EDINBURGH -- When you’re a comedian watching another comedian’s show, what do you say when you get “crowd-worked?” I’m genuinely rooting for whoever is on stage so I don’t want to be combative or vague or clever when asked a question. So when I reluctantly wound up...

Edinburgh -- Let’s talk about the c-word. The c-bomb. The country without a tree. She-who-must-not-be-named. When “bitch” isn’t doing the trick. We know the word. A word I once vowed to never utter – until I met one. It’s strong, it’s vulgar, it’s a...

EDINBURGH -- “We’re artists. We shouldn’t have to prostitute ourselves.” That battle cry came wafting over the high-walls of The Pear Tree’s outside courtyard. On-stage is The Anti-Poet, Paul Eccentric on clever beat-poetry vocals and Ian Newman keeping the upright...
