Hello, Media Hordes!

Show me an artist completely comfortable with self-promotion, and I'll show you... very few people, actually. Mercifully, many of the reviewers I spoke with had kind eyes, spoke to me like a real human being, and even if they could not promise a review, always left me with a bit of hope.

Say Hello, Edinburgh!

Edinburgh, where every other word seems to be "wee." "Would you fancy a wee cup of coffee, then?" No, I'd like a giant super-deluxe size that Mayor Mike Bloomberg would like to ban, thanks very much, I'm American.

One of the things I adore about theater is the fact that it's so ephemeral. What I do is created in the moment. It exists for that moment of time, andfor that time, it's magic.

Most comics there have done the Fringe, and all had great stories to tell. But two separate female comics in two separate conversations told me I was going to have a lot of fun, then both said, in these exact words, "but you'll cry quite a lot." Cry? I'm going to cry?

I've always told my siblings that I would only move to Texas if I were on my death bed -- and now that seems likely. The medical system is excellent, and it's my mother who is. Dying, I mean. And therein lies my dilemma.

If you've never been to the Fringe, let me paint a little picture: imagine being an athlete headed for Olympics, except instead of training for the big event with daily exercise and drills, you down BLT triples, sleep weird hours, and drink like a sailor to cope with stress.

As Scotland's biggest blues band (at full strength we are a 12 piece outfit) it will never be the easiest thing making sure that all components of the show are smoothly coordinated.

Edinburgh Was a Stopover

I first went to the Edinburgh Festival in 2002, before I'd properly entered the role of stand up comic. At that time I was, more than anything, just a 22-year-old attracted to anywhere that had public toilets older than my country.

I don't want to brag, but I am incredible at packing suitcases. I have some helpful things to share with audience members, or, gulp, reviewers and critics who will be headed to Edinburgh this August for the controlled chaos that is the Festival Fringe.

Although the Fringe at first seems intimidating, I'm going to Edinburgh with real joy. That's not because I have visions of winning awards and getting international tours, although those would be quite nice indeed.

The Presentment -- Father Doesn't Know Jack!

I highly recommend The Presentment, though I would love this show to play in areas that aren't "the choir" but rather the persecutors and haters of its message.
