Edinburgh Festival Picks

In reverse order

The Gently Progressive Behemoth. Witty micro-sketches. Or something. (I got on stage!)
Eurobeat. Brilliant Eurovision parody, worth it for 'Iceland' alone.
A Beginners Guide to German Humour. Very funny indeed.

Simon Munnery was patchy, Andrew O'Neall a bit better and I really didn't get the Turing Test Opera, though Kate liked it. I think anyone interested in neurolinguistics would find it hard to resist screaming out "That isn't how you program an AI!" or something similar.

1 and a half days isn't enough to enjoy it all really. Indeed, I don't imagine a month is long enough. Definitely doing back next year.
