Now their third year in Dunedin, Otago has become a home from home for Bruce Fummey and Vladimir McTavish. After selling out shows in 2015 and 2016, they return with new jokes, stories, and tales from a Scottish perspective. Those who have been to the two previous shows will know that this is, without doubt, The Best of Scottish Comedy. If you haven't been to one of the previous shows, then this is the chance to sample the observations of two of Scotland's top acts. Winners and nominees for awards at Perth Fringe in Australia, Edinburgh Fringe in Scotland, Vlad and Bruce were named Best Headliner and Scottish Comedian of the Year respectively in their home country. In 2014 Vladimir McTavish was nominated for best headline act at the Scottish Comedy Awards. The next year, his show Aye Right? How No? won Best Fringe Show, following the previous year’s critical and box-office success Look At The State Of Scotland. He appeared on The Rory Bremner Review on BBC2 and at comedy festivals in Singapore, New York and Aspen, Colorado. TV appearances include Frankie Boyle’s Tramadol Nights on Channel 4, BBC Scotland's Gary Tank Commander, Scots Squad and BAFTA-nominated Live Floor Show. Bruce Fummey won the UK speaker of the Year in 2000, and was named Scottish Comedian of the Year in 2014. He has performed in many countries over most continents, including entertaining for the British ambassadors in Rome and Jordan. Two of his Edinburgh Fringe shows and one of his Perth WA Fringe shows have been nominated for comedy awards. He has numerous radio and TV credits in Scotland and is in demand as a club performer and corporate entertainer. Both Vlad and Bruce have performed sell out shows at Edinburgh and Perth WA Fringe festivals, as well as previous sell out runs in Dunedin.
