Absolutely is a sketch show featuring a range of weird and wonderful characters performed by a range of talented performers.

Most of the cast are Scottish, with Moray Hunter, Jack Docherty, Peter Baikie and Gordon Kennedy. The cast also includes John Sparkes from Wales and Morwenna Banks from Cornwall.

Amongst the characters in the show include the overambitious Stoneybridge Town Council; life explained by The Little Girl; Calum Gilhooley, the most boring man in the world; the always sensible Nice Family; rude geriatric Bert Bastard; the surreal George McDiarmid and Donald McDiarmid (no relation); sketches on the lavatory with Frank Hovis; anglophobic Scottish nationalist playwright MacGlashan; and Welsh DIY lovers Denzil and Gwynedd.
