Edinburgh Fringe 2014

Hard to pick a high-point of this year’s Edinburgh Festival. A toss-up, I think, between getting through the entire month of August without a single hangover, or having a walk-out in the middle of an afternoon promotional gig, where you do ten minutes and hand out flyers for your own show afterwards.

Bill Hicks

Only worked with Bill Hicks once. A TV show in Edinburgh. Sat in the green room a bit, polite minimal exchanges, both preoccupied with the tv in the corner which was showing a live feed from Russia of Yeltsin facing down the attempted military coup, outside the Moscow parliament in 91.
