Edinburgh is a tough, hard, stressful month, but when everything goes right and people like the show it's a joy, when the show is half full on a rainy Tuesday, it's less fun.
The Edinburgh Fringe is in full swing, flyers are being handed out, tourists are looking confused at student groups in all in one lycra bodysuits running down the Royal Mile and I am fretting about my show. All normal stuff then.
Well this is a bit odd. We're properly into the Edinburgh Fringe now and everything seems to be going a'okay. Sure I realise by saying this it'll all go tits up from here on in, but that's to be expected.
As the Edinburgh Fringe heads into its final week, it gives performers some time to reflect on the weeks that have passed - and one thing none of us can stop talking about is reviews.
