Comedian. Writer. Biped.


Yet again, it's that time of year when everyone in the comedy industry, except for Carey, heads up to Edinburgh (or down to Edinburgh, depending where you live [or stays in Edinburgh, if you already live there]) for the Fringe Festival.

In this episode Nick and Carey talk about how long they've been going to the Fringe, their memories of early shows, how preview season works, how much the whole thing costs, and how the Free Fringe has changed it all.

This year it's been even more difficult than usual to find affordable accommodation for performers over the Fringe, thanks to new rules about renting. We discuss that, reminisce about the time Carey put Nick's head in a guillotine, muse about the role of psychology in the bucket collection after a Free Fringe show and try to decide, ultimately, whether it's all worth it.
