A Dozen Red Roses, Chocolates and a Teddy?
It’s less than a week to go till Valentines Day.
Over The Lyne (OTL) can hear the cynical cries of “who cares it’s all a big marketing ploy”.
Of course it is but it is also a great excuse for having a laugh at all things romantic and sexy (with a few bodily fluids thrown in for good measure).
Calling all Valentines Shaggers
Nik Coppin’s comedy show Shaggers is a perennial hit at The Edinburgh Fringe, Brighton, Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne comedy festivals. Whether you single or in a relationship it si the perfect alternative Valentines Night.
For comedy fans in Scotland, Shaggers Valentine Show is at The Glad Cafe, 1006a Pollokshaws Road, Glasgow. The headliner is award winning Scott Gibson with support from Anna Devitt, Matt Watson, Rosco McClelland and your host Jeannie Jones.

Going away for a romantic break with your lover doesn’t always go to plan as these stories of romantic valentine mishaps testify.
