Dedication: 

The hilarious Chris Thorburn producing a ‘Now That’s What I Call Music’ parody entitled ‘Now Thats What I Call Songs Being Rewritten About Sucking Your Own Dick’. He had gone all in on the design work, recordings, and performed it onstage as if it was an advert for the CD. I had to lie on my side on the floor because I was laughing so much. Good god it was funny.

At 1am one evening last August we took over a comedy club at the Edinburgh fringe. For two and a half hours we performed a series of characters to an audience who were as enraptured as they were occasionally incredibly disgusted. You’ve not seen a crowd explode like they did whilst watching a sketch during which it transpired that unbeknownst to them, one of the performer’s mouthes had been full of baked beans for the entire thing. It was amazing. It felt like a unique and shared happening, never to be repeated, and full of creative idiots who were out on a limb. 50 audience members in stitches, 20 comedians at the back giggling like idiots whilst the beer was poured and shared. I live for evenings like this.
