Craig Hill is the compere of BBC1 Scotland's The Live Floor Show. He is gay and quite camp, which he really plays up on. He arrived on stage by running down the middle aisle and miming to Donna Summer's The Last Dance, and ended the show by doing a cockney medley of some of Madonna's hits. In the middle of the show the fire alarm went off, which we weren't sure if it was part of the show or not! (We weren't evacutated, but there were firemen in the foyer when we left she show).
He went in for audience participation, and asked a guy in the front row where he was from. When he said "Edinburgh", Craig was confused because he had an American accent, and the guy said "Edinburgh, Pennsylvania", which was hilarious. So, that was that guy having the piss taken out of him all night, as well as a couple of others in the front row! Most of it was quite harmless, and was really funny to watch.
One of my favourite bits was when he said he would tell people he wasn't as camp in real life as he was on TV, then was caught riding a bike down what he thought was an empty tunnel, towards the Falkirk wheel singing the Sound Of Music. Definitely worth seeing, but if you're not from Scotland there may be one or two jokes you don't get.
