Richard Herring’s Edinburgh Fringe Podcast

4Star ****

Podcast Godfather Richard Herring is recording is daily blog live atEdinburgh’s finest Comedy Club The Stand. Those who follow this event will know of the results of his musing on the daily events of the world and also enjoy this articulate and entertaining comedian for free via itunes.

Well if you are in theEdinburgharea here’s your chance to see it actually recorded live.

Each day Herring has a special guest and a comedian has a chance to do five minutes material to broaden their audience and raise their profile.

The one I saw recorded the special guest was comedy legend and Fringe veteran Barry Cryer. Although he is now 76 years old you wouldn’t think so. He is as sprightly as ever and his wit razor sharp.

Herring acts as the chat show host as well as adding to the proceedings and gets Cryer to recall a few anecdotes of his life as well.

The comedian on the day was Edward Aczel currently performing at the Underbelly who did himself a lot of good in his short set.

Herring and Cryer returned to close proceedings and also to give away a selection of prizes too a double bonus.
