Full press release

James Veitch returns to the Edinburgh Fringe this year with his brand new show Genius Bar. Join an ex-Apple genius for misguided forays into online dating, unrequited love and what it's really like to work for Steve Jobs. Expect music, mischief and the Legend of Zelda; iCloud, Macbooks and 80's nostalgia. A clumsy tale of broken hearts and broken iPhones. A show for anyone who's ever wished they could just reboot.

The show features the voice-acting of Phil Baron who voiced the original Teddy Ruxpin in 1985 and beyond. Now, thirty years later, with some cajoling, he has taken up the mantle once more making this Teddy Ruxpin's Edinburgh Fringe debut.

James Veitch is a musician, comedian, director, writer and performer. In 2014, his first solo comedy show The Fundamental Interconnectedness of Everyone with an Internet Connection premiered at The Edinburgh Fringe to wide acclaim. It was a sell-out success for the duration of its month-long run at The Gilded Balloon. In August, Veitch will release Dot Con, his first book, based on the show and his hilarious attempts at playing internet scammers at their own game. Additional writing credits include work published by The New York Times and various short-fiction journals.
