Seasaidh Leagsaidh - a comedy masterclass
I’M BEGINNING to wonder when I will be able to stop laughing after sitting in an audience treated to the best of comedy in the Mitchell Theatre on Saturday, September 19.
Calum Mackinnon - as three different characters - had the whole audience in stitches from start to finish helped, of course, by the brilliantly funny Seonag Monk and Daibhidh Walker.
His first guise was as a nervous and completely useless master of ceremonies who tried to introduce the whole show by telling a simple joke he couldn’t remember. He eventually managed to introduce Calum MacInnes to sing and play a few country classics on guitar and piano. It was an excellent start.
The next character he played was a butler who got drunker and drunker while drinking toasts with the lady of the house, played by Seonag Monk.
After the interval, it was time for Seasaidh Leagsaidh to take the stage. This became outrageously funny. At one point, Seasaidh Lexy was supposedly having a baby, with Daibhidh Walker playing the midwife. The audience were in fits.
There was huge energy to the whole performance - the actors were clearly enjoying the humour as much as the audience.
By the end, the audience was buzzing. I think I’ll probably stop laughing halfway through next week.
