Episode 3: Limmy's Homemade Show

Summary

Rough-and-ready self-made comedy show featuring Scottish comedian Limmy, aka Brian Limond. Limmy feels guilty about accidentally leaving his phone's stopwatch running and has a lifesaving idea that Scotland can give to the world. He is also unhappy about the placement of the letter Q in the alphabet

Review

While there are dribbles of disquiet running through much of Limmy’s humour, his brand of psychological comedy is fascinating. In the final part of his “one-man band” of a series, Limmy is troubled by the position in the alphabet of the letter Q, and admits he likes reading the safety notices on trains.

There are “mainstream” laughs, too: societal pressures to stay a certain shape (“Hoos aboot we aw just get fat?”); recommending a favourite film to a friend, only for them to hate it; and football spectators seeing themselves on the jumbotron and not quite reacting in time. Broad or niche, he’s hilarious… If you have a tendency to overthink things, you’ll love Limmy.
