Dominic Holland made his name at the Fringe. His first time in Edinburgh, in 1993 he won the Perrier Best Newcomer award, and was later nominated for the full Perrier. He's made TV appearances, is a regular on the circuit… and was anointed by Bob Monkhouse as "Britain's funniest not yet famous comedian". He's a stand-up with many highs (and lows). He's also a father, and in 2017 he brought his show ‘Eclipsed' to the Free Fringe. The eclipse in question is by his son Tom Holland. How was Dominic's journey to where he is today, how did the whole family deal with each other, and how much of a protective father he is to a really talented son. It's a different viewpoint on the classic story of rising from humble roots to a hero - literally. With Jokes. So let's go back to the Fringe, back to the Voodoo Rooms, and the Free Fringe, to find out the delight of being Eclipsed.

Was this a rock n roll hour of gags and wordplay? No. But it was a master at work. The Fringe is more than stand-up comedy, and our Fringe interviews always try to get the same balance. And this certainly was it - Batsford could capture the room in the same way as any Perrier nominee, could twist his tales with a look, and bring out emotions with a few flickers of fingers over the piano keys, along with Myself and Nick Awde caught up with Batsford in the podcast studio to talk about Batsford's show, his approach to music, and the power of a silent moment.

How a successful TV appearance become an albatross round his neck, the freedom of coming to the Edinburgh Fringe and recreating national monuments out of cornflake packages, going to a funeral in character and having another success that came with negative effects, what it's like to be immortalised on the Simpsons and whether being a rebellious, self-sabotaging comedian is possible any more.

Lady Carol, a Fringe stalwart then and now, back on the touring circuit of cabaret and festivals and the like, returned to the Fringe in 2014 with a mandolin and ukulele in tow, Billed as a show with songs of spirited spite and tales of melancholic mischief, Lost and Found, has 30 songs, and 30 stories, and of course, you can't get all of that into a single hour. The random nature guaranteed something different for every audience, kept the show fresh for the whole month, but perhaps made it difficult to review as presented… …but this is a show where the performer, rightly, comes first and comes highly recommended. In the days before he got a bus, Bob Slayer had a bookshop. That bookshop was a Fringe venue. And in that venue was Lady Carol, so let's head back to 2014 to be lost and found.

Carey Marx' Fringe in 2013 is the sort of one-line elevator pitch that Hollywood loves - ‘I had to cancel my show in 2012 because I had a heart attack… let's talk about that in 2013'. Marx was already an accomplished storyteller who had that delightful ability to keep the story on the straight and narrow but twist everything else just a little, under the surface, and capture the audience. Intensive Carey - which is still a fabulous pun nearly ten years later - did just that. The Fringe is also family, and knowing that Carey was absent in 2012 meant that so many people - including myself - were delighted just to have him back. This show, just as many others, started in an incredibly relatable place. So let's go back to 2013, go back to welcome Carey back to the Gilded Balloon, and experience some Intensive Carey.

For countless decades, the ‘observational comedy' routine has been a staple of stand ups… yes we have all seen just how many Cafe Nero's there are, and how many stamps you need to get a free coffee, but Ismo brought a new angle on this to the Fringe… doing it in his second language. A laid back Finnish style put me in mind of the razer sharp gentleness of Arnold Brown. Ismo's skills wasn't the choice of well-worn topics, is was putting a twist on the resulting points that lifted this show up. So we return to the Gilded Balloon, we return to the time honoured comedian watching our everyday life, we return to a rather chaotic studio, to Observing the Obvious.

TW: This episode discusses sexual assault and rape, please take care whilst listening. Today's guest is an actor, author, comedian and self-professed celebrity in North-West London. She grew up in the world of privilege and politics as the daughter of labour politician Alastair Campbell who has attended Hannah Montana concerts with Boris Johnson AND went to school with international pop sensation Dua Lipa. Her book, AMAZING DISGRACE, was described by Katherine Ryan as 'An outpouring of truth, wit, and beautiful comedic wisdom' and Scarlett Curtis as 'Bold, vulnerable and hilarious.' The front cover, which shows Grace riding a dick-shaped, should say everything you need to know about what's in store. On 6th August, during of her stint at the Edinburgh Fringe festival, she published an article in the Guardian, discussing a sexual assuault that had happened whilst in the US the previous year. The article spoke sensitively about assault, the topic of consent and a failing judicial system that cannot protect victims of rape (most notably women). The piece immediately garnered an outpouring of praise and if you haven't read it already, I urge you to pause this podcast and read it immediately. It is this vulnerable honesty surrounding not just the topic of intimacy, but destigmatising shame around sex, mental health, and the female body - that has made her so beloved amongst her fans. She is a loud, unapologetic “sex positive” , shame embracing comedian who hosts her own comedy night “the disgraceful club” and is taking her critically acclaimed show “A Show About Me(n)” on tour around the UK next year. Said about herself - “GRACE CAMPBELL IS THE FUNNIEST PERSON SHE HAS EVER MET. IF SHE WASN'T HER, SHE WOULD WANT TO BE HER. ” She's an utter disgrace that all women love and tory men are afraid of, healing the nation, one fanny fart at a time. Grace Campbell, it is a HUGEE pleasure to welcome you on to the podcast! ***Today's episode is in partnership with Deshall Beauty.*** Early listeners will know that the first EVER episode of this podcast was with my amazingly talented good friend Tanyia Ahmed, Founder of Deshall.

