Scotch Broth productions served up something special with their adult panto Aladdin which had double and treble entendres galore.

If the rapturous reception from the audience at Lounge bar/restaurant was anything to go by, it was another hit show after last year's 'Cinderella' left the audience in hysterics.

Turning the popular tale on its head with a cast of gruesome heroes, as well as the villains, it was an action packed show with gags aplenty.

With bawdy humour and coarse language by the bucketful, it certainly wasn't for the easily offended, and was a true triumph for the Scottish vernacular - imagine it as a combination of BBC soap opera River City and 90s comedy 'Bottom', and you'd be somewhere in between!

As Aladdin, played by Kieran Begley, takes to the stage, described as looking like 'one of George Michael's backing dancers', readying himself for the VIP visit to Portaloo Road of Princess Jasmine (Angie Moir), the girl of his dreams. She was the queen of the 'neds' no less, sporting a fabulous fake tan, twiddling the bubble gum out of her mouth, and with about as much enthusiasm for life as a burst balloon! Upon being trapped in a dungeon forever, she let out a sigh of relief that she had TOWIE on Sky Plus record for the whole series!

It was brilliant deadpan performance from Angie, as Aladdin wanted his dreams to come true thanks to a famous lamp. The genie was 'Wee Jeannie', played by Kirsty Campbell, who set the tone for the show with the opening song Portaloo - sung to Abba's 'Waterloo'! and narrated sections of the play in rhyme.

Throw into the mix, - the evil Rab O'Nazar (Ruairidh Forde) as the villain of the piece, who described himself as a 'mad mental' basketcase (or a words to that effect!), and Aladdin's mum - Window Manky (Ryan Moir) - and you have a magical mix of great humour and laughs by the barrel-load.

Both Ruairidh and Ryan put in towering performances for two young men who were also the writers behind the production. Technical support was provided by Stuart and Ann Margaret McKinnon There was a superb songlist too included 'Fly Me to Dunoon' on the magic carpet, complete with a hilarious on board air stewardess service and tannoy!

There is no doubting the great talent, witty script, and laugh out loud humour on offer from Messrs Moir and Forde, and one can only hope, there is much more to come. It is seriously funny, and good enough to go to the Edinburgh Festival.

There are still tickets available for their last performance of the show at The Albany in Greenock -
