I went to Edinburgh [Aug. 25th, 2008|11:34 pm]
Listen in, listen Ian!
I did. I went to Edinburgh. It was great, and I only got absolutely p1ss wet through once, when I came out of one show and had to go to the far side of the city centre to get to another one. The show I'd just come out of though was Stewart Lee's show Scrambled Egg (He said egg!) which was the most I laughed at anything at all while I was there. Other excellent things I saw were both Daniel Kitson's shows, Pappy's Fun Club, a show with Simon Munnery playing Queen Elizabeth I and oter people I go and see when they're on in London all year round too.

Away from comedy, I climbed up a hill yesterday:


and I went to a football match on Saturday afternoon at Hearts. I was a St. Mirren fan for the day though, as I'd have had to queue up for ages to buy a ticket for the home end, and there was no queue at all for the away end. I got quite excited and was a bit disappointed when St. Mirren missed a sitter to equalise in the dying seconds.

I have to go back to work tomorrow. Hooray!(lie)

When I was there it rained solidly midweek for about 48 hours, and intermittently the rest of the time.

Stewart Lee was good but not great on the night I saw him. The audience seemed a bit unresponsive and I heard someone afterwards saying he had "gone too far". I wasn't sure if she meant extending a joke for too long, or becoming offensive.

Did you see either of the Clive James shows? I wish I'd gone up when he was there.

when I was a teenager, I went to a drama club run partly by Tom and Ben from Pappy's fun club.

That's my most impressive claim to fame, sadly.
