Podcast episode 33: Grainne Maguire and Lou Sanders

Grainne Maguire Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2012

Grainne Maguire

So Jack has finally made it to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and just in time to help interview charming Irish stand-up Grainne Maguire. We discuss the ominous presence of a beautiful, bright sun in August, and the impending doom that must surely follow. Also, Grainne’s excellent show Where Are All the Fun Places and Are Lots of People There Having Better Fun?, which delves deep into a past tinged with disappointment.

Grainne Maguire: Where Are All the Fun Places and Are Lots of People There Having Better Fun?
Underbelly Bristo Sq, 4.20pm, £8.50

Lou Sanders Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2012

Lou Sanders

Also joining us is Lou Sanders, whose show And Now For A Nice Evening With Wallan is as an exuberant trip into discovering the moments of life that make you most happy. I think. It’s hard to tell. There are lots of costumes and props and roller skates and bed sheets though. And all are entirely appropriate. Lou explains a bit of what it’s meant to mean in our interview.

holly burn mark stephenson edinburgh festival

Podcast episode 32: Holly Burn and Mark Stephenson

Holly Burn

Holly Burn

More interviews with comedians at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2012, as I talk to the queen of the surreal Holly Burn about her magnificent show The H Club – Edinburgh’s least exclusive private members club. We also mention the Olympics and a Twin Peaks party. Which sounds fun. Mainly it’s about the comedy though.

Holly Burn: The H Club
Just the Tonic at the Caves, 4.40pm, £7

Mark Stephenson

Mark Stephenson

Also chatting away like a big chatter is Mark Stephenson whose show Someone, Somewhere tries to find meaning in a contemporary life that may seem lacking. I think he achieves. Or maybe he just questions it a lot, like in 24. It’s ambiguous anyway. Oh, and very funny. So go see it. It’s free too.

Mark Stephenson: Someone, Somewhere
Royal Mile Tavern, 2.40pm, free

Gareth Morinan Edinburgh Festival 2012

Gareth Morinan

More from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2012 as Tom talks to Gareth Morinan about what a Truth Doodler is, as well as how he’s coping with doing six shows at one festival. Well it turns out, although he does get angry about certain things. But that’s the point really.

Gareth Morinan: Truth Doodler
Underbelly Bristo Sq, 1.30pm, £8.50

Leads and Stern Edinburgh Festival

Leads and Stern

And from behind a plastic cow, I spoke to sketch duo Leads & Stern about how to make a show silly and fun. I also manage to blag myself into their group as Leads, Stern and Meek, although I’ve still to receive that phone call about rehearsals. Get on it!

Thomas Hardie

In our first podcast from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2012, we speak to Caroline Hardie, one half of sketch group Thomas Hardie, as she discusses doing a Thomas Hardie show on her own (her comedy partner isn’t in Edinburgh this year due to having a lovely child). She’s managing magnificently though, and it’s a fantastic show of characters both real and imagined. Thomas Hardie are also one of our recommended free shows.

Sad Faces - Edinburgh Festival 2012

Sad Faces

Sad Faces show up too for the second year running to discuss their thrilling show of one story told from four different perspectives. There’s villains and heroes and ghosts.
