Bruce Devlin burst onto the Scottish comedy scene when he stole the show at a stand-up comedy course graduation showcase in October 2000 where he was described as ‘a natural performer and in total control of the audience' Evening News . Since then this outgoing, original and outrageous performer has graced many stages with his magnetic presence.

From early 2001 he was regularly performing to a fast-growing fan base in central Scotland and ever since has been consistently appearing to rapturous audiences. Bruce has notched up an impressive number of Edinburgh Festival Fringe shows including Three Fat Ladies: A Murder Mystery (2001), Stand Up Scotland (2001) of which The Scotsman critic wrote ‘for a fiver you get five comics…Devlin, who MC's, is worth that on his own'. Bruce's solo debut came in 2002 with One Fat Lady: Diva to Dosser a semi-autobiographical comedy play. Bruce also worked on the Johnny Vegas show, Who's Ready for Ice-cream (2003) and directed Magic Mandy Muden in her acclaimed show Burn the Witch (2004).

Bruce would be an ideal Master of Ceremonies for any event that required a light-hearted touch. Bruce is a resident compere at The Stand in Edinburgh and regularly comperes at the weekend shows. Bruce was also a resident at the topical satire show A Kick up the Tabloids and a favourite at the award winning gay/gay friendly night Oot. Bruce also keeps himself busy as a frequent contributor to The Fred MacAulay Show (BBC Radio Scotland) and co-starred with Jane Mackay and Hazel O'Connor in We Three - an innovative new sitcom pilot directed by Brett Harston. Devlin's Daily returns to The Stand after its extremely successful inaugural outing in 2006
