The Edinburgh Festival: Fringe – Jo Caulfield: Two-Faced ***?

We try and see Jo Caulfield every year, as I love here sense of humour and the shows are great.  This year was a new venue at The Stand Comedy Club in York Place, a nice intimate venue that can hold about 170 people!

.. Guaranteed laughs from queen of comedy. Star of Radio 4. Razor-sharp observations and scandalous one-liners. ‘Sharp-witted, urban comedy that goes down a treat’ (Times). ‘Wonderfully bitchy’ (Observer). ‘Pure comedy gold’ (Evening Standard).

The review was right, Jo “picked” on (as usual and why we sat at the back) a few people in the front row and  a number of typical subjects that left your sides hurting.

If you have an hour to spare, go see Jo, you wont regret it

The Edinburgh Festival: Fringe – Silent Disco

So after the races we had a couple of hours to kill before Silent Disco.  Now for those trendy festival loving people, you will know what Silent Disco is all about (Silent Disco are due to attend the Reading Festival this year).

Any way this is the most bizarre disco I have ever been to,  but was awesome.  Basically it has two DJ’s at the front, and you are given a set of headphone with two channels (one for each DJ).  That’s it!  You select the music you want to hear and dance you heart out in your own world.

What is strange is that when you take your headphone off, people look really strange just dancing to “no music”

Silent Disco is only at the festival until Sunday 17th so if your up, get ur butt down to Silent Disco, it’s just the best thing we have done this year!

The Edinburgh Festival: Fringe – Fringe Racenight

So Tuesday night we headed over to Musselburgh Racecourse for the Fringe Racenight.  It was a shame it was raining.  It was a 6 race event and was quite good fun, despite the rain. The Fringe Racenight  is billed as  an evening at the races with a difference. Alongside all the fun and excitement of horseracing, you can enjoy a host of Fringe entertainers performing at the racecourse.

This might have been how it was billed but we only saw two acts and they only performed one song/act, so it didn’t really have the festival feel, but the racing where good.

We missed the first and last race, and out of the remaining 4 won two of them.It was a nice evening out at the races, but didn’t feel like the fringe ..
