My Edinburgh Fringe Experience: Some Memories & Reflections

  • 15 Aug 2019

As my run of 24 shows at the Edinburgh Fringe has now concluded, I thought I’d reflect on the whole experience. I have to say that I’m suffering a bit from the post Fringe blues, and there’s part of me that wishes I could have done the whole month. So how did I come to do it? ...

Edinburgh Fringe Diary - Sunday 11 August

  • 11 Aug 2019

It's my final day in Edinburgh and it was a very early start to head down to the BBC in Edinburgh to do the paper review on Paddy O'Connell's Broadcasting House show. It finished at 10 and I got back to my digs at 10.10 to record this week's FOR THE MANY PODCAST with Jacqui Sm...

Edinburgh Fringe Diary: Wednesday 7 August

  • 8 Aug 2019

A rather frustrating morning. I wrote my EDP column and then jumped into a cab to go to see my friend Sarah Southern perform her TENTATIVELY TORY show. The whole of Edinburgh seemed to be gridlocked. After forty minutes we'd had to avoid two sets of gridlock and ended back...

Edinburgh Fringe Diary: Tuesday 6 August

  • 7 Aug 2019

Up early for a radio panel with Mark Dolan, Christopher Biggins and Shapi Korsandi, then a quick visit to the Apple Store to buy a battery pack. They didn't have the one I wanted, natch. Someone texted me to say the Sturgeon interview was playing big in the Scottish papers and...

Edinburgh Fringe Diary: Monday

  • 6 Aug 2019

Twelve shows down, twelve to go. Today is a bank holiday in Scotland and Edinburgh was teeming with people enjoying both the Fringe and the good weather. I have to admit I got up late today but then did a bit of prep for the Nicola Sturgeon interview. At noon I got a ca...
