Friday night at the Glasgow Empire has been the subject of anecdotes from several comedians in times past, recording their memories of terrifying experiences performing at this famous home of variety. It was, it seems, a notoriously difficult audience to please. What did they make of Hansel and Gretel? At least the singers seem to have recovered from the experience in time for Tuesday’s show in Dundee.
