The C.U. Jimmy Hat
Richard Herring reclaims a contentious object. For this Edinburgh Special, Richard is reclaiming the C.U. Jimmy hat. A hat and ginger hair combo, widely available in tourist shops throughout Scotland. He looks at Scottish identity with the help of Scottish comedienne Susan Calman, and looks at the Celtic roots of red hair and asks why ginger hair bullying is acceptable.
Written and performed by Richard Herring, starring Emma Kennedy, Susan Calman and guests.
Producer: Tilusha Ghelani.
