Three, we are Friday night, the venue is packed to the rafters with
an audience who have the best ticket in town right here. Say
hello Edinburgh! AUDIENCE: Hello Edinburgh! You are
live on BBC Three. This is going to be fun. Between now and midnight we
have an amazing line-up of very, very funny people including Russell
Kane, Roisin Conaty, Charlie Baker and Joe Wilkinson. Let's get going,
shall we? CHEERING Here is our first MC of the evening, he is a
total geezer who has kicked off a massive nationwide tour. He is
ready to go. He is well good. He is Lee Nelson! APPLAUSE Hello, hello,
hello. Spread the love! Good evening, Edinburgh Festival.
Welcome to Three at the Fringe. I is your host, Lee Nelson! APPLAUSE
Yeah, people, I am in the mood of my life! I'm in ScottyLand! I love
it here, man. It is a magical mystical place. The Scotties reckon
they have this 10,000-year-old dinosaur stake thing that lives
under a lake, the Loch Ness monster. But they have a serious drinking
problem so don't believe shit! I've had such a fun couple of days. I
had my little boy's birthday party! We are the children's entertainer.
The kids absolutely loved him. I dunno what he done, he wouldn't let
grown ups in the room. LAUGHTER man, I love my little boy so much.
I read to him every night. It's the only way I'm going to learn.
LAUGHTER As a little birthday treat, I says to him, I'll read you any
book you like, any book in the whole wide world and does you know
what he said to me? Harry Potter. Harry Potter. What book do you want
me to read in the whole world? Harry Potter. LAUGHTER It's a
bloody film! LAUGHTER What an idiot. Oh my gosh. You all right over
here? Yeah. Nice, baby. You got kids? No. Would you like some?
LAUGHTER That is how you bang girls in Scotty Land. Not wearing
ridiculous hats like that, my man. I bought him two dogs, yeah, Benson
and Hedges. Then pets - give us a cheer people with pets. CHEERING
reckon I can guess what pet people have just by looking at them and
that. I can. Let's have a look around here. Let's go for - we will
go for you. I think you would have a rabbit. Yeah? With batteries in
it! LAUGHTER You look absolutely filthy, sweetheart. Oh my gosh, you,
sweetie-pie, I haven't forgotten about you, you would have a Bird of
Paradise. Or a thrush! I is determined, yeah, to be a better
old man to my little boy, than my old man ever was to me. I still
remember my mum and dad arguing over me in court. My mum was like,
"They were arguing over me in court" but my mum was like, "You
can see him once every two week." My old man was, like, "Screw that,
I am not seeing him that often!" I'm well happy with the step-dad I
have got at the moment, he is a nice fella. He says to me, "I want
you to start treating me like I'm your real dad." I was like, yeah,
all right, then, where have you been for the last ten year? He
calls me son. I'm like particularly into that from my step-dad, he says,
"Lee, son, come and help your mother." I says, "I lovesout,
whatever, but you have to drop the son." He was all right about it. He
says "Sorry for offending here." LAUGHTER He is a Japanese legend,
man. All the boys rip out of me because he is Japanese, oh yeah,
your step-dad is Japanese, he must be into whaling. I don't know what
whaling is, man. I think it is like dogging but with fat birds.
LAUGHTER Oh, people, man, we has got a quality line-up for all of
yous tonight. Is you, you, you up for the first act of the evening?
AUDIENCE: Yes! The more love you give them the more love you get
back so go mental for Joe Wilkinson. APPLAUSE CONTINUES
I've only got three minutes, what am I doing? Hello. Nice to be here.
Look at these. These are new. How are you? You well? Right, I'm Joe.
I am going to tell you some things I have done recently and then I'm
going to leave. LAUGHTER Cool. First thing, I haven't got any
structure so there's going to be a bit, I will tell you a bit, it will
end, it will peter off. My bits don't have ends. So if you are
wondering where something is going, it's not. So first bit. You ready?
Wooh! First, weirdly, my girlfriend told me this thing that apparently
I swear in my sleep. Yeah. I don't swear that much in the day, but at
night I really let rip. She did an impression, she went, "You do this,
"Piss, shit, oh lock." Morning, I was worried about it. I thought I
will ask my mum. Talk to her about it. I said I'm a bit worried, mum.
Apparently, I swear in my sleep. "Lucky you don't sleep with kids."
