- Chortle: Why free is the future of the Fringe
Full press release
Former Perrier nominee and award-winning comedian Luke Toulson (Russell Howard's Good News) brings his brand new show about fatherhood, UKIP and the most racist production of Miss Saigon ever staged, to the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe.
I recently found myself watching what I firmly believe to be the most racist production of Miss Saigon ever staged. This was awkward for a number of reasons, but mainly because my kids were in it.
At the same time as this Hampshire Youth Theatre PC car crash, UKIP were rapidly making Hampshire their new intolerant heartland, thanks in part to Nigel Farage's "straight-talking" being preferred to David Cameron's "speaking as a Dad".
But what should a Dad say? (Especially when his kids are dressed as Vietnamese prostitutes.) Why is being anti-immigration and opposed to gay marriage suddenly an acceptable political position? And is it ever okay to leave at the interval of a show your kids are in?
