The Understudy

Comic Fringes, Series 9 Episode 1 of 3

Story series featuring new writing by leading comedians, recorded live in front of an audience at this year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Crammed into her tiny dressing room, an actress looks back on the highs and lows - mainly lows - of her life and career. A poignant and funny monologue written and performed by Jenny Éclair.

Completing the line-up, and coming up over the next two Sundays, will be witty tales by award-winning Irish comic Aisling Bea and Scottish master of droll Sanjeev Kohli.

Produced by Kirsteen Cameron.
