"The Scottish comedy circuit has formed a new trade body to try to secure a financial lifeline to save the industry as it stands on the brink of collapse.

The newly-formed Association of Scottish Comedic Arts (ASCA) is demanding urgent talks with Creative Scotland, urging the funding body to finally officially recognise comedy as an art form, so unlocking access to the cash."
