Big Rory

Big RoryFrom Scotland

"Don't believe a word you've heard about Big Rory and the team - they are much better! The most professional, hilarious, wonderful act we have ever had. Loved by everyone, they brought the town to a standstill . . ." Greystones Festival, Eire 2003

Meet Big Rory, the nine-foot Scots giant with ‘power presence’ and bagpipes who, for over twenty years, has been harassing and delighting literally millions of people around the world with his oversized antics. This March he'll be patrolling the perimeter of the Games, making sure everything is out of control. Catch him out for a walk with Ochie, his wayward mongrel. Inevitably there is total confusion as amorous Ochie careers around, peeing on lampposts, with Rory in hot pursuit trying to contain the chaos. Or perhaps Rory will be strolling with his ladylove, Gorgeous Morag, a 9'2" sex bomb in stilettos heels.
