WPB are six rising comedy stars who've been performing in prisons across Scotland since November 2022. With over a dozen shows in the bag, all smash’n’grab hits, plus repeat shows (for good behaviour) already booked, it's an hour of guaranteed laughs and no-holds-barred stand-up for a (not quite) captive audience. Direct from the Big House to the Fringe. This unique showcase of talent is a brilliant concept, perfectly executed by Jack Traynor, Amanda Hursy, Eddy Mackenzie, Paddy Linton, Mikey Motion, and Tattoo Dave. Entry costs less than a packet of smokes.
