Alan Anderson is passionate about whiskey. He wanted to call his show Whisky for Dummies but got sued by the publishers of self-same books. Nonetheless he persisted with a slight name change but the premise is the same. You get to sample some fine malty, peaty beverages whilst Alan fills you in on the history, methodology and lore of this great drink. It’s a hilarious hour of educational drinking. Wine tasting is fir poofters.
This is the real (15 year old single malt cask aged) Mcoy.
‘Mercifully, Anderson isn’t just some Scotsman who wants to get drunk with you, he’s a passionate whisky enthusiast who absolutely needs his audience to learn about the magical amber liquid’.**** Adelaide Advertiser.

“Alan Anderson provided an hilarious Toast to the Lassies”

Aberdeen FC boss Craig Brown turned his hand to stand up comedy at a Kidney Research fundraiser organised by Kenny Dooley.
Last year Kenny donated one of his kidneys for transplant. This year he aims to raise over £100,000 for Kidney Research. So far, with the help of people such as the former Scotland fitba boss and Radio 2’s Chris Evans he has raised over £34,000.
In May 2012 Kenny aims to cycle non stop from London to Paris
