Joe Heenan



Joe Heenan Bio

Chortle award & 7 time Scottish comedy award nominee – Joe Heenan, has appeared on BBC Scotland for The Comedy Underground & Breaking the News. Several sold out Edinburgh fringe shows & appeared at the New York comedy festival. Hailing from sunny Perth, this is one comic with two sides. Cheeky chappy he may be, but many a heckler has made the mistake of thinking that’s all there is…

Joe had his first gig in the Grassmarket in Edinburgh in 1995 and has been a professional comic for the last three years. He has gigged all over Britain and is a regular at The Stand’s Best of Scottish Comedy shows, which sell out every Fringe.

Career highlights include an appearance on The Weakest Link Stand-up Special. At least, it was a highlight, until Des Clarke voted him off. Joe has, understandably, never quite forgiven him.

A writer as well as a performer, Joe has had success in radio and television comedy with credits on The Karen Dunbar Show, The Live Floor Show and Chewing the Fat. Joe has also appeared in advertising campaigns for Bank of Scotland and the Scottish Sun.
