Some Edinburgh Festival magic last night.
Way back in the mists of the 90s there were 3 chaps called the Doug Anthony All Stars who did obscure, filthy, musical comedy. The main guy is back this year with Paul McDermott, Cameron Bruce and Mick Moriarty are GUD. They are charming and funny. They viciously slated Aberdeen. Go see them if you get a spare night.