Yeah. Don't want to pick up any bad habits. Like, I've got Wi-Fi in my
flat. I got quite a small flat so it goes everywhere. LAUGHTER And I
did - I thought I was being modern and I did a bit of online shopping
on the toilet, right? Oh yes. So I told my mum. "I did a bit of online
shopping on the toilet." She went, "Oh did you? Have you got a
laptop?" "Yes!" I didn't take a whole home computer into the toilet
with a hard drive and monitor on my lap! I want to buy something, but I
can't feel me legs. Oh dear. I tell you one last thing. I have heard
these two boys talking, these schoolboys, near where I live. One
of them was taking the piss out of his mate because his mate had done
that thing in school, that awful thing, where in the day had called
the teacher "dad" accidentally. I was like, "You poor bastard." That
is one of the worst things you could do. I remember doing it. I
felt sorry for him. I was this school, history lesson, I stuck my
hand up. I meant to say Mr Carr and I said "dad". Everyone started
laughing. What I remember most - just after I called the teacher dad
the kid next to me lent in and went, "You want to bum him." LAUGHTER I
don't know what goes on in your house my friend. Here is the number
for ChildLine. APPLAUSE Wilkinson! APPLAUSE Oh yes. Funny.
You knows, people, sometimes like people get the wrong idea about me.
I'm like a nice man, you know, I'm a family man. I'm still proper,
genuine absolutely gutted that me and my brother fell out and, yeah,
we don't see each other no more and that and we used to get on. But
then he started hanging out with the wrong sort of people and mixing
with the wrong crowd and his life just went down the wrong path,
innit. We tried to stop him but it was too late and it's really sad
what happened to him. Because my brother ended up going to
university. LAUGHTER Is you up for your next act of the night?
AUDIENCE: Yes! Time for the World Champion at Swingball. I see you
later. I see you later, guys. No problem. I catch up with you later.
Real good. I see you soon. There's nobody there. Say it with me
everybody swing-a-ball, the sport of champions. Invented by my father
when he hung himself. Swingball is a sport as timeless as shit. I'm
international swingball star. You guys want to learn how to play the
marvellous sport? Simple. You follow my three rules. Of which
there are four stkphr. One, the racquet. The tool of the trade. You
need to take him wherever you go. You need to eat with him, sleep
with him, drink with him and sleep with him. This one, he never leave
my side. You take. Take as hard as you can. You see, you can't! It's
because I had it grafted to the palm of my hand. That way I'm
always ready to return serve. But I know what you are thinking, sat
there with your sly and sexy smile, you are thinking Pedro, are you not
a right handed guy? LAUGHTER You would be right. This is a mistake.
A horrible mistake. I did the stitching myself whilst sat at home
looking in the mirror and who knows, but great talking to you. See you
in ten lines time. Next we need the uniform of the champion, the shirt,
the shorts and the trainer shoes. For this I recommend the lifting of
the shop. Finally, you need a sweaty band, this one is woven
together from many of the hamstrings I have torn throughout
my career, both my own and the money I have taken from the
children who I teach. Now we are ready to play. Give him a round of
applause, get on up here! APPLAUSE Let's play some swingball, my
Give yourself a twirl. You're popular in the room. Don't worry, I
will take care of that. Say it with me, swing a ball. Swing ball.
say it from the ball, let it travel up and out your mouth like two
furry testicles. Swing ball. Swing ball. Do it with the movement.
Swing. Wait for the other one to catch up and then a ball. Go.
Wait for the other one to catch up. And go. And a ball. Not bad. That
is cool. Now we're going to show you thousand play swing ball. First
you have to warm up. In the backstage area, I placed a bottle
of the finest wine, as a gift from me to you for helping me with this
demonstration. Round of applause for me. Your job is to run
backstage and grab that wine and come back here as quick as you can,
before we all count to 20. Wait for me to send you off. You think you
can do this? I will try. No. Yeah. Swing ball, do it. You have to say
it too. Swing a ball. Swing a ball. Good. So here we go. Everybody
count with me, one, two, three four, five, six, seven... Eight there no
wine. That was just to get him out of the way, so I could hit on his
Sweetheart here. Give me that music. Swing a ball. Look at you. You got
a twirl. You got a swing a boob for me. Swing a boob, swing a ball. I
love this. Keep doing it. Have you ever been... Oh senor. Your acting
is overshadowing mine. Sit down you crazy people. She just winked at me.
You think you're done for the night. No my friend, we're going to play
the game. We're going play extreme swing ball. Doubles edition. You
take the racquet and you take a pole. Now, how we play extreme
swing ball is... We swing the ball around our head and, let me exflain
rule. We come at each other like gladiators in Rome. We get to
within striking distance, you plunge the ball deep into the
forehead of your competitor and hammer it in with the racquet like
that. And we play best of three. I'm just kidding. Senor, jump up on
the stage. You hold the ball for me. We're going to swing the ball
around here, two hands. No, I swing the ball. It is like Roger Moore in
Moon Raker. If you get behind me. Hold the ball, the same as him and
let the ball do the work. That is good. We play back-to-back, OK and
how we do it. It we hit the ball and then we switch and then we hit
the ball and then we switch. The winner is the one who arrives in
accident and emergency second! But that is not all. Because the icing
on the extreme swing ball cake is we play it in total darkness. So
let's go. Hit the ball. Hit the ball. Hit the ball. Hit the ball.
Hit the ball... Senor I have embarrassed you in front of your
friend. But the thing is these guys are still swinging the balls.
