ED2012 Comedy Review: Vladimir McTavish And Keir McAllister Look At The State Of Scotland (Vladimir McTavish / Keir McAllister / The Stand Comedy Club)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Focusing on what modern Scotland represents, this show is a quick witted to and fro between two of Scotland’s best acts on the comedy circuit. Switching from political satire to cheap shots faster than Chris Hoy round a velodrome, the pair discussed the positives, the negatives and the journey towards Scottish Independence. However, because the show focuses so much on modern Scottish issues, some of the content may sweep over the heads of those of you who are not year round residents. The fast tempo can also result in a slight loss of direction, and might engender a sense of the show having stopped, rather than finished. Still, it offers an insightful comedic look into the Scottish psyche, with all the highlander stuff removed, and lots of laughs added.

The Stand Comedy Club, 5-25 (not 13) Aug, 7.00pm.
