Alan Anderson – Whisky Fir Dummies (hireacomedian.co.uk / Ha Ha Comedy)

By | Published on Friday 26 August 2011

“Six malt whiskies to be tasted,” says the Fringe Programme. Unfortunately, what it doesn’t mention is that only one audience member gets to taste each one. A little bit sneaky, I thought, but everyone does get one free dram at the end, which I suppose is more than the majority of Fringe shows give you. It’s also a very funny and genuinely informative show. Anderson educates his audience on the wonders of Scotland’s finest export whilst simultaneously keeping the laughs coming with some non-PC, quintessentially Scottish humour, and by mercilessly ripping the proverbial out of those in the front row. It’s a riot, and while you may not get six whiskies, you will get a lot of laughs.
