Grant Stott: Tales From Behind The Mic, Review
Gilded Balloon, Teviot | Aug 5-29 | 17:45 | £ 12.00 / 10.00
Grant Stott has always been someone I've looked up to in radio and I've been a fan of the stage shows he has been in especially Kiss Me Honey Honey and Canned Laughter where he starred alongside Scottish legends Andy Gray (Kiss Me Honey Honey) and Allan Stewart (Canned Laughter) so doing a solo show came as something as a surprise to me.
Playing in The Dining Room at The Gilded Balloon during the Edinburgh Fringe you are treated to one hour of brilliant storytelling as Grant regales the audience with stories from his days in the Police, Radio and other things from his life.
It is a well put together, well crafted show and is very funny indeed and even more so when you remember some of the things Grant talks about such as Coasters/Outer Limits and Father Andy on The Open Line and some of the stories from his life in radio are extremely funny indeed.
All in all a great hour which flew past too quickly and had the audience laughing very loudly it is well worth the ticket price.
Grant Stott Tales FromBehind The Mic gets five stars from me the big man tells a guid tale.
