Des McLean's A to Z of Scotland

I am working with comedian Des McLean, promoting his brand new show for 2014 Des McLean's A to Z of Scotland

This year the spotlight falls on Scotland for a year of major sporting and historic events, not to mention the small matter of deciding on independence!

To the backdrop of The Commonwealth Games, Ryder Cup, Year of Homecoming and the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn, Des will be celebrating the most favourite past time of Scots – laughing at themselves!

Des McLean’s A to Z of Scotland is a brand new live show that works its way through the alphabet, picking a unique and iconic piece of Scottish-ness to laugh at for each letter, from Braveheart to Whisky to Golf and various degrees of Bawbaggery!

A nationwide tour of Scotland will run throughout the year and I will be working a DVD that will feature recordings of the live shows and a series of brand new sketches.

Des McLean has just finished playing the lead role in Ian Pattison’s play ‘I-Tommy’. Des starred as Tommy Sheridan, winning rave reviews from critics and audiences. In demand as ever as a Stand-up comedian Des recently played Canada, New Zealand and Las Vegas, along with some of Scotland’s biggest venues.

Of his new show Des says “The A to Z of Scotland will provide some much needed humour into what will be a massive year for Scotland and whilst the ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ camps fight it out I will be reminding Scots that whatever the politics our identity and fun is like no other place on earth”. The show has been a long time in the planning and Des promises some very big surprises.

Here is one of the sketches that have been filmed for the tour. This represents the letter T for Taggart, featuring actor Colin McCredie who can't escape the infamous catchphrae from the long running TV Police drama.
