Keir started stand up in April 2004 when he entered the Dundee heat of the Jongleurs J20 Last Laugh Competition. Despite it being his first ever gig, he won and went on to win the Scottish final and found himself doing his third ever gig to over 1000 people in London’s Criterion Theatre, Piccadilly Circus. He came runner up.
Keir went on to have a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2004 with a show called “Rehab’s for Quitter’s” “where he teamed up with comedy partner Paul Pirie. The following year he was part of the sell-out show “Scotland 4 Australia 1” in the Glasgow Comedy Festival which went on to have a further very successful run in the Edinburgh Fringe 2005. He and Paul Pirie also hosted their own late night comedy show.
Keir has gigged all over Scotland and the UK and can be seen regularly working for people like The Stand, HaHa Comedy and The Last Laugh Comedy Clubs. He has also had a string of successful festival shows with other comedians. He first teamed up with Paul Pirie in the 2006 Glasgow Comedy Festival called “Dare you Seesaw” as well as featuring in another collaboration (featuring Susan Calman and Ro Campbell among others) “Four Men and a Little Lady.”
