Description

From rags to a bow tie! Celebrate Tommy's centenary with stories of Scottish social history, hard times and farting. It's what he would have wanted. Stand-up comedian Louise talks about her dad and his generation growing up in poverty between the wars, going to war, finding farting extremely funny and – in Tommy's case – getting an award at the House of Lords with his name spelt incorrectly. 'I thought your father was such a gentleman until I married him' (Tillie Rodgers).

Broadway Baby (3/5 stars) 86 days ago

If you’re one of the many people who visit the Fringe from far flung parts of the world (hello Londoners daring to go past the M25) it’s easy to forget amongst all the clamour and glamour of international artists that Edinburgh is a thriving city that’s home all year round...

The Wee Review (3/5 stars) 88 days ago

This is a pleasant, morning storytelling show – a piece of personal, family testimony that brings in aspects of social and cultural history and a little local flavour.
