Edinburgh diary 09/08/19 – all the weather, again!

Yet again, we have had all the weather in Edinburgh, and it is bloody exhausting.

I set out before 11am to flyer for the early ComedySportz show, and it was a light drizzle.  By the time I’d got to the venue an hour or so later, it was pouring it down, and I was soaked through.

A brief respite wearing my playing stuff for the show, and then I had the joy of changing back in to soaking wet clothes to go back outside to flyer.

When I emerged from the venue it was now bright sunshine.  Now I’m stripping off layers and stuffing them in my bag, and reaching for my sun cream.  I can’t deal with this madness.  Who do I write to?

Shit Socialist

It was a blessing then that I managed 15 in for the the show, as flyering had been all but impossible.

I actually asked who had come because I had flyered them, and it was only three of them.  Thank God that I’d had a decent organic reach for today.  Maybe the Fringe brochure is worth it after all!

I was happy with the show, especially after expecting to have a much lower turnout given the circumstances.

After the show I managed the later ComedySportz show, got to the gym, and compered at the Salfunni night.

I then topped off the night with an appalling takeaway of chips, cheese and donner meat.  Yeah, great that I went to the gym isn’t it?


My show, Shit Socialist, is on 3.15pm, 1-25 Aug, at The Counting House (Attic).  Free entry, PWYW.

ComedySportz is on twice daily – INFO
