Mess Around Edinburgh – Night 17

Ok peeps. the Fringe is getting on top of me. It’s three hours to my final show, and I have to quickly write the updates of last night’s shows. Here’s what happened.

The early show was memorable for a front row that consisted of a group of three Scottish couples, a man whose wife was at home, and a single English girl. After calling a Real Estate Manager by the name of Chris to the stage, where he dutifully picked out who was married to whom, I tried to set single Sophie up with an eligible bachelor in the audience.

With the help of some appropriate music, a fan, and a scarf, we created a lovely romantic moment on stage, and a couple were almost born:


The second show fired up nicely, as I found two guys called Adam, one of whom looked like what would have happened of the other version had started smoking joints at University.


I asked the more clean cut of the Adam’s (from USA) to try Irn Bru for the first time, and here’s how it looked:


I also found a lady called Jennifer in the front row, who was wearing a Fringe pass. Turns out she is doing a show that she wrote, and she gave me a flyer. I then took the flyer around the audience, trying to find which accent would give it the best voice over effect.

I tried Samuel from Henley-On-Thames


but the best voice came from Katy, who put on a superb French accent


Well done Katy, you made an excellent voice over person. If you’re interested, the show is called “Photographing The Dead” and here is a photo of Jennifer and her Mum.


And there you have it.

Tonight I have my final show, and then my charity auction for the Sick Kids which will take place at midnight. You can help the cause by donating here www.justgiving.com/AdamHillsHector or by texting HECT87 and the amount you wish to donate in pounds to 70070.

Gotta run, more to come

    Thank you Adam for a great show – laughing and smiling was just what the Doctor ordered. I’m glad the lighting was low enough to hide just how red I was after the set up though!
    Great night and as ever, always worth buying a ticket for your show.
