Scott Capurro’s Position (Scott Capurro / Gilded Balloon)

By | Published on Friday 26 August 2011

Dynamic talk show duo Scott Capurro and David Mills present a ‘car crash’ of characters; with different guests daily, they showcase some of Edinburgh’s rawer talent while cracking Susan Boyle, homosexual, and paedophile jokes. Karen Dunbar, the Ayr/Glaswegian comic, talked about her career and growing up in Scotland, while Roy Hutchins of the Zanzibar Cats performed both comic and moving spoken word. An art critic from the Scotsman was there to discuss how “corporate venues” slaughter the fringe spirit, and finally, Barb Jungr was joined on stage by Simon Wallace on the keys in an absolutely captivating cover of Bob Dylan. These two aren’t afraid to bring controversy on stage, with all five Hitlers at the Fringe joining them next.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, 3 – 29 Aug, 4.15pm (5.15pm), £9.00 – £11.00, fpp148.
