Irritating little alarm clock crickets interrupted my deep slumber at 9am. I groaned and went back to sleep. One hour and 50 minutes later, I woke up in a panic. Bridget Christie! The show I refused to believe had been scheduled at 11.10am was starting in 20 minutes half way across town. I leapt out of bed, and began a madcap rush across Edinburgh to reach the Stand in time for the show. It was well worth the rush. Bridget’s show is fantastically good, impassioned and articulate stand up – as funny as it is enraging.
Fired up by this brilliant performance I then saw John-Luke Roberts’ Sock Puppet, Nick Helm: One Man Mega-Myth, Stephen K. Amos’s talk show, Ronny Chieng, Henning Wehn’s Christmas do and Lili La Scala’s Another F*cking Variety Show which ripped the roof off the Pleasance Dome on its last night at the Fringe leaving me frankly shattered and exhausted at the end of the second and final day of the 4amcab 2013 Edinburgh Tour.
So much brilliant, brilliant stuff. I am now starting work on a 56 slide presentation for Lee tomorrow morning.
Thanks for coming along for the ride.
