An evocative sonic journey to outer space...

Kai Fischer, in association with National Theatre of Scotland...

Donald Robertson Is Not A Stand Up Comedian!

A coming of age story which looks at comedy in an entirely different light.

What would you do if everyone in the world hated you? Would you run? Would you fight? Or would you try to make them laugh?

Donald Robertson has got no mates and he isn't funny. But with guidance from his new mentor Gary, he hopes that this is all about to change.

Writer/performer Gary McNair’s acclaimed monologue weaves a classic coming-of-age story with a pinpoint deconstruction of the darker side of stand-up comedy.
