Edinburgh Fringe visit 2
Today Butcher Boy and his flatmate Rob (who was also a former colleague of us both) and I went to Edinburgh to once again take in some comedy. This time we saw 3 shows, all of which were recommended or chosen by butcher Boy himself.
Well what can I say, but he scored a 3/3 in terms of good choices.
Special mention to the St Georges Med School Revue for their irreverent and politically incorrect sketch show of jokes, gags characters and such like. Who knew that Austrian incest, imprisonment and rape could be so funny, or that Australian diagnostics was so unusual. They are only on until Monday, but if you get a chance I can only recommend that you go - Sweet Grassmarket in the Apex City Hotel. There is swearing, sexual content and deeply politically incorrect jokes, but they are hilarious. Well done to them for bringing it on tour!
