Just like last year, we’re going to see Spank! on Monday night because there’s no finer way to end the perfect day. If ever there was a justification for the old saying, You can’t have too much of a good thing – this is it. Our midnight show at Underbelly Cowgate (Belly Dancer) tonight is only the first of three that we have booked for this anarchically wonderful comedy melange.
Here’s what the blurb has to say: “Spank! returns for an incredible 13th year with sexy hosts, awesome comedians and the inevitable gratuitous nudity. With the most exciting comedy and cabaret talent on the Fringe, don’t miss the ‘best wild night out’ (Scotland on Sunday) at the festival! Spank! You love it! ‘This is what the festival should be about’ (List). ‘Legendary party night? Get down there right away!’ (Time Out). Previous acts include Rhys Darby, Jack Whitehall, Katherine Ryan, Josh Widdicombe, Adam Hills and many more! Ages 18+.” Our hosts, like last year are the incredible Mr James Loveridge and Miss Abigail Schamaun, and I genuinely can’t wait. It’s going to finish at Whenever o’clock so check back much later on – or maybe tomorrow morning – to find out how much spanking took place. And you can also find out about our first show for Tuesday. Are we halfway through the week yet? Not quite!
I don’t know what it is about Spank (you love it) that I enjoy so much, but all through August before we came up to Edinburgh, I’ve been jealous of the people watching it whilst I was watching it patiently at home. Tonight, as well as the fabulous Abigoliah and the sensational James, we had Ben who had an argument with Baccara, Martin Crozier who insisted I was a doctor, Conor (?) who had very slow cum, Andrea Hubert, who was so sensitive to her cancer suffering boyfriend, Lauren Pattison, the pride of Newcastle, Alex Kealy, who’s mum is fit and baby-faced Matt Green. Plus we had a real life fight – huge kudos to Paddy for taking control – and the Naked Promo was Ryan who was promoting a bar – Pollyanna’s I think. Fantastic night as always. Why weren’t you there??
