    Gary McNair

    Winner of the Scottish Arts Club Award.

    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.
