    I am also from Glasgow. The jokes are way funnier if you live there.

          No subtitles = reaches fewer people. It's basic maths, really. Even the most evenly delivered Londonian english needs subtitles - and not only to cater to those with hearing disabilities, but to cater to everyone who would have trouble following the sound of the voice alone. Pair the stand up routine with subtitles and it's easier for a lot of people to follow. But then again, I'm used to subtitles, living in a country where english is not the no.1 language (but it comes in as a close 2nd).

            Comedy like music or the arts is quite subjective. Each to their own poison, eh!

                As an English Southerner I can happily say it didn't take me long to understand the Scots I worked with when I spent a week at Eurocentral 😀 My accents pretty good too.

                    It's his accent for real, or he only exaggerates it for sounding... funnier?

                            can't you do the subtitles within youtube, so that they can be disabled?

                                                    His 'thankyou' at 0:15 sounds like 'fuck you'. Nicest greeting ever.

                                                      Let's make it official.. Scottish isn't an accent but a whole new distant language, which has nothing in common with any other one spoken by humans :p

                                                        Thx for the added subs. As a non native English speaker it just makes it that bit easier to watch.

While most scots would call English their language, they only really write in English but tend to speak a mixture of English, Scots and Gaelic. Some words sound english, some sound slightly different and other words are swapped out for something else entirely. This is why no one can truly be fluent in any language as the same language evolves differently from place to place. It doesn't mean Brits can't speak English in it's purest form. It just feels wierd when we do. The same rules apply to many places in the states although most English speakers have little to no issue understanding Americans due to your movies, tv shows and music being so widespread.

I didn't hear anything funny while this boy spent his time on stage gargling and making crude sounds, like somebody doing horrible things to a cow that hadn't been milked for a long time. Is this really how Scottish people sound or does this boy have a speech impediment of some type?

You can tell, as when they speak, they have no concept of the word " volume ", and try intimidation tactics by talking AT YOU from approximately 2 inches away. ( I'm Glaswegian by the way, so you can't say I'm being anti Scottish).

Even though I'm Irish myself I was raised in Australia so I'm still not too familiar with the intricacies of the Irish or Scottish letter sound relationships, i.e. Siobhan. Stumps me every time. My favourite comedian would have t be Dave Allan RIP and Dara O'Briain. I quite like Stephen Colbert too. ps, Frankie Boyle is okay.
