Edinburgh Festival 2012

The Edinburgh Festival is but  couple of weeks away and I will be there, scrabbling around after 5 and 10 minute open-spots like a hobo searching a bin for the butt-ends of cigarettes. Unnecessarily unpleasant metaphors aside, these shows are on all through the festival and will feature a vast cheese-board of delicious comedians for you to sample, many of them less bitter-tasting, less pungent smelling and more amusing and less riddled with blue veins than me. So go along to them if you are there and support live comedy! It’s an entirely different experience from watching it on television, where the breakdowns and deaths are minimised and almost no-one gets their knob out. Out here in the booze and rain-sodden streets of Edinburgh however, you never know what you are going to see.

I will also, at some point, post some recommendations for shows, but I haven’t seen any yet because, you know, it hasn’t started.

Anyway, here are some dates. If you wold like to come and see me that would be nice. I also accept pints of beer, intoxicants, free books, food, moral support and job offers. See you there!

For news, reviews, live, real-time emotional discombobulation and updates on any new spots I might be doing you can follow me on twitter.
