It’s the 1970s and funny men Alec, Angus and Rory are one of Scotland’s top comedy acts. And now they’re hitting the big time – top of the bill at the King's Theatre in Edinburgh – and it looks like they’re getting a TV show. This comedy trio are riding high and nothing’s going to stop them.

Fast forward to today and the three find themselves together again for the first time in decades. What happened to break the group up? Will they be able to put their past differences behind them? And why do they still care who gets the biggest laugh?

Starring Allan Stewart, Andy Gray and Grant Stott this brand new comedy written and directed by Ed Curtis (I Dreamed A Dream, Never Forget, Jolson & Co) with Allan Stewart tells a tale of friendship, ambition and regret. And of course laughter…lots and lots of laughter.