Please take a seat. Thank you. senor Pedro. Legend. Yeah, you know
I do try and be good, but sometimes I am like a little bit naughty. I
popped in a disabled baby the other night. It was the wrong thing to do,
but it was 10.30 at night. I thought they went to bed early. --
I parked in a disabled bay. The warden said I'm going to give you a
ticket. You haven't got a disability. I said yes, I have got
Tourettes - you locking banker! Yes! Oh yeah. I got toed away. --
towed away. Is you up for your next act? No excuses, pop your nut and
get laughing for Tom Rosenthal. Hello, cheers mate. Hello everyone.
Are you well? Thank you so much. It is kind of you. This is my trophy.
I won this for being the funniest student. I brought this along for
confidence really. I'm going to leave it there. And what you guys
can do, is not enjoying what is going on, just look at the trophy
and realise that you're probably wrong. Good that is the system. It
is lovely being in Scotland. Economy opinions on Andy Murray? --
any opinions on Andy Murray. Quite keen. Well he doesn't impress me.
There is something unlookable about you. He is the only man whose
success is both mundane and arrogant. When he wins, he throws
his sweat bands into the crowd. No, no one wants your sweaty wrist wear,
you prick. He wins a point and goes like this and goes Andy Murray.
That is like me doing a good joke and going yes, I'm so locking funny.
When his opponents make an error, he still goes yes! Who brought him
up? The Rock? If another comedian's set is going badly and going, yes
I'm better than you by default. When he signs autographs, Rafael
Nadal is like pleasure to meet you. Andy Murray walks past people with
a pen. Just drawing on their faces. I'm Andy Murray, I have got places
to be, people to bore. You might think he is a nice guy. About this
time last year, his girlfriend left him. I thought did he claet on her?
No the reason she left is because she played Playstation 3 for seven
hours a day. Playing virtual tennis as a virtual version... Of himself.
You can imagine in the Andy Murray wing of Andy Murray mansion, Andy
Murray versus Andy Murray on the PS three, massive wide-screen,
surrounded by mirrors, the Andy Murray song, singing Andy Murray,
the girlfriend says, what, mouthful of Murray mints. Can we have six r
sex now? No, Andy Murray's playing. And put your Andy Murray mask back
on. That is all I have got time for. Thank you. The legend, yes, Tom
Rosenthal. That people is all we have got time for. Oh no! Yeah I
got a go and I got a very long night ahead of me.... With her.
Listen I have been Lee Nelson, catch my second series next week on
BBC Three. Laters Edinburgh! Fantastic, thank you Lee Nelson.
BBC Three is coming to you live and fully interactive from the
Edinburgh Festival. I lope you enjoyed Adam rifpls. We have an
extended set from him later. They are all on the web-site. -- Adams
Riches. Look who is joining me now. It is only bloody Charlie Baker.
How is your Edinburgh? I like it. You never know if they're doing a
show or if they're just drunk. have already been heckled. Just as
I opened the show. They're like your jacket is too small. But you
look nice. You're here and you have a hash tag set up for us. Hash tag
celeb spot. What we want is a famous face in a mundane place.
Like I saw John Nettles in a pound shop buying batteries. I saw him.
Have you seen anyone famous doing anything bore something It is not
that boring, David hossle Hoffe came to my -- Hasselhoff came to my
mum's house and he piste in my mum's -- piste in my mum's garden.
If you have met a celebrity in a dull situation, hash tag celeb spot.
It could turned into instant comedy. Well I will read them out. If you
have met a famous face in a mundane place let us know. The festival is
awash with celebrities. They get every where in Edinburgh, including
the toilets. I'm not the type who hang around in the men's to its,
but I know a bloke who does. Earlier Mr Joey Essex, he bumped
into our glamorous toilet attendant, Mr Tony Izzet. Are you if fellow
off that show? Yeah the only way is Essex. I'm not sure whether it is a
drama or a dookmentry. - documentary. It is like what you
call it a reality TV show. But it is confusing, you're not sure what
is real and what isn't. Most of it is real. But it is like, sometimes
the scenes are set up to do it. It is weird. Your definitely like, you
are no one's playing you now. I'm myself. And the kark Der you
play is... Joe Izzet. I can't understand, are we in the drama
now? Hmm, the drama is act innit? We're not acting? No I don't think
we're. Don't think so. That is Tony Izzet. We have leds of his toileted
a -- loads o' of his toilet adventures on the web-site. Now
over to the Baby Bubble for live musical comedy. His show has been
doing well and you are about to find out why. Performing a song 15

Helm live on BBC Three. Time to go back to the Bubble and have some
more live comedy. Our next MC was the winner of last year's Edinburgh
Comedy Award. It's the one and only Hello. How you doing? We are live
on BBC Three. I can say spunk and they can't stop me! Spunk, spunk!
