Robert Florence and Iain Connell are critically acclaimed writer-performers most well known for their Scottish BAFTA nominated sketch show BURNISTOUN which has enjoyed three successful series and one 45 minute special, BURNISTOUN’S BIG NIGHT, for BBC Scotland.

So popular is the show that earlier this year Robert & Iain curated BURNISTOUN LIVE AND FOR REAL at Kings Theatre as part of The Glasgow Comedy Festival, tickets for the 1500 seat venue sold out within 1 hour. They revived the live show in August for three nights only at Theatre Royal Bath where they also proceeded to sell out.

Clips from BURNISTOUN’S BIG NIGHT can be found here on their YouTube channel, a couple of our favourite sketches are below:
