Fantastic show. Had me crying with laughter. Can't understand why this young man doesn't have sell out tours all over. One of the best I've seen.

Hour of Scotland was certainly an hour well spent! A rollercoaster of a show laughing at (mostly!) ourselves with a fair chunk of historical references thrown in - and a brilliant Burns parody at the end for good measure. Thoroughly enjoyed it all!
