I’m looking forward to gigging alongside one of the finest stalwarts of the Scottish scene – singer, writer, patter-merchant and activist, Dick Gaughan

I was thinking about The Future
And how things might be

I drew this wee cartoon some 35-40 years ago,

for a kid’s educational series

It was originally in black and white only,

but I rediscovered it recently and decided to colour it

Over the years, I’ve done quite a few prison gigs, including running prisoner’s comedy classes, and various concerts in chapels and dining halls

In a strange way, they were some of the most rewarding and enjoyable gigs I’ve ever done

Firstly, the audience is sober and unstoned

Or, allegedly so – ?

Secondly, these guys don’t laugh unless they want to, and there’s quite a bit of pressure to look hard, be tough, and don’t laugh

So, not an easy crowd

But when they do relax, and have a laugh, it’s an amazingly receptive crowd of guys, who could fair do with a laugh – anyone who seriously believes that life in jail is cushy and easy is a fukken eejit – and a fukken eejit who has never been inside

This documents a gig compered and organised by Alan Anderson, with myself and Scott Agnew doing the funnies
