by BWW News Desk - July 14, 2014

They say 'write about what you know', so Irish comedian Michael Downey decided to write about being blue, because he's experienced all its shades. Yes Michael has been blue but who hasn't? Michael knows the despair of making tea and discovering he has no milk, he knows the sadness of sitting an exam with nothing but blind optimism in your head that you might pass. And he's suffered the darkest blue by missing an episode of Coronation Street. (more...)

ESM Enterprise Presents Erich McElroy in THE BRITISH REFERENDUM at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, 31 July - 24 AugustESM Enterprise Presents Erich McElroy in THE BRITISH REFERENDUM at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, 31 July - 24 August
by BWW News Desk - July 14, 2014

American satirist Erich McElroy returns to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this year with the final show in his British Trilogy - a brand new show inspired by the forthcoming referendum for Scottish independence. Erich's first show in 2006 - Brokeback Britain - looked at the UK from the point of view of a foreigner in a foreign land and in his 2012 show - The Brit Identity - he chronicled his transition from expat to immigrant. Now in his latest show, The British Referendum, Erich makes his case for the Union. He's proud of his British passport and when he got he didn't realize the Scottish section might get torn out. Having Scottish ancestry, becoming British made Erich feel like he had come home. However, if the referendum passes there will be a border guard to the top floor of Grandpa's house. And that's where all the whisky's kept. Could it be that this American - turned Brit - with Scottish heritage is the only comic at the Fringe to stand by the Union Jack? (more...)
