It sounds like quite a few of you had a parent or grandparent say something like ‘there’s your friend!’ when I popped up on an old McIntyre Roadshow last night. I think this is rather touching. I’m going to consider starting each blog with ‘hey mate’.
I’m now two shows away from finishing Edinburgh- my fifth with a solo show and 11th in a row altogether. I have overcome, or moaned into submission, the usual problems, which this year included mild illness, more serious illness of KW, fluctuations of faith in show/talents/career, extreme sleep deprivation, having wine tipped on me, having a lot of awkward chats with drunk passers-by, up-and-down ticket sales, and trying to run really far in my spare time.
There’s a good chance I won’t do it next year, so over the next couple of days I will do a blog looking back at highlights of my strange times in this city, 2000-2010.
And still owe you a summary of my Challenges.
And quite a bit of other business. But hey. Still nine and a half years left.
