For many Rab Florence and Ian Connell are the unsung heroes of Scottish comedy.
If you are looking for some great sketch comedy with a Scottish sensibility then you’ll want to get yourself a ticket.
Thankfully all the sketches are new, rather than just a best-of from the three seasons of the TV show. Some fan favourites are joined by a host of new characters. Although not family friendly, the sketches are not as dark or outré as they have been in the past, which is fine, but if you are hoping for one of their odd sketches that sticks in your head for days, it’s not to be found in this show.
The strength of the ideas vary, so do the quality of the sketches but there is always one belter of a line in each segment making it worth the time they have committed.
The duo are joined by Caitlin Thorburn and Louise Stewart although they don’t get a lot to do they are utilised well. There s plenty of ad libbing throughout that helps cement the idea that they are having fun bringing the odd characters of Burnistoun to a live venue.
For Burnistoun fans this a must see as this might be your only chance to see these sketches. Otherwise if you are looking for some great sketch comedy with a Scottish sensibility then you’ll want to get yourself a ticket.
