Phil Differ

In a career spanning over thirty five years, Phil has been behind many of Scotland’s most popular and best loved comedy shows, and has worked with the cream of Scottish comedy talent including Rikki Fulton, Gregor Fisher, Elaine C. Smith, Craig Ferguson, and Robbie Coltrane - lifting some awards in the process as well as accumulating more than a few showbiz tales along the way.   

Phil began his comedy career as a writer providing gags and sketches for such shows as Not the Nine O’Clock News and Spitting Image before becoming a Senior Producer in BBC Scotland’s Comedy Unit, the department responsible for, among others, Naked Video, Rab C. Nesbitt, Scotch and Wry, City Lights and, the show Phil is best known for, Only An Excuse? 

After leaving the BBC to form an independent production company, Phil and The Comedy Unit went on to chalk up even more success with Chewin’ the Fat, Still Game, Offside and Watson’s Wind Up.  

As well as continuing to write, produce and direct for television, radio and theatre, Phil is a regular on Scotland’s thriving stand-up comedy circuit as well as a popular speaker at Sportsman’s dinners and Burns Suppers.

Jim "Buller" Reid

Cumnock legend Jim "Buller" Reid is a highly regarded speaker with many Sportsman’s & after-dinner events under his belt. He is a much sought after and prestigious after- dinner speaker who is very funny and extremely entertaining.

Mitchell Gibb

Mitchell works tirelessly for charity and is in constant demand as an after-dinner speaker and comedian. He is equally at home at Golf, Football or Rugby Clubs, Rotary or Round Table events. After his success in chairing our previous Dinners we are delighted that he has returned again this year to be MC.
