About The Francie and Josie Show

Two of Scotland’s most famous iconic Characters are treading the boards once again in this fantastic tribute show.

After two sell out tours - Liam Dolan and Johnny Mac have scoured the archives for some more classic Francie & Josie routines, songs and sketches. This brand new show is guaranteed to take you on a nostalgic trip down memory lane.

Mac and Dolan first performed their tribute to their childhood comedy heroes more than 20 years ago when they were youngsters to raise funds for a local youth theatre to take a show to the Edinburgh Festival. Their friendship continued and they both pursued a career in Variety Theatre themselves. They wrote to Rikki Fulton and Jack Milroy and received their blessing and full written permission to perform the act and the material.

“The public reaction has been unbelievable,” said an excited Mac and Dolan.

Mary Lee – Mrs Jack Milroy came to see the show and said it was “Absolutely brilliant, as close to the originals as you are ever going to get”

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Francie and Josie Show are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