Nothing they can do. We have three amazing acts in this section. Are
you excited? Some of you are struggling to recognise me. I'm not
Nick Grimshaw! This is me, I'm in the middle of a breakdown which is
why I look the aborted trip let of Jedward. Get rid of it mother, it
is not one of ours! LAUGHTER This is my weird career. The last time I
was live on the BBC Television, I was dressed as Beyonce dancing and
at the time I was single, very confusing for a man to be split up
and dressed as a woman. I will become my own woman. Imagine what
my ex must have thought? He's coping really badly! I thought
afterwards it is not going to interfere, but a lot of straight
women - I am straight by the way! This is straight sexuality in
London. I can't explain it I like Lisa Minelli and vag! I got some
weird e-mails from girls. I don't understand what I felt when I saw
you dressed as a woman. I don't want to analyse it. Please meet me
for a sloppy Gieuseppi. I was only dating girls with low self-esteem.
I have no confidence since my boyfriend left me. Get in the van,
you'll do. The hunt was on for a girl. I do like talking about my
job, but not too much. So you don't want to go out for a pizza and
speak about yourself. I went out for this one girl, she was perfect,
not overly confident. More like Natalie Portman when she was having
a bad moment in Black Swan. Get in the van! We got on. We spoke about
comedy a bit. She wasn't too impressed. I started to feel not
only in the pants but in the heart as well, I get the ET lump. It was
time to invite her back to mine. I'm always staying at hotels. It is
a creepy place to invite a girl back to. Come back to the hotel and
clean up with the tiny soaps. Want a small whisky?! It didn't matter
because it was comfortable and fun and we had so much in common and I
knew we were going to do it for the first time. Because it took me so
long to lose my virginity I have not lost the excitement of doing it
for the first time. I can't believe I'm going to do it. I still have to
go for a victory dance in the bathroom. Going to stick my willy -
don't come in - willy going in! LAUGHTER And so we are kissing,
this girl is bang up my street. She got the Japanese cartoon haircut,
stick-thin, rocking back-and-forth, I don't know what I like, I have no
confidence. I'm exaggerating! LAUGHTER We are in the hotel room,
we are snogging. Mwah, the type where we are going to do it. We are
both in our underwear. I can't remember what underwear she had on.
I was in my H&M multi-pack like these ones! The ones that look
humiliating for a man - there is nothing good about being a man and
being naked. It is nice of you girls to pretend! Now we can
consume male flesh! You don't mean a fully naked man. You mean - there
is something - I know girls are thinking nonsense, it is worse to
have the body of a woman. How dare you generalise. Think of the
changes our bodies go through, through pregnancy, it is so hard to
have the body of a woman. Girls, in this highly educated festival
audience, how many of you have ever stopped to think what it is like to
have a humiliating rod of flesh jut out from your body the moment you
find anyone vaguely attractive? Do you like me or not? That will be
telling! Oh my God, why am I being so random?! LAUGHTER That was the -
so true and personal, I'm getting the weird lips. So it is snogging.
You know when it is going to happen. We are connected on every level.
Mwah, all of a sudden the stop, that feeling where the hand goes on
the chest. Please wait, no. What? What is it? Have you got a
boyfriend? Has the spell worn off? It is like a spell wearing off in
Harry Potter! It can happen when you stop being funny. I wish I was
a good enough writer, people of Britain, live on BBC Three, to
invent what came out of this girl's mouth. Such is the weird world that
I have gone into, these are the genuine words that came out of the
girl's mouth - what is it? She said, "Please do the Beyonce dance." I
swear to God. I was so desperate to bang her, I did it! I did it,
ladies and gentlemen. I plugged my travel iPod speaker in - the creepy
one you buy on an aeroplane. I can't, I have injured my shoulder.
Shut up! I plugged it in. Have you any idea what that dance looks
like... Da-da-oh-oh-na-na! It finishes with a dramatic - like
that. I thought when I turned round she would be, the pre-sexual lafter
that can exist between lovers -- laughter that can exist between
lovers. She was so aroused by my primal dance she launched from the
bed and went at me like a sewing machine in a power surge. Drrrrr...
LAUGHTER So there is no punchlines, I'm post-modern, relax. Ladies and
gentlemen, I was spolzed to come on and warm you up -- supposed to come
on and warm you up but you were so lovely I indulged myself. Give
yourself a round of applause. APPLAUSE Give all the acts lots of
love when they come in. I will come in in between. It is like - spunk,
there is nothing you can do about it - I'm over running - spunk! It
is so liberating. It is time for the first act. Please go wild,
start with a smattering of applause, almost like we are not bothered,
building up to a working-class chunky clap, cheering like
Americans, welcome to the stage, Roisin Conaty.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Hello, Edinburgh. You well?
AUDIENCE: Yes. I wish Russell told me he didn't want to do the dance,
I would have let it go. Good. Lovely to be here. I will tell you
about myself. Three minutes. I'm 32, single, I have moved out of home!
CHEERING Thank you. When did they start charging for water? Pricks!
