Still Game

The team behind hit Scottish comedy Still Game have announced a new run of live shows.

Ford Kiernan, Greg Hemphill and the rest of the cast will return to the stage at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow in February for a 10-date run of their new live show Still Game: Live 2.

Tickets will go on sale on Friday October 7, when the BBC Scotland comedy returns to the small screen for its first series in nine years.

Demand for the new Hydro shows is expected to be high, after the first live dates in 2014 sold out for 21 nights and entertained more than 210,000 fans.

The show follows the antics of pensioners Jack Jarvis and Victor McDade in their home in Osprey Heights, a tower block in the fictional Craiglang area of Glasgow.

The new six-part series was filmed over the summer at a purpose-built set in BBC Scotland's Dumbarton studios.

The comedy grew as a spin-off from Hemphill and Kiernan's Chewin' The Fat sketch show and ran for six series between 2002 and 2007.
