Doric humour in songs and sketches. Recorded during their farewell tour, here is an excellent reminder on DVD of this popular Scottish trio from the North East.

Scotland The What? Were a trio of Aberdonians - Stephen Robertson, William 'Buff' Hardie and George Donald - who entertained Aberdeen and Scotland with their range of comedy sketches and funny songs.

Although the sketch is included, this video (by CerebralDump on YouTube) is not from this DVD.

They met whilst studying at Aberdeen University through the production of student shows, and they started Scotland The What? For the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where it was an immediate success.

Greatness was thrust upon the trio. Now they are described as a national institution. Buff, Steve and George toured the country with great success, delighting audiences with their unique style of comedy. Gales of laughter greeted the hilarious sketches and witty songs they wrote about Scotland and the Scots.

Although at the height of their popularity they decided to call it a day and quit the theatrical circuit in order to spend more time in other pursuits, one last tour was arranged so that they could say farewell to their many fans by re-visiting the venues (large and small) where they had appeared over the years.

Their last goodbye was a four-week season on their home ground in Aberdeen, at His Majesty's Theatre. If you saw the show, this will be a suitable souvenir. If you were unlucky and couldn't get a ticket for this memorable occasion, this DVD will be the next best thing.

The group were recently given the Freedom Of The City Of Aberdeen.
