A poster advertising Hullawrerr at Jimmy Logan's Metropole in 1968. The show starred Rikki Fulton and Jack Milroy as Francie and Josie and the comedians Hector Nicol and Clem Ashby were also on the bill.
Francie and Josie were the gallus Glaswegians in Scotland's most popular double act of the 1960s and 1970s. Dressed in their sharp suits and brothel creepers, the loveable wideboys would invariably greet their audience at the start of a show with the welcome "Hulaw rerr." The slow-witted but eager-to-please Francie (Milroy) and the garrulous and self-confident Josie (Fulton) starred in their own sitcom on Scottish Television, 1962-1965. The characters made several comeback appearances by popular demand, before Milroy's death in 2001.
