ED2012 Comedy Review: Alan Anderson – Whisky Fir Dummies 2.0 (Ha Ha Comedy)

ED2012 3/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

“You’re going to have to earn your whisky,” bellows Alan Anderson, our slightly terrifying guide through the past and present-day life of the spirit, to his newly disappointed audience. If you like jokes about dogging, tits and Scotland (being Scottish might help too, because then you might understand them!), you’ll love Whisky Fir Dummies 2.0. Even if you don’t, you’ll still get an incredibly well-researched show, in which Anderson turns a lot of quite dry information into a fascinating history. And don’t worry, not everyone has to earn their whisky. Unless you count forcing nervous laughter at jokes about dogging sites in Paisley, just in case Alan spots your unsmiling face and shouts something offensive about your wife’s tits.

Just The Tonic at The Tron, 2-26 Aug, (not 13, 14), 9.00pm.
