UN­CLES UK Tour 2017

The Oban Times - - Leisure -

Robert Florence and Iain Con­nell, cre­ators of hit BBC sketch show Bur­nistoun, are tak­ing their hi­lar­i­ous new live show Un­cles on their first Scot­tish tour. Th­ese un­cles de­liver big laughs and foul-mouthed guid­ance, as they know all the an­swers to ev­ery­thing.

Af­ter a suc­cess­ful show­ing at the Glas­gow In­ter­na­tional Com­edy Fes­ti­val in 2016, the pair are tak­ing Un­cles out on the road for lim­ited dates around Scot­land in from March 2017.

Con­nell and Florence have writ­ten and starred in three se­ries of their 2016 RTS Scot­land award-win­ning, hit BBC sketch show Bur­nistoun plus two TV spe­cials Bur­nistoun’s Big Night, which aired last au­tumn on BBC One/ BBC Scot­land and Bur­nistoun Goes To Work, which was trans­mit­ted on Wed­nes­day De­cem­ber 28 on BBC One Scot­land. Bring­ing back the old char­ac­ters, plus some new, they deal with the idea of gain­ful, and not so gain­ful, em­ploy­ment.

Also, last year, Bur­nistoun Live And For Real, sold out at the King’s Theatre’s – nearly 2,000 seats – for Glas­gow Com­edy Fes­ti­val, in less than 60 min­utes and then went on to sell out three nights at the Theatre Royal in the sum­mer. Bur­nistoun also re­cently en­joyed a to­tal sell- out and highly ac­claimed de­but run at the Ed­in­burgh Fringe Fes­ti­val.

Among the re­views were: ‘Th­ese wag­gish rogues seem fa­mil­iar, the kind you might see in the cor­ner of any pub re­flect­ing on their glory days and mid­dle-aged ir­ri­ta­tions ... con­stant laughs’ – Chor­tle.

‘The part­ner­ship of Iain Con­nell and Robert Florence is one of the gifts from the com­edy cos­mos’ – The Herald.
