Some of the best Scottish comedies have just been added to Netflix
Rab C. Nesbitt

But will the Americans get the jokes?

Netflix has cranked things up to ‘eleven!‘ with the addition of three iconic Scottish comedy series to its roster.

While everyone’s been banging on about US shows like Master of None and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, it’s the homegrown comedy that’s going to brighten up our December patter.

The first series of Scottish sketch shows Limmy’s Show and Burnistoun are available to stream – while series six-eight of everyone’s favourite string-vested Glaswegian Rab C. Nesbitt are also on the service.

The fact that Rab C. Nesbitt‘s rating is a lowly 1.5 stars (out of five) suggests that American audiences might struggle with the Govan lingo.

Burnistoun dweller (and WOW247 gaming columnist) Robert ‘Rab’ Florence was clearly pleased with the news:

And Limmy was just pleased to be following in One Direction’s footsteps:

What could be better than sitting your family down on Christmas Day to watch some Scottish comedy? Attempting to channel your mental powers into changing the time on the video, or shouting ‘widden pallets!‘ at the top of your voice?

Nothing could be, that’s what.

We’re happy to kick off the campaign to get Jack & Victor on your streaming devices, with some Chewin’ The Fat and Still Game to boot.

Burnistoun, Limmy’s Show & Rab C. Nesbitt are all available on Netflix now
