Fringe Preview Show
Raymond Mearns is one of the UK’s busiest circuit comics and can be seen regularly performing at venues all across the country and frequently on the International Comedy Circuit
Successful Edinburgh Festival Fringe shows every year from 2011 till 2017 have shown that Raymond has a considerable ability to keep his stand-up fresh, relevant and most of all extremely funny.
Described by Frankie Boyle as ‘a genuine improvisational genius’, Raymond Mearns is at last gaining wider recognition as one of the most consistent comedians in the land.
All the while Raymond has also balanced his comedy career to incorporate work as a character actor in film and TV, with roles in “Rab C Nesbitt”, “River City”,“Limmy’s Show” and “Legit’”.
In 2014 Raymond completed work on “Planet Mearns” A Comedy Sketch Pilot for BBC Radio Scotland, and this led to the further commissioning of a “Planet Mearns – Christmas Special” that was broadcast at 5pm on BBC Radio Scotland on Christmas Day.
Raymond’s Films include “Ae Fond Kiss” (2004) and
“It’s a Free World” (2007), both directed by Ken Loach and the ITV1 Drama “Doors Open” (2012) written by Ian Rankin and starring Stephen Fry.
