Once more I’m podcasting the Edinburgh Fringe, but it’s not the show you might be expecting.
With its tounge slightly in cheek, FringePig has award its first “ham-fisted” award for “the Fringe reviewer who most misunderstood what they were looking at.” to The List’s Graeme Connelly for his review of Stuat Goldsmith’s show: Graeme wins for his stunning use of bathos. In his review of ‘Stuart Goldsmith: An Hour‘ he worships at the feet of Goldsmith for several paragraphs, and then ends with three stars. It’s a simple formula, but a winning one. The funniest reviews are often the simplest. Connelly receives the staggering sum of £50 which, we are told, can buy a very brief sensation
Back in August 2005 I started a podcast around the Edinburgh Fringe. It’s now August 2015, and I’m still doing it. The Edinburgh Fringe Show is coming up to the boil, with blog posts, preview podcasts, and diary entries, before the daily on-ehour show kicks off next week on Monday 10th. Head over to edinburghfringe.thepodcastcorner.com to keep up to date with all the fun of the Fringe.
