A comedy kick in the pants for the personalities that define our nation and our parliament. Larger than life satire - a fast-paced topical comedy that is part audio-strip cartoon, part barbed satire, part impressionist free-for-all.

'Hooray For Holyrood!!' provides a well warranted antidote to the self-obsessed, over-spending, media-fixated antics of the nation's high heid yins.

In this first episode First Minister, Alex Salmond, prepares for the new session of parliament along with his trusty aide, Hamish. Catching up on the events of the summer, they uncover a nasty problem for Alex when he finds he has an online troll. Who could it be? As they consider his friends and enemies they find there are more than enough suspects to grapple with. Can they uncover the culprit?

As Alex and Hamish investigate they encounter everything from ineptitude to downright idiocy as their journey takes them from the Labour Party HQ to Balamory. Along the way they meet, amongst others, Duncan Bannatyne, Sean Connery and the delightful Kirsty Young. A madcap chase through Scotland's cultural and political landscape.
