How to produce, Perform and Write an Edinburgh Fringe Comedy Show by Ian Fox (with contributions from Ashley Frieze)
This book is dynamite and I think it’s an essential purchase to anyone going to Edinburgh or involved in comedy, as it’s a cracking read in its own right. It contains advice and stories and some of the stories are hilarious.
A lot of the advice is common sense, but it’s the sort of common sense that is easy to overlook and mostly obvious in hindsight. I daresay that this book would pay for itself many times over. It was published in 2016 and whilst there may have been a few changes since then, by far the vast majority is still very relevant.
This book is champion. It’s an extremely good buy and not only will people learn a lot, they’ll also save a lot of money.
