I am in you right now
Title only applies if you are the city of Edinburgh; apologies for any confusion or alarm otherwise
I’m ‘up’ for the Edinburgh Fringe! I don’t have a show but I’m here to do spots on other people’s shows and I’m going to keep doing that until there’s no more Fringe left.
I have already caused a big TikTok star to walk out in disgust after my set (although that may have been partly due to earlier events involving repeated use of the R-slur).
Here is a list of everything I’m booked to do so far:
Adventures! Journey Through Dungeons with Dragons - 16th to 20th August
A kids’ show where we play a simplified form of D&D with kids. Yeah I know, seems like a bad idea for me to be on this. I’ll be on my best behaviour but I said ‘fuck’ in front of my own nephew on Saturday so maybe book for one of the earlier dates.
1001 Normal Dysfunctional Families - 16th & 23rd August
Cynically search-optimised to appear high up on the official fringe site, this will involve my 5 minute standup set about my family (which I should probably try and write this afternoon), then we do some roleplay where we pretend to be related (well within my wheelhouse) and then some improv games or something?
What Would You Do If That Was You? - 16th August
Another panel format. Serena Smart will be on this too and she’s funny so worth catching.
YourGP Appointment - 17th August
I will be paying a private doctor £150 to refill my blood pressure medication prescription because I forgot to do it before I left and NHS Scotland’s computers can’t talk to NHS England. Not open to the public but after a few more years of NHS underfunding you’ll probably be paying to see a GP too.
AI Jesus – Peter Bazely with Special Guest(s) - 17th and 18th August
I’m special guest(s), doing a 7 spot in the middle. Seems like it’s a great show.
Collect jacket from Ace Cleaning Centre - 18th August
I will be collecting my nice jacket from the dry cleaners after sweating through it during Junk Mail Order Bride and leaving salt stains. I was hoping it would be back earlier, but this place has to send it away. I should have just taken it back and found a proper dry cleaner. I bought a new jacket from TK Maxx that’s cut like a suit jacket, with a breast pocket and sleeve buttons and everything, but is made of hoody material. £24.99 down from an RRP of £120. Now I want a hoody that’s made of tweed.
Curry Gelato - 20th/25th/27th August
I will be supporting Gurps Cheema in his show which has a great poster.
Doing Bits At The Three Sisters - 24th/26th August
I will be doing some bits. At the Three Sisters. Photogenic stage.
Arguments - The Comedy Debate Show - 23rd/27th August
Another panel format!
I’ll probably be doing some other stuff too, jumping on compilations shows as the fancy takes me. I’ll send out an update at the weekend. If you want the latest, don’t forget you can email me by replying to this.
Bye, love you bye!
