The lovely people have given me some new Red Raw dates. These are;
16th June, Edinburgh
5th August, Glasgow
6th August, Newcastle.
Next Gig: Red Raw, Edinburgh Stand, 29th July
My next gig and probably last before the Fringe will be at The Stand’s Red Raw night this Monday (29th July) at 8pm. £2 on door.
Next Gig: Footlights Theatre Lounge, Monday 15th July, 8pm
After a successful gig last night at Sofi’s bar in Leith I’m going straight into another one next Monday (15th July) at Footlights near Edinburgh Castle. As part of a revamp of the venue, the owners have created the new Footlights Theatre Lounge and I will be performing at the innagural Stand-Up night. £3 on the door at £10 for dinner and the show, so come…please.

Virgin Money Comedy Academy
After my first halting steps at The Stand Comedy Club’s Red Raw nights at the start of this year, I’ve made a little leaps forward in getting into the 2013 Fringe Comedy Academy, a summer school for budding comics run by The Stand and funded by Virgin Money.
Run by Stand legend Susan Morrison, it’s been a fantastic first two weeks – who knew there was so much involved in holding a microphone? Each week has two classes based around different themes, and in the middle we do five minutes of our material, repeated week after week, building into it what we’ve learnt. It’s extraordinarily well-run and well-thought out and is such a steep but exhilarating learning curve.
The course culminates in a show at The Stand on August 13. Tickets are £6 and can be booked here.
