Comic theatre troupe Weegie Hink Ae That?, which includes Jack Gouther from Cumbernauld, is rapidly rising in popularity.

Jack, from Abronhill, and his pals Gregor Mckay, Conor Hardie and Elliot Hannigan are all drama students at Edinburgh Napier University.

From collaboration with TV veteran Dave Anderson to a run at the Edinburgh Fringe, things have grown quickly - and now they have teamed up with another comic group formed by fellow students to present a double bill.

Jack said: “We’re really pleased with how things are going, we didn’t expect there to be such a big appetite for our stuff. We’ve made it on to STV2 and got a 20-second clip shown on TV and we’re working with some great people to create new online videos.

“Now we’re working with another group of drama students, Glass Knuckles, for a double bill. They’ve created a play called Deep Fried whereas we do sketches but it’s all new, Glasgow-focused comedy and there’s a lot of crossover appeal between our audiences. People who like them have been checking out our stuff and vice versa.”

The double bill will be presented at Websters Theatre in Glasgow on Thursday, October 5, from 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm. Book tickets on http://www.webstersglasgow.com/events/deep-fried-ye-fae/.

Weegie Hink Ae That? also runs a Facebook group where you can check out some of the team’s short video sketches.
