My old school friend Sybil Faulty is in town, so after a night at the bar, we catch up over some Berocca and Baileys.
David Mills catches up with my good self at the Edinburgh Fringe, and I’m left wondering who the straight man is…
I catch up with Jared Christmas on a particularly surprising day in Edinburgh. It’s sunny, and Christmas is looking for a new style of music to listen to, with his show “Let’s Go Mofo”.
I meet up with an ex-pat Australian, two wannabe roadies, and a sketch comedy group returning to the Fringe. It’s Bad Bread!
Cabaret chat show host Mat Ricardo has a few tips for me if I want to change careers and make better use of my hat collection.
I catch up with Tom Stafe to ask about his show, and ends up talking about his pet kitten… at least I think that’s what he meant.
It’s time for ‘staring with Terry Vision, part two!’ Will Silky (Northern Comic at The Fringe) be more successful than Eva Boto (Slovenian Singer in Baku)? Let’s find out…
I catch up with Adele’s stunt double, Diane Spencer, as she promotes her show ‘Exquisite Bad Taste’ to find out how much money she’s losing this year.
I’ve arrived in Edinburgh to do some interview work at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe! Here I am outside the Gilded Balloon, with two socks holding up the video camera. How did I get here? Why am I here? And is it going to be worth it? Probably not….
For Immediate Release:
Terry Vision – The Return of a National Treasure
Edinburgh, August 2012: Years ago, he was on top of the world. He would talk to the stars every night, he would wake up the country every morning, and when you needed an unflappable light entertainment host with a twinkle in his eye, he was there.
Then Terry Vision retired.
In the years since, life has been good for the National Treasure. He’s been able to put his feet up, watch the world go by, pack his microphone away, and stop being nice to his cameraman. Until Mrs Vision needed to buy another new car. With a heavy heavy (and a light bank account), Terry is returning to the circuit, but it’s a new world of YouTube, Facebook, Hurdlepile, Twitter, and Web 2.0. Can he climb back on top of the pyramid of power?
This year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe will see Terry out and about, interviewing the up and coming talent, the stars, and the people who should have given it up years ago, showcasing them on his website (www.terryeurovision.com).
He’ll also be looking to get on stage as often as possible, ask favours from his old chums on the radio and in television to give him a little boost to his career, and do anything he can to return the Vision home to one of marital bliss… by replacing the car in the driveway.
What people are saying about Terry Vision’s return to the public eye:
“Terry is such a cutie!”, TheSwaagQueen, random person on YouTube.
“That’s fantastic, but you’re as mad as a brush”, Marty Whelan, RTE 1.
“Oh no, I’m sorry, I’m not getting involved with you again.” Ken Bruce, BBC Radio 2.
What can Terry offer you:
- A different voice to talk about The Fringe, its impact on popular culture, on Edinburgh, his recommendation, acts to watch out for, and the ability to cast his patriarchal eye over the whole festival experience.
- A unique panel guest with hundreds of years of experience, the stories to match, and the Irish gift of the gab to fill up time in the long month of August.
- A memorable interviewing experience, showcasing your talent to his legions of fans.
