Vladimir McTavish – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2002

Review by Steve Bennett

This character's never going to smash any stereotypes, but McTavish is a lively and entertaining act who frequently hits the comedy nail squarely on the head.

Though often harsh in delivery and content, the full-on style demands, and gets, attention.

McTavish has his fair share of strong material, such as the tales of drunken Glaswegian winos, but the set is not without its duds, and sometimes the subject matter is far from innovative - tales of Amsterdam coffee houses and prostitutes, for example, are dullingly familiar.

But even with well-established themes, such as Ian Paisley's aggressive tone of voice, McTavish is often able to find his own laughs.
