Legendary tennis coach Judy Murray and her son Duncan (the other Murray brother aka Chris Forbes) are bringing their wildly popular live show to Perth Concert Hall on Saturday 14 October 2023.
Duncan and Judy's hilarious sketches have racked up over 10 million views online and provided some much-needed light relief during the pandemic. Now Duncan has convinced Judy to join him on stage. This is his Wimbledon. Hosted by Des Clarke, their autumn dates will feature surprise guests, audience Q&As, special prizes and of course, more desperate attempts by Duncan to win his mum's approval…
One of Scotland’s most unlikely comedy duos, Duncan and Judy Murray’s double act is the brainchild of writer and performer Chris Forbes - inspired by famous siblings such as Liam and Noel Gallagher who have a third “unknown” brother, and everyone who’s ever been written off as the black sheep of the family.
When Forbes first approached Judy Murray with the idea back in 2019, he was sure it would be a one off. Four years and a series of viral sketches for BBC Scotland, appearances on Comic Relief and STV’s Hogmanay Show, a total sell out Edinburgh Fringe run and even a legendary Mother’s Day special at The Kings Theatre in Glasgow later, it’s fair to say the pair have proved even more popular than the mother and ‘son’ could have imagined.
To date, Duncan’s bids to impress his mum have included roller blading, gymnastics, music and magic. Nothing’s worked so far but he’s determined to keep trying – could the audience of Perth be the ones to finally see him pull it off?
Judy Murray commented:
‘This is my idea of hell. But Duncan said he’d move out next year if I agreed to do these shows so…here we are.’
Duncan Murray says:
‘These Live shows will be THE BEST THING EVER. Way better than Wimbledon or any of that tennis nonsense. I know mum is secretly happy about it too!’
