Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2010. Day Nine.

Daniel Kitson: It's Always Right Now, Until It's Later.

Unfortunately I can't remember much about this show except that it had a very pretty set. It was waaaaaaay too early and day nine at the Edinburgh Fringe. Daniel Kitson, please forgive me.

Tim Key.
With A String Quartet. On A Boat. Edinburgh Album Launch.

A small crowd gathered in Edinburgh's Angular Records for the first album launch of 'Tim Key. With A String Quartet. On A Boat'. Key read out a few poems with musical backing from Nick Mohammed and performed a sketch about eggs with Alex Horne while standing upon a step ladder. "How can you lose a can of Irn Bru?!". I had the opportunity to buy the album and get it signed.

John-Luke Roberts Distracts You From A Murder.

This show really should've been nominated for "Best Newcomer". It was great when I saw the preview in London at The Invisible Dot HQ and it was even greater in The Burgh. Roberts' audience insults are genius.

A thought.

My yearly trip to the Edinburgh Fringe is always a highlight. Next year I won't cram in as many shows and try not to consume as much booze.
