Jokes were on teen Ross; ROSS 'TEDDY' CRAIG.
Now 31, he's completed a two-year stint working with The Comedy Unit TV firm and is forging a successful solo career as a stand-up comic and scriptwriter.
His career got off to a flying start last September when the Dunfermline comic was runner-up in the Scottish Comedian of the Year awards.
Ross started out in the business when a fellow student at Edinburgh Uni handed him a flyer for The Stand Comedy Club.
He signed up for comedy workshops and was soon doing his first gig there, mainly taking the mickey out of himself.
Ross said: "I just kept going after that. Let's face it, if you were bad, you'd be stopped."
Ross is a regular on the comedy circuit and often appears on TV and radio. He has been a gag writer on shows such as Mock The Week and Only An Excuse.
Alex Salmond's been accused of not putting his neck on the line over sectarianism. Harsh given he's not got a neck.
