Tickling Jock celebrates Scotland’s masters of mirth and our truly distinctive contribution to the world of entertainment in the twentieth century. We turn the spotlight on performers who have generated laughter at home and abroad – a list of comedy greats that runs from variety stars of the music hall, stage, gramophone and radio to comedians and actors who have made audiences fall about with laughter on the big and small screens. With legends such as Rikki Fulton, Jack Milroy Sir Stanley Baxter and Una Mclean rubbing shoulders with Ivor Cutler, Ronnie Corbett, Lulu, and of course Billy Connolly. Enter our ‘On Air’ booths to listen and watch comedy clips and become a Tickling Jock yourself by leaving your own recording of a comedy performance.
