It is always good to see Joe and Trish in Edinburgh, but this year it was especially nice, because, of course, I could see my nephew too. I was able to see Joe performing on the High Street and in the Grassmarket. His show really is excellent now and was very well received by the crowds he managed to pull together to watch him. A very clever ruse at the end of his set was to introduce Jack and explain that the crowd’s donations fed Joe, Trish and a small baby. Just as long as he doesn’t start juggling his son, everything will be fine.
Oh, and of course, dear reader, the fringe to which I refer belongs to Jack… I did see some shows (as well as visiting a number of corporate supporters for work), but they weren’t as entertaining as my nephew.
