Being first at the Fringe
My favourite thing about this years fringe guide is how many people tried to be at the front of it
This led to a quick Twitter conversation between Kip Hakes and I on being first at the fringe:
Me: I might go up next year with a show called “A”.
Kip: I think my show ‘0’ will be at the front.
Me: How long before someone has an untitled show?
Me: My last contribution. A show called “Pretentious”, spelt simply ” “.
Personally I think that’s a great gag, though I’m not sure it works well on paper. It also strikes me that it may be a recycled joke, as I’m pretty sure someone must have used the same idea for a perfume gag. (Gag as in joke, not as in a gag made of perfume. Gross.)
