Scottish Comedy Awards 2018 nominations

The nominations for the Scottish Comedy Awards 2018 have been announced. Various stand-up comedians, TV shows and radio programmes are shortlisted.

British Comedy Guide, 7th March 2018

The gang leave home for a real-time episode focused entirely on Beth's birthday meal: nothing fancy, it's just a pub that does two courses for £7.95, but the gatecrashing of the event by Christine (insensitive) and Colin (hammered) ensures it's a gentle fiasco. Basic but reliably decent sitcom fare.

Jack Seale, The Guardian, 19th February 2018

It is the juxtaposition of coarse and gentle that wins the day in this Scottish comedy. Following a routine but invasive examination, Eric is lying prone on the sofa in considerable discomfort. Cue a procession of well-wishers who aim to lift his spirits, but inevitably miss the target.
