Scottish comedian Iain Stirling launches the new BBC Scotland channel in spectacular style, bringing together the best of Scottish talent for a night of comedy entertainment fit for a nation!
The first of this two-part programme features incredible performances from BAFTA award-winning Elaine C Smith, Brit Award nominee Lewis Capaldi and Scotland’s favourite wrestler Grado – all in front of a raucous live audience at Glasgow’s Theatre Royal.
Comedy legend Grado hosts three teams of contestants driving to a new mystery destination, guided by a talking sat-nav asking them questions along the journey. Answer correctly and they follow the shortest route, but a wrong answer means a wrong turn, a diversion and added miles to their trip. It is the team with the lowest mileage that wins the cash prize so they want to keep to the straightest road possible.
In Gary Goes to Hollywood, Gary McLintoch, Tank Commander, proud Scot, showbiz personality and now documentary film-maker, is off to Hollywood to meet the Scots who have left Scotland behind for the bright lights of Los Angeles. He’s determined to find out why they have moved away from home and what they feel about the country they left behind.
Gary meets a host of fellow Scots who have relocated to seek fame and fortune in LA. He explores the ups and downs of life in Tinseltown, what these people love about their new home, what they miss about Scotland and what sacrifices they have made to create a life in America. Gary meets with Guardians of the Galaxy and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’s Karen Gillan and quizzes her about the movies, fame and leaving Scotland. He chats to Aberdonian magician Stuart MacLeod, one half of the successful magical duo Barry and Stuart, strikes poses with Invershnekie’s yoga practitioner Mark Guibarelli, and hangs out at home with Ross King.
