Re: Edinburgh Fringe

Just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who came to 'Mr. November'. I had an amazing time this Festival, far surpassing any expectations I had. 

I was lucky to get to play to full rooms every day and have some nice things written about me. When you combine this with the sheer amount of chips I was eating each day it really adds up to a pleasant experience. 

 

"McPherson is a highly engaging storyteller and, like any good comic, it very much feels like it’s only you in the room with him. What sets McPherson apart as a performer is there’s yet to be anyone else to explore the pain that comes with being a ‘millenial’ with quite so much accuracy and intimacy.​"

Scot Squad Series 5

Scot Squad is back tomorrow night on the new BBC Scotland channel! I reprise my role as online investigator Archie Pepper. It's a really fun show to be a part of and you can see below that between the last series and now we won a BAFTA. I am the one standing at the side looking kinda awkward like that photo of Ashley Cole when he played for Roma.
