Radio Extract

It's just another day at the Fringe, with a healthy blast of Guilt and Shame, teaming up with death by drugs, neglect and rock'n'roll. It's Subcity's third episode direct from Summerhall, and Greg, Vile and Niall welcome their guests from the worlds of comedy theatre and cool, French performance Art.

Guilt and Shame present the perfect end to a day at the Fringe: Up all Night pairs a gay virgin and a heterosexual slut in an hour of late night mayhem. Rock, which goes lighter on the comedy and heavier on the introspective gloom, takes an oral history of punk and gives it a Gallic cool. The monologue about Jim Morrison's antics at Max's Bar is not for the faint hearted.

It's Fringe time, and how better to share experiences than Auntie Myra. Her children's show might not actually be suitable for anyone under eighteen, but her adventures on the way to the studio are more than enough for Vile and Niall to learn about how life can be for an up and coming comedian on the Fringe.

From Myra, the show rushes down to London, to observe Countryboy's Struggle in a dynamic piece of hip hop theatre. The live raps that come live and direct explain things far better than Vile's questioning, and the battle between a good soul and the nasty big city is revealed in three specially recorded numbers from the show.

Finally, Simpy the Best  celebrates the magic of the darts. Jocky Wilson gives way to Jacky Wilson in a one person piece that gets the audience up at the oche.
