Can someone tell me if the word "brilliant" is used in the UK like we use Amazing or Fabulous? I am releasing a trick in the US and want to make a version for the UK and would like some input. If someone could let me know that would be fabulous!!!
Thanks

While George is Northern Irish and I am Southern Irish and we both live in the United Kingdom - even though Southern Ireland is not part of the UK and a separate political entity - I live in England, I can confirm that the terms, Brilliant, Amazing and Fabulous are used in Great Britain (England Scotland and Wales) and both parts of Ireland, North and South and for all intents and purposes are interchangeable as far as the audience responses to both George's and my shows are concerned.

Kids in UK schools get their worked stamped with brilliant, excellent, amazing adjectives etc

fabulous gets used due to a tv program their parents would have watched (or in another from the 60s it was F.A.B.)

they get used the same way as Americans use outstanding
