Keir’s first ever gig saw him win the Dundee heat of the Jongleurs J20 Last Laugh Competition – he went on to win the Scottish final and found himself doing his third ever gig to over 1000 people in London’s Criterion Theatre.
Since then Keir has performed all over Scotland and the UK; appeared at festivals like T in the Park, Belladrum, and Wickerman; and toured much of Scotland and the Highlands with the NHS sponsored Walk in My Shoes Tour – which included such eclectic venues as Barlinnie Prison and a charity shop in Dingwall.
A two-time Scottish Comedian of the Year finalist, Keir has created a string of acclaimed festival shows with other comedians, including the 2015 Scottish Comedy Award Best Live Show-winning Aye Right How No and 2012 sell-out Keir McAllister and Vladimir McTavish Look at the State of Scotland.
Keir’s performing and writing credits for TV and radio include: Breaking The News, The Good Bad and The Unexpected, Karen Dunbar’s Summer Supplement and Janice Foryth's Culture Studio on BBC Radio Scotland; BBC Radio 4's Speakeazy and Comedy Extra; BBC’s Mock the Week and Russell Howard’s Good News; and Channel 4’s Stand Up for the Week.
A Scottish Comedy Award Best Comedy Writer winner, Keir has a number of plays under his belt - Hindsight, which premiered at the Assembly Rooms during the Fringe 2013 and went on to four special performances in HMP Barlinnie before returning for the Glasgow International Comedy Festival in 2014 at the Oran Mor; 2014’s A Split Decision, written in verse, about the Scottish referendum and The Fantastic New Adventures of Greyfriar's Bobby for children; and 2015’s acclaimed The Last Laugh which debuted at the Edinburgh Fringe which went on to tour theatres around Scotland.
