Edinburgh Festival Day Five

A slightly belated record of my last day in Edinburgh this year. I lined up a strong evening of comedy for myself, starting with Jamie Kilstein, a young American comic doing his first full Fringe, after coming over for a few days last year.

Scott Capurro and Zoe Lyons

July 17: Scott Capurro and Zoe Lyons Scott Capurro goes Deeper. Scott is one of those acts that tends to polarise an audience, pushing the boundaries of some audience members to breaking point and beyond.
