Aberdeen Vs Glasgow Vs The World – Final Round – Free (Ginger Ale Comedy / Free Festival)

By | Published on Friday 16 August 2013

Imagine a local raffle with prizes that range from a nice food hamper to a noose. This should give you some comprehension as to the variety on display at ‘Aberdeen vs Glasgow vs the World’. Confusing premise aside, this is basically a showcase of seven local comedians (the rest of the world was represented by Edinburgh). Think of an exclusively Scottish ‘Live at the Apollo’ and then lower your expectations. With a winningly enthusiastic host and stand-out performer in the way of Robin Grainger, this show will present you with laughs, chuckles, groans and eye-watering silences. It’s underground comedy of the most unpredictable kind, I’m just not sure the comedic diamonds were worth all the rough.

Laughing Horse @ The Newsroom, until 25 Aug, 5.00pm.
