Phil Kay: In Tweed

Phil Kay: In Tweed

Gilded Balloon

The musings of an eccentric, mad and somewhat offensive Scotsman. Screaming through stories and personal anecdotes, Kay delivers fast paced comedy of a ramshackle character; constantly deviating from his tales onto even funnier tangents, Kay isn’t afraid to show off his abundance of material. Displaying enough energy to fuel the whole festival, he really comes alive for the audience, bounding about the stage and using any of the available props around him to his advantage. Featuring reminiscences of numerous run-ins with the law where his cheeky wit almost pushes his luck, this isn’t well structured comedic writing, but an oral account of the everyday life of a genuinely funny man.
