Alasdair is a legendary comedian, in that there is little historical evidence that he exists. But he does exist. Winner of Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2017, Alasdair has featured on BBC radio and performed stand-up across the UK including Glastonbury Festival, the Udderbelly Southbank and the Edinburgh Fringe. He knows quite a lot about 19th century magicians. Tourists often ask to have their photo taken with him, presumably impressed by this.
