The Socks are back in town, and here's the song to prove it.
Who would have thought when the Socks recorded that video way back in 2009 that the gags about the trams ruining the look of Princes Street and not being finished yet would still be topical? And, yes, I remember tweeting that exact same observation last year too. The laying of tramlines in Edinburgh has now lasted longer than the Second World War, and they're not finished yet.
Last night's first night show was a good one, though I fear we can look forward to our 6th year without an Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination (yes there was a judge in, no it wasn't perfect), and we've started as we mean to go on. Apart from the bits that I'm still rewriting (eg Alien, which was only on its second performance and is still a bit of a jumble of ad-libs which haven't appeared in the same order twice). I can confirm the Comicbook Song was word perfect on its third ever performance. This may never happen again. Stay tuned.
