A What the F**kirk spokesbloke stated: “Alan’s eaten numerous bar lunches in Behind the Wall. He’s searched in the archives at Callendar House for ancient scribbles by Shire fans. He’s interviewed drunken punters in the queue for City, asking – what does it mean to come from Falkirk? What does it mean to come from anywhere?

“Now he’s ready to present his findings, you can join Alan and Adam on a comical, musical, magical mystery tour through the past and present of an unremarkable,

post-industrial Scottish town that’s definitely not Stirling.”

Alan’s performances as his female alter ego Moira Bell, self-proclaimed “Falkirk's Hardest Woman”, have been a big hit with audiences for over a decade and his books, including The Incredible Adam Spark, Lads and Death of a Ladies’ Man, have also proved popular with punters far and wide.
