Scott Gibson: Like Father, Like Son
  • West End

Award-winning comedian Scott Gibson returns with his sold-out, smash-hit Fringe show 'Like Father, Like Son'. 'Like Father, Like Son' is an honest, frank and painfully funny insight into the men who have influenced Scott's life - the good, the bad and the& indifferent. An unexpected reunion with his father - and the death of his grandfather - forced Scott to take a closer look at the men in his family, and to ask if there really is any truth in the old saying 'like father, like son'. A candid, intimate, sophomore show full of dark truths and uproarious laughter. Gibson and Richard Gadd made history at the 2016 Edinburgh Comedy Awards when they became the first Scottish winners to scoop both of the main prizes - Best Newcomer and Best Show, respectively - in the same year. "Riotously funny and at times painfully raw& an uplifting and life-affirming set" - The Herald "He delivers constant, big and hard laughs& a born raconteur who can hold your attention" - The List "You'll be left howling throughout his set& his storytelling is absolutely gorgeous. This guy has no shortage of talent [&] gut-bustingly funny" - Broadway Baby

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
