Join beloved Scottish actors Alan Cumming (Goldeneye, The Good Wife) and Forbes Mason (The Crown, Eastenders) at Aye Write this August for an entertaining meander down memory close.
It’s been 40 years since Alan and Forbes debuted their iconic characters Victor MacIlvaney and Barry McLeish at the Edinburgh Fringe, with the act becoming both a fixture on the Scottish comedy scene for over a decade and inspiration for characters on BBC sitcom The High Life.
In their hilarious and nostalgic new book Victor and Barry’s ‘Kelvinside Compendium: A Meander Down Memory Close’ Alan and Forbes reminisce on Victor and Barry, sharing their memories alongside classic scripts, interviews, memorabilia and materials and fond memories from celebrity fans and collaborators.
“Victor and Barry have had such a huge effect on both our lives. What we learned as writers and performers has influenced and stayed with us all through our careers, so looking back and celebrating the incredible experiences and the huge amount of laughs Victor and Barry gave us and our audiences has been a joy and we can’t wait to share it with everyone.” (Alan Cumming and Forbes Masson)
