Edinburgh diary 11/08/19 – strepsils from a kind audience

Bucket collection Edinburgh Fringe

Today I had another full audience, but unlike yesterday, they knew how to laugh!

I was a bit worried beforehand because it had poured down with rain the entire day.  In the end though, I filled the room, so it was all ok.  I mean, apart from having to walk around in soaking wet clothes all day.

And as I said, it was a pleasant show to play.  Still a little tired and effected by the heat, so not my best show, but more than good enough.

It didn’t help that both of the microphones were knackered.  I swapped the mics around, but it didn’t help.  In the end I had to give in and go without a mic altogether.  That didn’t help with my already ailing voice.

The audience were kind to me with the collection, giving generously.  One guy went a step further and gave me a strip of Strepsils (as you can see from the picture).


After my show I did the late ComedySportz show and then a last minute booking with them for Comedy Club 4 Kids.  Both very nice shows.

Then I had to traipse back to the flat in the rain.  But I knew at the end of the journey I could change out of wet clothes, and in to nice warm pyjamas.

Add to that a nice £10 meal deal from Tescos (including a bottle of Rosé, since drained), and Match of the Day 2, and I was a very happy bunny indeed.

Hopefully this will have been enough to build up my reserves for the next few days.


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
