You can get me on facebook at

I also have a Twitter account, FreeFringe, but seldom use it. I don't understand Twitter.

The Free Fringe is at and all applications should go through that site

I don't do many gigs nowadays, but will take bookings for appropriate ones, if anybody remembers when I was funny. Email me here if you need to.

Freeing the Edinburgh Fringe

My book Freeing the Edinburgh Fringe is now out and can be obtained from me for 7.99 plus (alas) 3 UK p&p. Working on bookshop distribution. If you transfer the price to my account 22594884 60-04-24 and email me with delivery address, I'll send you one. I can also accept cards, but what I can't do is put up a secure form on this web site for transmission of your card data. Well, I can. but it would cost 25 per month and it's not worth it.

The book is 406pp and quite handsome, really. It's my story of starting and running the Free Fringe, with all the problems and stumbling blocks along the way. A couple of people have been amused by it. It's a personal narrative, but truthful, although some people might remember things differently.

Free Fringe extra

This now works for 2018

Until the Free Fringe web listings are up, I'll be posting here the Free Fringe programme so far.

This is in simple spreadsheet format, and you can download it. It's sorted by venue, but you can easily sort it by time yourself once you've downloaded it.
