WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Fame: our society is obsessed with it - but who will talk honestly about what it's really like? David Baddiel, in his first full Edinburgh show for fifteen years, does. From accidentally stealing the spotlight at Russell Brand's wedding, to realising Andrew Lloyd Webber cannot tell him apart from Ben Elton, David Baddiel takes aim at himself, and examines his strange relationship with the New Lad/Token Jew/Comedy rock'n'roller/Football singer-songwriter that people see him as. A "very funny and thought-provoking" (Veronica Lee, Daily Telegraph) meditation on a life lived in - and out - of fame. Iain Stirling: At Home - Iain Stirling is a BAFTA-nominated presenter, a Chortle-nominated comedian and he is home. The Edinburgh born comic completely sold-out his debut hour last year. Now, having bought a house with his girlfriend Iain explores the dichotomy of emotions you experience when making a commitment to "the one". How can a decision that comes from a place of love and commitment lead to such fear and uncertainty?
