Aug 3rd-26th in the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Venue 26: Summerhall. https://festival18.summerhall.co.uk/event/our-country/ Sophocles’ Antigone acts as a provocation for this autobiographical unearthing, based on recorded conversations between the artist and her younger brother—a citizen of the still-Wild West, California’s marijuana country. Recalling a time when we were little—as siblings, as a nation, as a democratic syste ...

We met Bernie Reid whose first UK institutional art show is at Edinburgh Printmakers until 16 March. He uses surprising materials and techniques which may have been acquired as an occasional graffiti artist in Edinburgh - and at Edinburgh College of Art where he studied. 📸 Neil Hanna--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/edinburgh-reporter/…
 
Maths and stand-up is a strange formula – but one that clearly has an abundance of puns if you put your mind to it. One performer who has put their mind to it is Matt Parker. Like many performers at the Fringe, he’s Australian but lives in the United Kingdom. His early days at the Fringe saw him appear in ‘multi bill’ shows, with two other scientis…
 
Scripture calls us to be faithful in prayer (Romans 12:12) and here in James we’re reminded to also pray with faith. Prayer is a mysterious thing and we don’t always know how it works, but it is also a place where our devotion to Jesus, our reliance on the Spirit and our love in the Father finds its truest home. How can we pray more faithfully this…
 
In this episode, Dr Emily O'Reilly and alumnus Andrew Strankman from the School of Biomedical Sciences continue their excellent discussion on podcasting in education, this time going back to the basics. How do you record a podcast, and why would you want to? What tools would you need to begin podcasting, and what are some production tips worth reme…

Dominic Holland made his name at the Fringe. His first time in Edinburgh, in 1993 he won the Perrier Best Newcomer award, and was later nominated for the full Perrier. He’s made TV appearances, is a regular on the circuit… and was anointed by Bob Monkhouse as “Britain’s funniest not yet famous comedian”. He’s a stand-up with many highs (and lows). …
 
The BBC has disclosed plans to cut programmes like Classics Unwrapped, JazzNights and Pipeline all aired on BBC Scotland. Jazz musician Tommy Smith OBE has started a petition to save the programmes and to encourage the BBC to expand its jazz coverage. He explains how he got to know of the planned cuts and what he intends to do now. (Photo Derek Cla…
 
Humility is not something that the world encourages us towards, yet as Christians it is something we should seek to cultivate in our lives. We are not called to humility because we are scared of God, neither are we called to ignore the things in our own lives that are important or require attention. We are called to humility because Christ was humb…
 
In this episode, Dr Emily O'Reilly and alumnus Andrew Strankman from the School of Biomedical Sciences introduces us to the specifics of their fascinating project on educational podcasts. This project, funded by the Principal's Teaching Awards Scheme, surveyed a diverse online cohort of students at The University of Edinburgh and their responses to…
 
Popping up for a single week at the Edinburgh Fringe – something that was becoming a more popular option in recent years due to the cost and complexity of the Fringe – Rich Batsford brought his piano to the Festival. Was this a rock n roll hour of gags and wordplay? No. But it was a master at work. The Fringe is more than stand-up comedy, and our F…
 
The invitation to follow Jesus is the greatest invitation we can ever respond to, nothing will bring us more joy, nothing will see greater fruit. However, the choice to follow Jesus in our daily lives is a daily decision, not a one-time decision. As followers of Jesus, we are called to perseverance but James tells us in these verses that perseveran…
 
Lady Carol, a Fringe stalwart then and now, back on the touring circuit of cabaret and festivals and the like, returned to the Fringe in 2014 with a mandolin and ukulele in tow, Billed as a show with songs of spirited spite and tales of melancholic mischief, Lost and Found, has 30 songs, and 30 stories, and of course, you can’t get all of that into…
 
Performing regularly since 2004’s appearance on Dead Ringers, various roles in the audio adventures of Doctor Who from Big Finish, and one of the “we need a voice” actors called on by the Horrible Histories troupe, Jess Robinson has been in the business for well over a decade before making it to the Fringe. 2016 saw impressionist Jess Robinson’s th…
 
“May your word to me be fulfilled.” Advent is the longing and anticipation of Jesus’ coming. In it we align ourselves with the people of Israel in how they expected and awaited Jesus’ coming. When Mary spoke these words to the Angel in Luke 1:38, she carried the longings of her people, and the longings of her own heart as a baby in her womb. She re…
 
