Well… today’s show couldn’t have been any more different to yesterday’s! We had actual audience members again today – including someone who actually listens to the podcast! He really enjoyed being there for a recording, he likes the podcast, but felt that being there live was even better (remember folks, tickets are free from any Fringe box office! The show is recorded as live 12-1pm, Monday to Friday at the Gilded Balloon at the Rose Theatre on Rose Street). We also had an amazing circus performer in, and Ewan being Ewan got him to get on his unicycle on the stage (which happens to have a rather low ceiling!) He didn’t believe Ewan at first, and thought it was just “for radio”, but Ewan is Ewan so nothing is ever what anyone expects! There is a rather nice series of photographs, though I was struggling with the camera a bit – it was taking a long time today to save photos so I kept getting “busy” notices when I was trying to take the next picture. Also, I need to work on being more aware of obstructions, having taken quite a few photographs before realising that the unicycle was obscured by the hat of one of the audience members!
Anyway, today’s guests were: Ross & Josh, The Not So Late Show; Jamie Eastlake from Eastlake Productions, who has seven shows at the Fringe, Your Ever Loving, This Is Not Culturally Significant, Vines, Harry, Jelly Beans, Hidden, Ladies Who Lunch; Sam Goodburn, Dumbstruck; Courtney Powell, Fruity And The Tweet. Courtney will be taking over from Jenny on Monday and Tuesday next week as guest host, so it was nice for the baton to be handed over live on air. As always, a selection of photos are below with the full set being on my Flickr page and available for fair use under Creative Commons. There are also a selection of photographs from Eilidh and Mairi’s interview with the cast of Prom Kween, which will appear in their podcast takeover show.