No idea that happened. You pay for this? What happens next? Air? I was
living with my grandmother before I moved out. She went to get her
passport photos done and she phoned me up and she was like, "I don't
look right in these photos." I was like nan, you are 85, 75 is a
distant lifetime away. She is all suited and booted to go to the
passport agency. Show me the photos. She showed me. You know when you go
into the machine you can choose the background? My nan was stood in the
middle of the Manchester United football team just sitting next to
Paul Scholes. That is the reason you look weird! You are old, like a
lot of people wouldn't notice 11 grown men stood next to them. Then
she phoned me up, "I will have to tell you something, I was at the
bingo and I spoke to my friend, she ended up in Postman Pat's van." I'm
single. Give me a cheer if you are single CHEERING Give me a cheer if
you are in a relationship. CHEERING Some of you didn't answer. I went
on a date for the first time in a while. A lovely man. He invited me
around to his house. It is quite, you know when someone tries to
seduce you too openly, it can make you feel uncomfortable. There were
candles everywhere. There's a fine line between romantic and
sacrificial. I didn't know if he was going to ask me to go to bed
with him or kill a goat. The last time anything like this happened to
me was when I was with my ex. Ladies and gentlemen, that's been
my time. It's been lovely. Enjoy the rest of your time. Good night.
APPLAUSE Roisin Conaty, ladies and gentlemen. How about that. APPLAUSE
I like it when I have a bit of admin to do. We are running over so
we are going to turn it over in between acts. Go wild, welcome to
the stage, the one, the only John Luke Robert! APPLAUSE You can call
me by my rap name - what I like to do is to insult you all to your
faces individually. It is to lower the self-confidence of the room,
make you more nervous, a bit more giggly. I don't want to hurt anyone,
though. I will do it off these cards. It is nothing to do with you.
It is what happens to be at the card. Some of them do happen to be
spookily accurate. So - if you do end up crying, can you do that
crying that can be mistaken for laughter. Shout your name at me, I
will insult you. Harry! I have been to the top of Ben Nevis and by
comparison YOU are a terrible view. LAUGHTER That is the sort of
warning shot. I don't pull punches. How do you feel? OK? Great. Kate.
People say a lot of nice things about you, Kate. They also do this
a lot. LAUGHTER Mark. They broke the mould when they made you. No,
just before they made you! I'm implying that Mark is defective.
LAUGHTER Caroline. It's like your face is in 3D, but I haven't got
the glasses on. LAUGHTER Linda. If opposites attract, you must be
going out with someone kind, attractive and continent! Sarah.
The one thing Israel and Palestine can agree on is that you are a
dooshbag! Keith. If you were a cow, sheep, chicken or any other form of
livestock, even Morrissey would Susan, your filing system is
inadequate. Dawn if you went through a high profile divorce with
Katie Price, the public sympathy would be with her. Alex, no one has
ever had a sex dream about you, without waking up and feeling
distinctly uneasy. Stuart, nobody can play the song what a wonderful
world near you, without seeming insincere. Back to the second row.
Ollie, everyone who has ever loved you, has done so sarcastically.
Danny in a dystopian vision of the future, you would remain the same.
Mike, last one, think you can take it? If Peter Parker was bitten by a
radioactive you, he wouldn't be Spiderman, he would be Dickheadman.
Thank you very much. Brilliant. John Luke Roberts. It is almost
time for our final act. I'm so excited. He is a talented guy. Did
his first Edinburgh last year. Strap n are you ready? Of course
you are. Start with a smatering of applause, like the vicar has
provided a nice flan, building up to I just pierced my baby's ear.
Welcome to the stage The Boy With # There's only you in my life # The
only thing that's right # # Mi first love, you're every breath
that I take #Y step I make And I # I want to share all my love with

have reached the end of our section. Thank you, I have been Russell Kane,
you have been a fantastic audience. Thank you and good night. Russell
Kane there and I love the The Boy With Tape On His Face. If you have
just got home from the pub, hello, where have you been? Tonight we're
live and we're interactive from the Edinburgh Fringe. In a place call
The BBC Bubble. We're on TV, online and we're live. If you liked John
Luke Roberts insulting the audience, you can generate one of your own
insults by our exclusive insult generator. If you log on and you
can receive an insult from the man himself. Or if you prefer, you can
send an insult to a friend of family member or a loved one. But
not your Nan. And we have created a an online experience with the The
Boy With Tape On His Face. Go to the web-site and you can spend
hours getting up to no good. We still need your tweets for Charlie
Baker now. He needs your tales of spotting famous faces in mundane
places. If you have bumped into Wayne Rooney in the post office
Charlie Baker might be using your story on the BBC Three stage
tonight. Just spotted by me, Neil and Christine Hamilton trying to
get into the BBC Bubble and failing. Amazing! Have you come across the
toilet attendant yet? Look who it is. It is Lee Nelson! Yeah! Hello
Scottie. A fist bump. There we go. That was a nice start to the show.
