Edinburgh Festival Fringe – The Odd Couple

Went to see The Odd Couple yesterday, mainly because Bill Bailey and Alan Davies were in it, and I’m off work on my holidays at the moment.

And it was good, a production based on the original Broadway script, and being shown at the Scottish Assembly Hall on the mound. Bill Bailey’s american accent was better than Davies, but I think Alan Davies has that kind of voice. And it was a laugh, Oscar (Bill Bailey) has all the good oneliners, that are as funny and fresh as they were originally.

And I spotted Dylan Moran buying tickets and going to the show too, I’d forgotten than fun part of the Edinburgh scene at that time of year, spotting the various people in crowds and queues.

Bill Bailey is also doing a punk tribute band thing called Beergut 100, somewhere in Bristo square.
