The city might be eagerly awaiting the start of the Commonwealth Games... but comedy fans are also gearing up for Still Game: Live at the Hydro.

And show creators Ford Kiernan and Greg Hemphill have celebrated the 100 day countdown.

Today marks 100 days until the first performance of the live run of the popular BBC show, which sees Ford and Greg play OAP double act Jack and Victor.

To make sure fans know exactly when the series is due to start playing at the Hydro, the pair have launched a countdown clock on the concourse of the Clydeside venue.

Reuniting the original television show cast for the first time in six years, Still Game: Live at the Hydro runs for 21 shows between Friday, September 19 and Friday, October 10.

When tickets first went on sale they proved so popular that organisers added an extra five dates to the run.

Still Game remains one of Scotland's most successful TV comedies, with 44 episodes broadcast over six series, two Christmas specials and two Hogmanay specials.

Tickets are available online from or or by calling 0844 395 4000.
