Hello McRobert Arts people! How much fun, to get to talk to you before I even arrive. What a fun month I have ahead- Edinburgh, Dundee, Stirling and Kuala Lumpur! I know, shocking isn’t it? Would you believe I’m actually going to do a Burns night there- how incongruous is that? It’s obviously for ex pats( Brits who live abroad) but what an adventure. And it’s part of a 2 week trip where I then go to Singapore to do a gig lots of comedians do over there and another Burns night. I had no idea there was a Singapore St Andrews Society!

Anyway, it should be fun. A new younger comedian called Daniel Sloss is coming with me to do the gigs- you should check him out- he’s very funny and likeable and dedicated and hard working- I reckon he’s going to do very well in comedy- and he’s still only 18!

Anyway, really looking forward to coming to The Macrobert after last year’s show. I love that space, there’s something about that rounded stage that lends itself to comedy. It felt very intimate and we had great characters in the audience and that’s what makes a show for me.

So I will have to stop focusing on how to poach an egg perfectly( I’m determined to learn to cook this year- even basic stuff) and devote myself to you lot from tomorrow onwards. I’ll look through my Edinburgh Festival show script in advance, get familiar with it all again and throw it all out the window in favour of brilliant audience members, spontaneous chat and give in to truly hysterical unplanned moments- my favourite! See you all there! Craig x
