Around the World in 80 Puns

Glaswegian comedian and author Iain MacDonald embraces the international aspect of the festival as he takes you on a punventure around the world in this hilarious show in which he has a joke for each and every country. You tell him the country- he'll tell you the joke! And with the aid of his GIANT map and mini globes for the audience, there'll be plenty of opportunities to try and catch him out!
