Sandra says bollocks to male rule

Life is sweet for Sandra Johnston. The 31-year-old from Wellhouse is giving the men a run for their laughs in the chiefly male-conquered world of


The Stand's resident weekend comperes may well be female. and more chicks flock to comedy gigs than men. but when it comes to the onstage line-ups, women are stand-up‘s

shrinking violets.

A performer for over two years, a member

of the nurturing Stand Up Scotland

festival show in 2001, and a finalist in

the Wilkinson Sword Cutting Edge Comedy Competition last year (she lost out to bizarre country bumpkin

Dylan), Johnston is steadily carving a

cosy niche for herself in Scottish comedy.

The occupational therapist day job

provides her with plenty of feisty feminist observations. covering everything from self-help books to faddy diets. This is one female fast

becoming more deadly than the males.
