. – Mumble Comedy
A clear winner, Sex Drugs and Tennis Players – The Scotsman
It could be lucky number seven for the Scottish Comedian Of The Year. In its seventh winner, Eddie Cassidy, the contest has unearthed a strong prospect for the future. He has a quirky point of view, original and efficient gags, and an authentic voice, which combine in a routine that always has you interested, and often has you laughing. – Chortle