I thought you were going to kiss me. No man, we're just mates. I have
told you about 15 times. How was it for you? It's a buzz telly. You do
radio, I know you do some things, but radio is your thing. You like
it? Yeah. He has made a proper effort. Look at his little thing.
He has gone for the tailored look and blown �25 on that. I don't even
know what is wrong with my jacket know what is wrong with my jacket
tonight. I think it looks fine. stitches is on the outside and
they're meant to be on inside. Come here girlys. Do you find it...
down on my lap and then we'll talk about the first thing that comes up.
Do you find it easier to get girls now you're on the telly. Yes they
love a bit of famous. With that and my looks, I have got a TV face, you
have got a radio face. But that is what they love. Women you, where
you staying? At my home with my husband. It is a pity he won't be
enjoying himself. Just filming the whole thing. You have got a new
show starting? Yes I have got BBC Three 10.30, 25 of August. Brand-
new series. And it is going to be a proper buzz. It is got me and
Omelette. And we have got my Nan there and we have got jokes and
girls. We have got everything. It will be a proper buzz. I can't wait.
Have you been here for the whole festival? No I have been back in
London. But it is fun. Scotyland is amazing. Are you a Scottie girl.
All I knew was that SuBo girl. So she is well nice. I hope I am an
improvement. You is proper. don't you two do off and chat
properly. Thank you. Nice one Lee. Loving you back. Our toilet
attendant is next. Someone else has been man handled there and let's go
You look like that David hassle Hoffe. Only younger. Thank you. I
am actually... I Aamer Anwar David Hasselhoff. I grew up watching the
Knight Rider and you were my dad's age. Now you look like Benjamin
Button. How do you keep in shape. work out. I'm rubbish at that.
You're giving away candy. Don't eat sugar. I like it. You drink pints?
Yes. Stay away with that stuff. When cu look at yourself, do you
see an actor, o'er a singer or a lifeguard? I see myself as a dad.
Oh! What are you doing in here. have to go to the rest room.
these your daughters. Who is the better singer out of the three of
you. I is dad. We're all different. He is musical theatre and poppy.
We're all different. You're like a female Jedward. Now, as you know,
we have been broadcasting footage from here in Edinburgh at the
fringe all week on the red button. Let's have a look at one of the
highlights. A load 06 you - of you love watching him. I is the
fantastic Andrew Lawrence. Thank you. Why not if we're going to have
a ginger man on the stage, have an orange backdrop. Then no one will
notice hi hair. Who is from Edinburgh. Give me a chair. Just
the ladies at the back. I like the Edinburgh people. I think you're
hard working people. If you go north there is Dundee, Aberdeen,
Inverness, those places only exist as a constant reminder to people of
Edinburgh, if you don't keep working hard and making money, that
is where you could ends up. It is nice to, I have having a nice time.
I took a day off and drove up the coast. I stopped off at the
services on the way to use the men's toilets was out of order. The
ladies were out and I had to use the disabled. I went in, did what I
needed to do, came out and the man at the station was there, he said,
those toilets are for disabled customers only. I said I am disable.
He said what is your disability. I said I have poor hand/high co-
ordination. It is not a disability. Tell me after you have seen how
much piddle I have left on the floor. I am treating it as a hol
day, although I don't like British holidays, when I was 13 I went to
Weymouth and walked along the beach and stepped on syringe. Now say
what you like about heroin, when your a teenager on holiday with
your parents, its make things better actually. I don't remember
much about that holiday. There was a man walking up and down the beach
selling ice-creams. He has no top on and an abnormal number of
nipples. I don't want to buy products from a man with five
nipples. I like festivals. I'm a bit old for them. Especial think
music festivals. I -- especially the music festivals. I can't go it
is an abomb daigs. What is not to like? I think cack-smeared toilets,
punching all who venture, brain- crippling stench of hell, a fear
some fat drunk will collapse on top of your tents and crash you into a
sack of shattered bones and you have to crawl through mud to the
ambulance, who are too busy pumping the stomachs of teenagers to attend
to my internal bleeding and Sunday you collapse in the back of
someone's 15-year-old car, consider yourself lucky to be alive as you
spend what seemed like a ten hour motorway journey trying to claw a
pinch wrist band off your arm. Apart from that they a barrel of
laughs. Sign me up immediately! has been a privilege tonight. Thank

We all right? Yes, thank you. Thank you. Calm down, I might be rubbish.
We all right? Having a lovely time? AUDIENCE: Yes. We are live on BBC
Three. Shout something. Woo-hooh! You pleased with your choice? Good.
