Jokes were on teen Ross; ROSS 'TEDDY' CRAIG.

FRESH-FACED Ross has been treading the boards of the comedy circuit since he was 18.

Now 31, he's completed a two-year stint working with The Comedy Unit TV firm and is forging a successful solo career as a stand-up comic and scriptwriter.

His career got off to a flying start last September when the Dunfermline comic was runner-up in the Scottish Comedian of the Year awards.

Ross started out in the business when a fellow student at Edinburgh Uni handed him a flyer for The Stand Comedy Club.

He signed up for comedy workshops and was soon doing his first gig there, mainly taking the mickey out of himself.

Ross said: "I just kept going after that. Let's face it, if you were bad, you'd be stopped."

Ross is a regular on the comedy circuit and often appears on TV and radio. He has been a gag writer on shows such as Mock The Week and Only An Excuse.
