Tim Vine Interview

21 Aug

Throughout the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2013, which runs from 2 – 26 August, AUDIOGO is proud to be once again sponsoring the Pleasance Theatre, Edinburgh, as it presents a rich and diverse schedule of new comedies, dramas, children’s shows and much more besides.

To celebrate our partnership with the Pleasance, we have caught up with some of the fantastic Fringe performers currently entertaining the Edinburgh crowds in a series of exclusive interviews. 

Human pun-machine Tim Vine returns to the Fringe with “The Tim Vine Chat Show” — packed with his trademark silly jokes and the guests’ unforgettable anecdotes. It runs at the Pleasance, Edinburgh, until 26 August. Punslinger by Tim Vine is available from AudioGO.
