    Spending three weeks shouting in an empty room and flushing £4k down the toilet is a similar alternative for any aspiring comedian thinking of doing the festival, and would save on travel.

    Seeing Milton Jones and A N Other, the future ex Mrs Lee booked the shows so can't remember who (maybe I should ask her) just going to be a but Scottish for the weekend wandering the streets drinking prosecco it's much cheaper than white lighting up there these days so it's the preferred choice of beverage for the piss cans.

    Listen, Can you smell something?
    Just have a wander around. You'll find loads of "actors/ comedians/ twats" thrusting leaflets for free shows into your hands whilst showing off their impressive free form dance interpretation of a monkey stuck on the M25 on a bus.

    A lot of the shows are free. Some a funny. Some are not. Most if I'm honest.

    Enjoy!

    Toyed carefully with the idea but eventually decided I would rather boil my own arse

    Was tempted to go and see the The Crucible then saw it was through the medium of ballet.

    You could probably put that on as a show.

    I've been about three times, and tbh it's a lot more shit than most people let on. Edinburgh is a fucking rip off too at festival time, and it mostly pisses down.

    Mostly a load of shit with loads of foreigners clogging up the streets.

    The Phillistines on here make me laugh.
    I go every year. It’s brilliant.
    Camille O’Sullivan and the Fun Loving Crimewriters, among other things.
    I will go to others as and when I am there.
