Ouch at the Edinburgh Fringe #2

Kate Ansell | 21:32 UK time, Wednesday, 8 August 2007

Hello again.

I wasn’t sure you’d believe I really AM in Edinburgh, so here are some photos to prove it. It must be Scotland because here are some men with bagpipes. And it’s certainly the Podcast because here’s Mat Fraser outside BBC Scotland.


If you go to Ouch's Flickr page, you can see me attempting to get into a tent on a building site to hear Liz Bentley’s set. Luckily for you, she’s going to play us out of the Edinburgh Podcast, so you can listen to her without that particular feat of endurance – and as an added bonus she’ll explain just for you how it came to pass that she was in that tent in the first place.

Plus, comedienne Tanyalee Davis will be helping Mat and Liz guess the disability in Vegetable, Vegetable, or Vegetable. Contestant this month is our new guest blogger Jemma. Tune in to discover if her disability is fiendishly complicated enough to fox them even with such special assistance.

Plus, plus ... Ooh, lot’s of stuff. We’ll be asking our Edinburgh performers to vote for their favourite ever crip jokes in Joke Box Jury. Do be sure to email us if you think you can do better ...

We’re bursting with guests including the gorgeous American Lynn Manning, who’s so good looking he got mistaken for Samuel L Jackson on his first night here, apparently.

You’re just going to have to listen for yourself, no?

Right, I’m off to try and persuade EasyJet to let me pre-board. Wish me luck.