Enough. You are live on BBC Three. Hello, I'm Charlie Baker. Enough
now. It is not an auction. I'm Charlie Baker. I'm waiting for Jack
Black to die. LAUGHTER He looks like him! It's funny looking like
someone famous. When ever I meet someone famous I get nervous. Who
have you met? No-one. No-one to me live on BBC Three. Thank you very
much(!) I will let you know, before you said no-one, I asked this last
night and someone said, "Jet from Gladiators." Have you met anyone
famous? The Wenger Boys. I like it when you meet rappers. I met Kanye
West. I always think he sounds like a service station. Where did you
get that pasty? Kanye West. 1.49 for diesel. The world's biggest
rapper, Jay-Z. Wooh! And I got quite nervous meeting Jay-Z. When
ever I meet someone super-famous I get a voice that goes, "There's
Jay-Z there. Jay-Z, speak to Jay-Z. Say something to Jay-Z. Speak to
him. Say something to Jay-Z. Get him out of his friendship ring." I
have to say something to Jay-Z. So I will say this, "Jay-Z..." I went
for a high-five, ladies and gentlemen, a high-five. And I stood
there thinking, you look a right knob now, you look a penis. He did,
ladies and gentlemen, bang on the high-five from Jay-Z. Yes,
everybody! Come here. Come here. Woah! That was a confident high-
five. You feeling good now about yourself? In six degrees of
separation way, you have touched a hand that's touched a hand that has
touched Beyonce's knockers! Pretty good - a round of applause.
APPLAUSE Have another go. Fuck off, she is not a slag. LAUGHTER You
liked it, you should have put a ring on it! There we are, ladies
and gentlemen, we are going to bring our next act out. They have
had a brilliant festival. They are excellent. Please welcome to stage,
the magnificent Frisky and Mannish. APPLAUSE Hi, there. Now, as pop
academics, we could not let this event past without making reference
to the tragic end of one of the greatest acts in pop history.
course, this is the 79 month anniversary of the disbanding of
Busted. # One day
# When I came home # At lunch time
# I heard # Went out to the backyard
# Stood there # He told me he made a Time Machine
like one in a film I had seen # Yeah
# I said I've been to the year 3,000
# Not much has changed... # But the rains came and swept the
land and the animals rose up # Made slaves of the men and
everything was death # And great, great, great-
granddaughter... # Didn't make it. #
Thank you. We don't have much time so we are going to finish by
looking at the work of an artist who we both feel will come to be
seen as one of the most important female singer-songwriters in the
history of music. # Out on the windy moors
# You had a temper # Like my jealousy
# How could you leave me # When I needed to
# Possess you # I hated you
# I loved you too # Bad dreams in the night
# Told me I was going to lose the fight
# Leave her # Wutherg
# Heathcliff # Kathy, I've come home
# Let me in at your window # Oh, Heathcliff
# It's me # Oh Kathy
# I've come home # Let me in at your window
# Oh, oh # My fingertips are holding on to
# The cracks in the window pane # And I know that I should let go
but I can't # And every time we find
# I know it's not right # Every time you are upset
# I know I should forget but I can't
# Ooh # Let me have it
# Let me grab your soul away # You
# Let me have it # Let me grab your soul away
# You know # It's me
# Kathy. # I just want your kiss boy.
# Kiss boy # I just want your kiss
# I just want your kiss boy # Heathcliff
# He's running up that hill # I just want your kiss boy
# The hounds of love are hunted # I want your soul boy
# I just want your soul # Oooh, ooh
# Woah, aah # Catherine is a victim
# Catherine sits in her room playing killer, killer beats. #
That was Frisky and Mannish. Hooray for them. Still clapping. They are
still clapping. I'm out here in the guts of the Edinburgh Fringe
festival tent. She is not clapping there. Just clap. Very good. Man in
hat indoors, can we see him? Well done, Sir. Having a pint, look at
this man in his leather jacket. Well done, Sir. Very good. I'm -
hello. I'm good, thank you. What is your name? Anni. Have you ever met
anyone famous? I met Steps on Live and Kicking. It doesn't get any
better(!) that is marvellous. What is the best show you have seen this
summer? Wedding Band by Charlie Baker at 2.45. Very good. How
marvellous. Sounds excellent. What is the best show you have seen this
summer? I haven't seen any yet so this one. Yes, what a glowing
review that is(!) LAUGHTER Excellent. We are going to bring
out our next act. APPLAUSE Please welcome all the way from Australia,
Do you like bread? Yeah. Do you like fully get into it? Not fully.
I know you are talking about bread. You know bread? I don't know bread.
I like toast. I like toast. I fully get into bread. I like bread when
I... What? What the fuck are you talking about? I know you are
talking about bread! What is going on with this disco music, man?
it is for the bread. What do you mean it's for bread? Like, when you
putting on bread shoes. You should have said that! Bread shoes. Oh
yeah, this one is going out to all the ladies out there who like to
Bring it on back. Come on, throw it at me! Come on bring it all back.
There's a famine! You're looking at me like, fuck, it's the guy from
Guess Who! If you want to hire me out, I don't just do bread, I also
do soup. I once wiped my arse with a slice of bread. I ran out and had
to use the crust, so my finger wouldn't tear through. Don't use
APPLAUSE. Sam Symonds everyone. There is loads of bread on the
floor. There is people stafbing. This is like North London last week.
