Scottish comedy

THE Webster Memorial Theatre in Arbroath is the place to be this Saturday evening if you fancy a night of Scottish All Star comedy.

Vladimir McTavish, Stuart Mitchell and Tony Vino have a great night of live comedy lined up.

One of the most popular - and certainly most successful - of modern-day Scottish comedians, Vladimir McTavish is a stunning professional in every sense of the word.

He serves up a delightful feast of social observation and topical satire, seasoned with his caustic wit and presented via a platter of breakneck-pace patter.

A regular star of the annual ‘Best of Scottish’ comedy showcase at the Edinburgh Fringe, Vladimir has been proving his mettle as a topical comedian of rare wit and insight as the driving force behind the highly successful live current affairs comedy show, ‘A Kick Up The Tabloids’.

In 2005 his show at the Edinburgh Fringe, ‘60 Things Scotland Gave The World’ was a critically acclaimed sell-out.

Stuart Mitchell has performed across the UK and in 2010 won The Leicester Comedy Festival New Act of The Year Competition (Funhouse).

In May 2010 he became an “internet sensation” (Daily Record) after he appeared on Frank Skinner’s Opinionated TV show receiving a standing ovation by panel members Patrick Kielty, Sarah Millican and Skinner with the BBC using it as one of their highlight videos on YouTube. Tony Vino, the only half Scottish half Spanish hybrid working comic has been touring the comedy scene since early 2005. Well aware of social and political issues he mixes friendly well thought out observational humour with audience interaction and quick witted responses. A finalist in 2006 Funny Bones competition, Tony has enjoyed recognition as a comedian and comedy compere of renown. Ticket details from the box office on 01241 435 800.
