Aye Right? How No? – The Comedy Countdown To The Referendum With Vladimir McTavish & Keir McAllister (Vladimir McTavish & Keir McAllister)

By | Published on Wednesday 20 August 2014

McTavish and McAllister were ahead of the game by doing a comedy show about the referendum in 2012. This year, now that more people are talking (and joking!) about it all, they’re back with this updated version, condensed to allow room for special guests (Rory Bremner with some good stuff tonight). And good for them – a mature democracy should be able to laugh at whatever aspects of itself seem, well, funny. It needn’t be a mature laugh, mind: leaving aside the question of whether fat jokes are acceptable in general, why shouldn’t they be about the First Minister? I should probably add for balance that the No campaign gets a considerably firmer attack but, most importantly, it’s mostly funny.

Assembly Rooms, until 24 Aug.
