As a further result of this misguided publicity stunt by Fosters, I have now nominated Stewart Lee for this year's Malcolm Hardee Cunning Stunt Award for best publicity stunt at the Fringe - in this case, for publicising a non-existent show not playing the Edinburgh Fringe. I feel Malcolm would have approved both of Stewart's original complaint and the nomination.
Frankly, so far, it looks like a pretty slim year for publicity stunts and currently Stewart stands a pretty good chance of winning.
The Malcolm Hardee Awards this year are going to be presented on Friday 27th August during Nik Coppin's nightly show Shaggers, part of the Laughing Horse Free Festival at the Three Sisters in Cowgate.
No thanks, don't show this popup again.
