More Festival sketches
Nicholas Parsons, 85 year old presenter of BBC Radio’s ‘Just a minute’ has a show every year at the fringe festival presenting up and coming comedians and entertainers. This comedian was only 18 years old and did a very funny turn where he told the story of his father giving him ‘the shaving talk’ which he had thought was the ‘facts of life talk’. It was ripe with confusion – his father saying things like ‘The first time you’ll probably bleed’, and ‘I’ve given your mother a rash when I haven’t done it properly’.
Moving Melvin was a great song and dance act on the show.
The Royal Mile is full of strange and wonderful sights, street entertainers and people promoting their shows in all sorts of weird and wonderful ways.
The Elephant House café has a lovely light back room with a wonderful view of the Greyfriars church yard and Edinburgh castle. This is famously the café where JK Rowling sat for hours writing Harry Potter.
