Still Game returns after 7 years but now experiance the tv show as you never have before! On stage! Sold out at the Glasgow Hydro, you are in for a treat with this live stage performance from the whole gang!
Comedy sketch show set in the fictional Scottish town of Burnistoun near Glasgow. The show follows the exploits of characters such as an aspiring girl band and a serial killer who is unhappy at his portrayal in the local media.
Jack and Victor have broken out of Chewin' The Fat and now have their own six part series on BBC One Scotland. These Glaswegian patter merchants may be long in the tooth but they're Still Game for all kinds of carry-on.Written by

The clansman was filmed on location at a Glasgow Pub named 'The Gimlit' in Ruchill, Glasgow. The pub was the scene of a gangland shooting in the late 90s. The scenes had to be shot on a backlot in Maryhill in front of a replica of The Gimlit after series 4 when the owner of the pub sold it to housing developers, prompting a similar storyline. The pub is now demolished and houses have been built onsite. See more »
Still Game is a smashing comedy. Being English, a bit of Translation is necessary, but if you get past that, it's a cracking show.
Some of the laughs are obvious, some are more dry wit. It's a good comedy that improves each time you watch. Jack and Victor are solid likeable characters, who deal with the problems of being old. Aided by Winston, Tam, Isa, Navid and Bobby.
A funny harmless comedy. Take it for what it is.
I can understand why it's not everyone's cup of tea. My wife doesn't like it, but I have friends who do. It's very subjective, and I'd encourage people to give it a go. It's quite unfair of reviews to tell you to avoid a show. You should try it.
Chewin the Fat is also a favourite of mine. Funny sketches, again a bit of translation necessary.
