Final Poster Rob Rouse_Are You Sitting Comfortably_Fringes_06.18 (1)Hello there dear person who might stumble across this. I hope it finds you well. I’m posting this to inform you and the relevant authorities that this year I will be doing two shows at the Edinburgh festival.

Both shows will be taking place between 2-12 August. I will be performing a stand-up show at 6.30 every evening at Just the Tonic at La Belle Angelle. It’s the show I’ve been touring for the last year paired down to the hour Edinburgh format. In a change from previous years, I’m ‘experimenting’ with a different ticket model, so you can buy an advance ticket for just £5 to ensure a seat, or, chance your arm and pay what you want on the way out. Apparently it’s what all the cool kids do nowadays so I thought at 44, I should get on board.

ALSO and very excitingly, I am doing a play with my wife Helen. She’s written it and has very kindly given me a part in it. It’s a funny and moving play about relationships and genuine glorious mess that life is. It’s a great piece of writing and it’s really exciting to be doing a play with her that blurs the boundaries between life and fiction and involves me having to shout at her, which I’m slowly coming to terms with through rehearsal. (Not being a shouter in real life)

We are performing it 2-12 August at 11.15am in the Gilded Balloon Teviot house, do come along and support the show, tickets are onsale here.

That’s about it for now, I’m off to practice my shouting and hope to see you up at the festival 🙂