An artist at heart with a long and varied list of interests, Jeff Innocent went on a stand-up comedy course in 1996 - led by alt-comedy legend Tony Allen - and he's not stopped since then. Jeff has carved out a place in the UK stand-up scene like no other, as well as working as a writer and actor. In 2006 he brought the show Eco-worrier to the Edinburgh Fringe - environmentalism remains a strong part of his ethos to this day - and it's interesting to be reminded of how the path looked some 16 years ago.

2014 saw Australian comic Celia Pacquola return to Edinburgh for her fourth Fringe Show. ‘Let Me Know How It All Worked Out' looked at the world of psychics and their promise of foretelling the future; specifically one who said she would never have children. (Spoiler… congratulations are in order, Celia and her partner had their first child earlier this year,). Since the Fringe Pacquola moved frequently between the UK Australia, with various apeprances, scriptwriting, and starring appearances in a wide range of shows on the circuit, including radio work on Fox FM and Radio 4, TV work on Would I Lie To You, Live At The Apollo, and Have You Been Paying Attention, and staring in Rosehaven, and The Breaker Uppers. All that was ahead of her in 2014 when she joined me in the podcast studio to talk about her show. It wasn't the first time she'd been on the Fringe podcast, so the whole ‘tell us about your show' quickly descended into discussions of synchronised diving, Tom Daley, Pro/Am contest, and a love of Converse trainers. This week's trip is back to the Gilded Ballon, back to a time when the future we live in now was quite definitely not going to happen, as Celia Pacquola asks the audience to Let Me Know How It All Works Out,

The world of H P Lovecraft is one that many people have explored, both the horror of the writing and the horror of the man. In 2015 Shedload Theatre looked at the former, in an inventive show called The Statement Of Randolph Carter. The big moment in the show is the Foley work. The show is presented as a radio play, and that means lots of sound effects performed live. The story is very much classic horror, but the theatre experience is much more visual than you would expect… and thoroughly engaging. There's also the importance of the entire body of work built on H P Lovecraft's work - all which is out of copyright and free to perform. As Shedload Theatre piled into the studio, we did something a little different. Yes there's an interview in here to find out more about the show… but there's also a performance from part of the show (a story called The Temple) which they perform live… along with all those foley effects! And so we head, warily, to Surgeons Hall, to a desk of foley effects and horror, to the Statement Of Randolph Carter.

This week's episode is the final show recorded at the team's sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2022, and they went out with a bang as their guest was the wonderful comedian, Rosie Holt!You would have seen Rosie online with her brilliant character parodying a right-wing mouthpiece, well on this show she came along as her delightful self and told us about *some* of the times she's been scammed ... seriously, it's a miracle she's got ANY money left at all.The gang then crack a case of royal proportions, which also happens to be fitting with their location at the time of record and we then hear from a member of the audience who could compare scam notes with Rosie, although they probably shouldn't go into business together.Taylor, Hannah, Catie (and producer Amanda) would like to thank everyone who came to see them at this year's fringe and made it such a special time, they'll be back in Edinburgh in 2023, but in the meantime, you can catch them on tour, details below,Taylor, Hannah and Catie will be appearing all over the UK in Autumn 2022:in LEEDS, they are at The Wardrobe on 16th October -/thewardrobe.seetickets.com/event/drunk-women-solving-crime/the-wardrobe/2373626in BRISTOL, they are at The Hen and Chicken on 24th November - www.henandchicken.com/events/?tribe_paged=1&tribe_event_display=list&tribe-bar-date=2022-11-24in BIRMINGHAM, they are at The Glee on 25th November - booking.glee.co.uk/19283in SALFORD, they are at The Lowry on 26th November - thelowry.com/whats-on/drunk-women-solving-crime-2/and then back in LONDON for their Christmas show at Leicester Square Theatre - leicestersquaretheatre.com/drunk-women-solving-crime/And you can also support them on Patreon where you'll find ad free episodes, prior access to some records, invites to live zooms and shout outs! patreon.com/drunkwomensolvingcrime Hosted on Acast.

He played Hamlet in his thirties… and again in his eighties. In between? Edgar, Romeo, Leontes, Macbeth, Coriolanus, Iago, Richard III, Prospero, and King Lear. Plus, of course, Magneto and Gandalf. On this episode, we talk with Sir Ian McKellan. Last year, he played Hamlet in an age-blind production of the play at the Theatre Royal Windsor, returning to the role for the first time since 1971. Then, at this year's Edinburgh Fringe, McKellen played Hamlet again, speaking the part alongside a ballet dancer in a production directed by Peter Schaufuss. Now, he's is appearing as King Hamlet's ghost in an essay film about the play called Hamlet Within. McKellen joined us from his home in East London for an extended conversation with Barbara Bogaev. In part 1 of our interview, we start by discussing the age-, gender-, and color-blind stage production of Hamlet he starred in last year, directed by Sean Mathias.
