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 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.
