Recorded at Edinburgh Fringe 2014, in this episode I’m chatting to three comedians who are at the festival looking for opportunities to perform. Marcus Whitfield discusses the challenges of character comedy and his favourite unusual performers. Dan Murray talks about dark humour, Lewis Schaffer and the Scottish referendum. And Charley Mantack tells us about her flying visit to the city, where she’s enjoyed some bizarre street performances, as well as her forthcoming appearance on the female-only “Bad Girls” show.
