Just got to go see things you have a bit of interest in, if i'm looking for stuff to go see and haven't got anything in mind i'll just go sit at the bar and wait for some cunt to come and sell you their show.

That sounds like a good idea tbqh. Laugh

I had a day at the fringe yesterday.

Seen quite a few decent free shows. But finished with Glaswegian comedians at bar bados. Fucking horrendous. Wasn't my choice but I went along.

Got tickets for later in the month to see the Magnets and then Massaoke.

Got to disagree about how busy it is. It was mobbed yesterday everywhere I went. Plenty fanny kicking about as well GodIsGod

If you work in town, for a month you’ve got the biggest arts festival in the world on your doorstep and could be heading along to world class comedy, theatre, music etc straight from the office. Alternatively you could head straight home and complain that the streets were too busy when you went to get your meal deal at lunch Warnock

Having to deal with getting a bus home in the festival on princes street is a fucking ballache, anyone saying otherwise can do one :Get To Woy 

I enjoy going out during the festival and going to the outside bar bits up by George Square but I struggle to really find any shows that look any good and are worth going to these days.

Warnock

One of the lassies was in my class at uni. Going by the pictures she's out up I'm guessing she was the youngest lassie, dark shoulder length hair. Remember her?

Aye she was on first. She looked maybe mid 40s? I was pretty burst but she looked like Zelda out the terrahawks.

Hotels and BnB’s in Stirling are all well down this year as the Germans can’t be fucked coming over here anymore since the Deirdre’s and Frank’s voted to GTF out. Presume Edinburgh will be the same. Monty Oh Well

Can you mind how her set went? She's only started doing stand-up in the last few months by the looks of it. Fair play, as it's something I would absolutely never do.

Anyway....

Went to see Tony Law this afternoon. Brilliant as ever.

If you like nonsense, surreal comedy, he's your man.

Helen someone if I'm thinking of the same one.

She was on about being single after her divorce and dating apps. Cringe as fuck. No cunt bar the other "comedians" laughed. It was awful.

Fair play Indeed but there was just nothing at all funny. You'd think a friend or family member would step in and tell her not to do it!
