On today’s show, in order of appearance:
As you read this, Doug is probably trolling around the nation’s clubs looking for grown women willing to undergo a make-under in the fourth series of BBC Three’s Snog, Marry, Avoid. He’s also filmed versions of some of the sketches from his 2009 Edinburgh solo debut, and we might even get a podcast or two out of him in the next 12 months.
Jon is appearing at the Edinburgh Festival in his own play The Wake (Bedlam Theatre, 20.00, Aug 6th-28th).
THE DOG-EARED COLLECTIVE
Contrary to their name, everything seems to be ship-shape in DEC land at the moment. The five-piece sketch troupe from Leeds are back in Edinburgh this year with a show entitled The Dog-Eared Collective's Joyride (Underbelly White Belly, 15.10, Aug 5th-29th, not 18th), which promises “morris dancing with missiles, falafel freefall, and Team GB's Olympic dragon”.
No, not the “star” of dubious celluloid delights as Girl Camp 2004 and Lesbian Fleshpots, but the loud, vibrant, frizzy-haired MC of London's Vranarama (Lowdown at the Albany, 2008-09) and Edinburgh's Comedy at The Grape. Not at Edinburgh herself this year, as far as we know – but if you’re in London, she’ll be performing at London’s Comedy Pub this coming Saturday (August 7th) and again on September 20th. Both shows start at 20.30, doors 20.00.
Jay will be showcasing some of the material from his second CD in Pretend You’re Happy (Underbelly Delhi Belly, 13.40, Aug 5th-29th, not 18th).
All acts recorded live at Sowerby & Luff's All Stars at The White Horse, Canongate.
