Rab C Nesbitt - Lottery Numbers

If you are not Scottish you may need to listen carefully

Here's Rab C Nesbitt and the Lottery Numbers sketch.
One of the best loved characters in Scottish comedy, Rab C Nesbitt was brought to life by actor Gregor Fisher. His performance made the drunken, foul-mouthed and sexist Nesbitt a likeable character and in doing so created a comedy icon.

Created by Ian Pattison, Rab C first appeared on sketch show Naked Video, was given a seasonal special in 1988 which appeared on network in 1989, and was granted a series in 1990. Rab C Nesbitt eventually bowed out in 1999 after eight series. Initially produced by the BBC, Comedy Unit founder (and the producer of the programme) Colin Gilbert took Rab C Nesbitt with him in 1996 when he left BBC Scotland and the independent production company he jointly set up was responsible for series six to eight.
