1. I am capable of feeling nervous.
2. flyering is harder than it looks.
3. Edinburgh is not easy to negotiate with a bag of props.
4. Folk are really nice.
I've been lucky enough to pick up some press - Chortle, the Scotsman, Weird Fringe, Three Weeks, mumsnet and Fringe Review have all given a wee mention to the show. Which is beyond brilliant - and, thanks to that sort of thing, I've had an audience for each show...so far.
The usual method of getting an audience is through flyering - it took me a wee while to realise that "would you like to come and see my show about pelvic floors?" isn't a good sales pitch. "This show makes you harder for longer" to the passing blokes worked a treat (men are generally fairly interested in that sort of thing)
"Accepting this flier is not an admission of incontinence" worked too.
I handed out 300 fliers to a bunch of folk who were not incontinent.
Some of them were lying...I hope they come to my show.
Anyhoo, if you can bear to read more of my witterings - here's the link to my new Huffington
