A spokesman for BBC Scotland said: “Punctuated by techno versions of familiar ditties, Limmy’s Homemade Show features scenes and musings which often seem to be rooted in the mundane – until the funnyman adds his own particular twists.

“Limmy opens the door to a tradesman who gets more than he bargained for and to a group of young men whose dabblings in the spirit world prove unsettling.

“There’s also the appearance of a mysterious individual during a routine piece of filming at home.

“A visit to the museum prompts a vision of the future and while meandering by the river, Limmy attempts an academic explanation of how comedy works to a tough audience.

“Meanwhile a walk in the park which he takes to improve his health goes down a strange route after he recalls a previous encounter with a litterbug.”
