The three actors are quite likeable, quirky and appear to be enjoying themselves. However it was not the show for me. The humour is very lame, slow and childish. The classification is aged 8+, and that perhaps reflects the age group targeted, if you are under twelve you should be fine. I can't complete a full review, due to leaving after 30 minutes, other did also.

What a great show! Funny, silly, unpredictable and original. We laughed all the way through. A lovely way to spend an hour in the afternoon. We also really appreciated the performers greeting us all outside, after the show as well. Highly recommended

Anybody who doesn't enjoy this should not bother going to the Festival.
This show has everything that 'theatre' is all about. To say it's for children is like saying Charlie Chaplin was a kids entertainer !! It's an endearing view of Scotland seen through the mist of mime, song and visual comedy.
Be warned, it is a very quick hour !

Exquisite physical comedy, expressive storytelling, compassionate inclusion of audience members. Like a contemporary Three Stooges where Moe, Larry and Curley actually care about one another. No mean-spiritedness here. I actually felt a connection with these guys by the end of the show.

What a “hoot” (said in a Scots accent, brandishing The saltier and swigging a dram of whiskey) This is everything Scotland and the audience are in 3 pairs of safe hands
Go and enjoy

An amazing performance, witty, humorous, captivating and great fun! A talented, vivacious trio who displayed such exuberance. Thanks for a brilliantly entertaining show guys.

This is a fantastic example of clowning from some very talented artists. Witty, original and totally surreal it’s not going to be everyone’s cup of tea. But if you like to sit back and enjoy totally ridiculous things occur and just have a good time for an hour then get along and see this show!

I appreciate the effort put in by these guys but it is definitely not for adults, it is much more suited to kids, maybe under 12’s

OHHHHHHHHHHH I loved this show. It was hilarious!! The three guys have skills that are way beyond just acting per se. The energy of it all was infectious and I could watch it over and over. If you want run of the mill, boring and unfunny, then avoid this like the plague, otherwise go along, because it's new, fresh, different and makes you laugh out loud! These guys are terrific.

I took my mum (67) to this show and we both loved it - one of those where you're in pain from laughing so much! Have already booked tickets to go back with my kids. I really don't understand the negative review I've just read. If you're willing to go with this show, it's such fun. Each of the three performers are amazingly talented and bring something different to it all. When we were there (Saturday) everyone around us was having a great time.

To be honest, the previous review is very mean-spirited. Fair enough if something's not your cup of tea, but there's an unpleasant edge to those comments, and it certainly doesn't represent our experience in any way.

First time I've ever left a Fringe review, and delighted to do it for one of the most fun things I've ever seen at the festival - delighted I've got children to give me an excuse to go again!

This was a most disappointing and embarrassing show on so many levels and the first one we have walked out of halfway through ... quite a few people left. This show is like a CBBC farce which has been rejected at the first hurdle. If you want to take some five year olds along to a show to be entertained for half an hour then this is the one for you. Definitely not worth the money and not for adults.

Throughout the world Scotland is known as a nation of tartan-clad drunks. Scots – the stereotypes say – spend their days raging against the English, belting Auld Lang Syne while hunting wild Haggis. In this jo...
