Click here and go to 16 minutes to see Kevin Bridges on Jonathan Ross last night.
“That’s what happens in Scotland. We wake up, we deep fry something, put on our kilt, spend all day hating the English, we inject some heroin and then we die”
On the referendum
“We’ll have our own six prong Scottish plug”
“I’d like to see a four year return clause in case we make an arse of it”
He’s got a boat on Loch Lomond too.
Very funny and natural comedian…..

As readers will know, I hardly watch any telly.
I don’t much care for the mainstream TV ouput. I particularly detest reality TV, charithons, celebrity twaddle, awards ceremonies and most sitcoms.
Reading this article from the Independent which starts with a photo of Russell Brand and very quickly mentions Ricky Gervais, made me doubly glad that I didn’t catch any of Friday’s unfunny, trite, tired national conscience salving day on screen.
When I rule the country, Brand, Gervais et all will languish in jail and the no doubt worthy beneficiaries of Red Nose Day/Comic Relief will be funded through the taxation system.

A classic wee routine from Kevin Bridges.
I was a DJ in Drumchapel.
It was mental!

Yes the function suite at Strathclyde Homes Stadium was rockin’ (geddit?) with it last night. Compère Charlie Ross along with stand up comics David Connor, Chris Conroy and Tommy Reid were excellent/hilarious but a wee special mention goes to Stu Who? who was headlining and therefore had to deal with the audience at its drunkest.
Stu last night.
To keep 300 or so inebriated folks’ attention isn’t easy, but to make them laugh and keep them laughing via some great stand up routines interlaced with social comment here and there and then get an ovation, takes extraordinary talent.
Stu hasn’t been suffering the best of health in recent times but you wouldn’t know it from his performance last night.
It was a great night and good to see a lot of old friends there.

Phil Differ and Patrick Rolink
My friend Patrick Rolink has been in touch to say about his show with Phil Differ at the Tron Theatre Glasgow, tomorrow (Thursday 24th) and this Friday night entitled Patter Merchant City.
On Thursday 24 March, Phil Differ and Patrick will be joined by politician, author, broadcaster, Celebrity Big Brother contestant and former MP for Glasgow George Galloway and Scottish film and television actor and director David Hayman, best known for his role as DCS Mike Walker in ITV drama Trial and Retribution and stand up comic and broadcaster, Des McLean.
Appearing on Friday 25 March will be Scottish actress Libby McArthur, best known for her appearances in River City and Taggart, George Galloway and SAHB drummer Ted McKenna
They are late shows, starting at 10pm and admission is a mere £10. I think both nights sound great and if all goes according to plan I might get along to the Thursday show. Click Here to book tickets.

They first met back in Glengrotty in the days when men were mean and wimmen were weary.
They were destined for grotty things.
And so it proved to be.
Years later, they decided to rip off old classic pop tunes by adding their own peurile, Glenrothian lyrics and the rest is hysterical.
Aye, that’s right – it’s just Tam and Tam pissing about.
The usual warning to put down any food items and hot drinks before listening. Choking hazard!
What if God was wan o us?
Bald, fifty and fat
