For the first time in a long time, we’re headed back to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this year.
We’re producing two shows with Robin Ince and, knowing us, we’ll probably do a few other random things as well. Details of both shows and ticket links are below.
ROBIN INCE – WEAPONS OF EMPATHY
02-27 AUG – 13:00
GILDED BALLOON AT THE MUSEUM
Award-winning comedian and bibliomaniac, Robin Ince, takes audiences on a celebratory tour of the places books can take us, and of the ideas that can make wonder and widen the sky. Robin was the Bookseller’s Association 2022 Author of the Year. The Times Literary Supplement described Bibliomaniac as ‘joyous, irreverent – liberating and life-affirming’ while Eric Idle said ‘one of the most delightful books I have ever read… always making me laugh’. Expect a chaos of words and ideas, love and delight. And also a very long reading list.

ROBIN INCE – MELONS: A LOVE LETTER TO STAND UP
02-27 AUG – 20:35 (NOT 15TH)
THE STAND AT NEW TOWN THEATRE
Robin’s first solo show was a disaster, but a disaster that ended with him punching a melon with Vernon Kay’s face drawn on it before singing Mustang Sally (still no cruise ship bookings). Despite this, actually, because of this, Robin ended up playing to arenas with Professor Brian Cox. This is the story of how he fell in love with comedy thanks to The Goodies and Rik Mayall and how after 30 years he started to find his voice. Winner: Rose D’Or, Sony Gold and The Arthur C Clarke Award.
