SWAPPING socialist politics for a different kind of soapbox might seem an odd leap — but not for Rosie Kane.

The 51-year-old former MSP has reinvented herself as a stand-up performer.

An Evening with Rosie Kane is on at the Glad Cafe tonight (Thursday), offering a lighthearted look at the former politician’s life, from ice cream van days all the way to Holyrood.

Rosie told a sister paper: “I’ve always had a bit of the theatrics about me.

“There’s lots of nostalgia, and a lot of singing.

“There are some wee political bits — but not too many!”

Head to the Shawlands venue for 8pm, where tickets (£7) are available on the door.
