‘Impressive… amusing… bargain of a night out’
Adelaide Advertiser

‘Hilarious… not just for whisky drinkers’  Glaswegian comedian Alan Anderson loves Single Malt Scotch Whisky and he wants you to love it too. Anderson is trying to dispel the stereotype of the cheap Scot by giving away high quality booze. During his show there are six whiskies to be tasted and many laughs to be had.

A former architect, DJ and tour guide, Alan Anderson has been one of the most in-demand comedians in Scotland for over a decade, with six years of sell out shows at the Glasgow Comedy Festival. Whisky Fir Dummies is his Edinburgh Fringe debut.

Whisky Fir Dummies premiered at Australia’s Adelaide Fringe Festival in February 2011. Alan Anderson performed Whisky Fir Dummies for 18 nights, receiving rave reviews and sell out audiences… probably something to do with the free whisky he hands out during the show to his favourite audience members.

There is no denying that Scotland has a drink problem. That problem is that too many Scots drink poor quality cheap alcohol such as alcopops, methadone and Buckfast. Whisky however is Scotland’s greatest export, 2010 was a record year with over £3Billion’s worth of Scotch being exported around the world. This helped HMRC rake in over £1Billion in tax. Anderson asks what whisky – compared to golf, Sean Connery or Nessie – says about the Scots, and will minimum pricing kill the golden goose?

Hae a dram, some cheeky banter and learn about Scotland’s greatest export with Glaswegian comedian Alan Anderson. Every show a new, unique whisky sodden tale.

‘delivered in boisterous and friendly manner… Anderson educates his audience… keeping them rolling with laughter…. a warm and hilarious get-together.’ Chortle

‘Excellent show. Excellent whisky. Excellent chat.’

‘There was whisky to be had. And laughs too, of which there were many. I can find no other way to describe Whisky Fir Dummies other than to say that it is the best way to have a dram of whisky in a room with strangers. ’ Adelaide Art Beat
