More Edinburgh Mementos…

More Edinburgh Mementos…

Some trips down memory lane to when I met Stanhope and Rouse at Edinburgh, where Doug nearly got beaten up but Scott Capuro saved the day, I cried at Wil Hodgson’s show, and I won a thing that I’m still bangin’ on about.

A hard week, a lovely gig, a tired but happy Wes Packer…

This week has been difficult. As I’ve already mentioned, I’ve spent the last few weeks coming off one set of meds and onto another – with the new meds failing to counter the withdrawal from the old. So I’ve been dealing with withdrawal AND side […]

Staying safe at the Edinburgh Fringe: Home Safe Collective

Staying safe at the Edinburgh Fringe: Home Safe Collective

Following the rape and murder of Eurydice Dixon, a Melbourne comedian, on her way home after a gig, a group of comedians has formed the Home Safe Collective. Dressing rooms aren’t safe for women these days, never mind the streets. Please give generously to this very important scheme.

Home Safe Collective was started by a group of comedians who wish to ensure that everybody gets home safely from their shows at the Edinburgh Fringe. The Fringe is an expensive time of year, and spending money on a cab home can be impossible for some, so we want to make sure everyone can get home safely and nobody feels they can’t get home safely. We have set up an account with CityCabs in Edinburgh whose drivers are police checked. For more information and if you want to register on the system (and we encourage all female Fringe performers to do so) you can email homesafecollective@gmail.com. Details of how to access the service will be sent out nearer Fringe time. Be safe and look after yourselves.