Carey Marx’ Fringe in 2013 is the sort of one-line elevator pitch that Hollywood loves – ‘I had to cancel my show in 2012 because I had a heart attack… let’s talk about that in 2013’. Marx was already an accomplished storyteller who had that delightful ability to keep the story on the straight and narrow but twist everything else just a little, und…
 
The giving and receiving of gifts is synonymous with the Christmas season, as well as being an activity that brings joy and delight as we bless those around us it can also be one that brings stress and expectation and even overspending and pressure. Our Christmases are fit to burst and yet the good news of great joy that we receive at Christmas is …
 
It’s Mike Bubbins’ turn to escape the archive. He’s a Welsh comic who has carved out a great little space in the scene as “the comic who does the seventies”. His fringe show forom 2017 is quintessential Bubbins, as he looks back at the seventies, what made it great, and what we can learn from it intoday’s world. He’s continued that mix of cultural …
 
Who is this God that not only dwells with us but that takes on suffering with us? Jesus is called the Suffering Servant, what does it mean that Jesus didn’t just enter into our world but that he also entered into our human experience, living a life of joy and of sorrow. The Christmas season is one that brings many emotions, joy and sorrow together …
 
This week I want to head back to 2015. That year the show was broadcast live on Leith FM community radio, as well as being a podcast, with a number of guest hosts joining me – so you’ll hear the voice of WUSB New York’s Emma Backfish – as well as our comedy just… Finland’s Ismo Leikola. For countless decades, the ‘observational comedy’ routine has …
 
God with us - a statement, not a prayer, not a plea, but a promise fulfilled. Jesus is Emmanuel, God with us and the whole expected order of everything is turned on its head with the birth of this child because gods did not come amongst their people least of all in human form, least of all in a vulnerable state. Yet, our God did. When we think abou…
 
Everyone at the Fringe is inventive, but one group is very much associated with that in my mind, Les Enfant Terribles. Formed in 2002 by James Seager and Oliver Lansley, they have brought many shows to the Fringe over the years, from psychological World War One horror, through Piratosaurs, to 2016’s vaudevillans;a classic murder caper mixed with a …
 
Few passages in Scripture are as challenging to read as this one. We sometimes stop it short and only read what is palatable to us, or we don’t read it at all, choosing blissful ignorance instead, because we find it troubling. Neither are good approaches; we must read it all. Some think this passage to be a herald for social action, others are trou…
 
An artist at heart with a long and varied list of interests, Jeff Innocent went on a stand-up comedy course in 1996 – led by alt-comedy legend Tony Allen – and he’s not stopped since then. Jeff has carved out a place in the UK stand-up scene like no other, as well as working as a writer and actor. In 2006 he brought the show Eco-worrier to the Edin…
 
The story of Jesus meeting Zaccheus centres on an invitation and a meal. The result is heart transformation, generosity, and a greater understanding of the largeness of the mission of Jesus to seek and save the lost.As Christians we must enjoy the hospitality of Jesus for ourselves – the gospel is good news! His example teaches us what true hospita…
 
‘Are you envious because I am generous?’. Such a question has the ability to cut all of us right to our core, it exposes our jealous hearts, our resentful spirits, our entitled ways, our wounds and our disappointments. The Kingdom of God, as we have learned, is unexpected, is upside-down, is not measurable by the world’s standards and yet so often …
 
2014 saw Australian comic Celia Pacquola return to Edinburgh for her fourth Fringe Show. ‘Let Me Know How It All Worked Out’ looked at the world of psychics and their promise of foretelling the future; specifically one who said she would never have children. (Spoiler… congratulations are in order, Celia and her partner had their first child earlier…
 
The Kingdom of God is costly. Jesus speaks so strongly in this passage around the theme of wealth and it can be hard for us to hear, lots of us (but not all) live fairly well-off lives and in our society there is a growing chasm between the rich and the poor. Jesus is saying something so subversive here, it would be commonplace in Judaism that rich…
 
In this episode, we hear from senior lecturers Guy Fletcher at the School of Philosophy and Marc Geddes at the School of Politics, who share good practice by examining the successes and challenges of their student-nominated courses at The University of Edinburgh. This is the third episode of our Teaching Awards series, which features reflective con…
 
The world of H P Lovecraft is one that many people have explored, both the horror of the writing and the horror of the man. In 2015 Shedload Theatre looked at the former, in an inventive show called The Statement Of Randolph Carter. The big moment in the show is the Foley work. The show is presented as a radio play, and that means lots of sound eff…
