We catch up with the hilarious Glasgow comedian, Scott Agnew, who, after snapping his banjo string, embarks on a new show.

KaleidoScot: I’ve Snapped My Banjo String… Let’s Just Talk? Yes, let’s! Tell us more…

Scott: It seems like you’re wanting the show for nothing Kaleidoscot. But very briefly I was forced to rely on my mouth for a period last year after the organ that gives me most pleasure… malfunctioned – shall we say.

KaleidoScot: Ohhh! You promise salacious and scandalous tales, go on and let us in on a few…

Scott: Again – you’re so very impatient – aren’t you already on the Press guestlist? Well we all have these tales of ending up looking like an arsehole when one is in pursuit of it. I suppose the show is a reflection on high level baw-baggery, weapons grade bell-endery and accomplished arseholery whilst I was rather proficient in the poofery. It was originally part of a work in progress show that never made it to the fringe because – frankly I couldn’t be chuffed but now it has added yarns after flat sharing with Dame Nancy Clench.

KaleidoScot:Right! So when and where is it all happening? 

Scott: Rather appropriately it’s at the scene of crime – The Riding Rooms. If not the scene of the actual crime certainly the starting point anyway. This Saturday – 8pm

KaleidoScot: Exciting! Anything else?

Scott: Just don’t expect me to finish the show playing the them tune to Deliverance or strumming anything for that matter. It shall merely be an oral workout… for an hour.

KaleidoScot: Erhmm! Where do we get our hands on tickets? 

SA: On the door or from​
