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.

A Four Star review from the Ed Fest Mag here:
Another review: bit mean with the stars but very nice words. (rather like an old-school Hollywood studio head, I guess)
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.