-- people starving. She is going, she is in the production of Bugsy
Malone. She tap dancers as well. See that, Koch watcher, got him, 1-
0, cock watching bastard. Can't take his eyes off it. We have been
asking people to tweet in. Some people are faxed in. Someone did a
pager. And people have been tweeting in with famous people they
have seen in mundane places doing Munn Tain things. My favourite is
steps on Live and Kicking. Well done. -- mundane. Is the bread
gone? It didn't deserve that much of a round of applause A few years
ago, from stof e Sophie, I saw Peter String fellow buying a
casserole dish at a market. Isn't that lovely. That is a lovely one.
Some people going what. He doesn't care. He is working on the sound.
Seen that mate? No. We will try another one. He is not look. I met
big Mo from East Ender in a yellow bikini. That put a few people off.
He is laughing at that. The other week I saw Jason Orange just
walking past my bus. Everyone hated that one. There we're. We're going
to bring on our headline act, are we excited about David O'Doherty?
Yes so here he comes, the Oh someone's got the party machine!
Do you have the time, Sir, do you have the time? It's party time.
Stop looking at your watch. I will accept David O'Doherty time. It is
going to be like a party in my house. In many ways it won't be
like a party in my house, as I will be doing most of the partying, you
will just be sitting receiving the party that. Sounds sleazy when you
put it like that, considering you paid to receive the party. There's
a party starting right now # Party starting right now # Time to get
excited # The neighbour on this side have gone away and the
neighbours are old and pretty much deaf # Party, party, party! People
standing in the kitchen, they're talking about the King's Speech #
Pretty good film is the general consensus # There's going to be
lots of ladies and men # There is some cheese in the kitchen # There
will be streamers flying through the air # Someone will go home
wearing someone else's coat. It is going to be fuck mayhem. # Invite
your friends, but not friends of friend, # That would be too many
and my party needs some ground rules # You don't want a situation
like at Rob's party last year # Where a CD went missing # Someone
broke a Claire and someone tried to fill his dog with helium # Tried to
stim hill on the ceiling # But he didn't float up, # Just became
violently ill # Party party party # Somebody's drinking through a straw
from a coconut # We're going to party on through to the break of
Dan # Or until I come down in my dressing gown and say that's it
everyone fuck off # Party over # I'm going to bed # Can you please
take your coats off my bed? # Party, party, ore was someone doing it in
the coats. It is that sort of party. Thank you. Wow. I am, thank you, I
am David O'Doherty, I Tam creator of Wangury. It is like November,
but instead of growing a moustache, you go the full way and leave your
cock and bulls out for all of January. -- balls out for all of
January. It is a pleasure to close this show. I would like to finish
with a love song # Sometimes I wonder how my life would be if we
had never met at hull # But nobody there in the evening # To hold # To
call # Going to bed feeling lonely # But not knowing lonely for who #
This I how my life might be without you # Or... # I might be banging,
banging in the morning, barning in the night # But please queue up sh
I have only got one Wang, but you wait your turn we can have some
sweet banging # In the club with my click, I have an idea, let's start
banging, let the banging begin, it is not race it just bang. Obviously
that an immature view of single life. There is more to it than bang
will is also # Humping, after the show when the party pumping # All
right ladies the place is small and we have to hump in the hall # It is
around around the back # Banging, banging, humping, this is an
alternative view of how things might be without all of you! Thank
you. Lady and gentlemen. Are you coming off or staying on. You have
been marvellous. I think you have got to go. It is a live show. He's
gone. There is bread. David O'Doherty. Bread. There he goes.
There is the bread for you. We have come to the end of the show. It is
the end of the show. I will read out everyone's who has been on. Lee
Nelson, Joe Wilkinson, Adam Riches, Tom Rosenthal, Roisin Conaty # The

hell do you do this for a months? We're clean living. It is not cool
to say. We don't drink. That is not actually true. I saw you in the bar
Shush. I was having physio today. This is brutal. Like comedy at the
rough edge. It is so good. The first time it has been on BBC Three
live. Russell Kane hi. Hello. was it for you? Good my cold and
flu medication held up. I have been breaded. A string of snot went down
as I was talking about my sex life. I was advertising that I was single
and I snotted. Do you wants some of this lady. Or bread. There is
plenty of bread. Can I have some some. We're thinking we should do
this every year. This is great. Why aren't we doingy year. We should
celebrate the fringe. Comedians used to be geeks, now we're like
rock stars. A lot of people think that the festival is a bit too arty
farty. This proves that there is something for everyone. Yeah, they
proved I'm sweary moron. Are you having a lovely time. It is like a
dinosaur wrapped in a space ship w a swords on fire. The Boy With Tape
On His Face, are you having a nice On His Face, are you having a nice
time? Less my favourite. Listen, thank you for being on the show. I
