I’ve been asked to host a Robbie Burns night

A couple of days ago, a woman emailed me asking me to host the Robbie Burns night at her Scottish pub, saying The Toronto Star would be covering the festivities and she wanted a fun host and she thought I could do my angry Scottish Mini Man accent for some of it. She asked if I had a kilt. I told her that I don’t and confided that I’m actually Jewish. She didn’t seem to mind. But she had only told me the area it was in, not the name of the pub. So I thought I’d head up to the ‘hood and see if I could find the place to check it out and have a drink. “The Piper’s Pub & Grill” sounded like a Scottish name so I peered in the window and saw… A poster with my name on it. So, I guess that means I’m hosting this thing?

 Aye, Laddie! Go “Like” them on Facebook here and come out to the night. I have a feeling I’ll need help finishing my haggis.

Here’s the poster in the window, Laddie!

Here’s me and my friend having a non-alcoholic drink while scoping out the pub and investigating the atmosphere. We were fans of the passionate musical duo in the background.

As a reminder of the Angry Scotsman the pub owner is talking about, here’s wee me acting in commercials I wrote for Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain Mini Granola Bites and Mini Cereal Bars a few wee years ago:
