Lynn Ruth Miller: Get a Grip

  • Cabaret (60 minutes)
Lynn Ruth Miller: Get a Grip. Lynn Ruth Miller

Fear is the ultimate fantasy. Lynn Ruth Miller is 81 years old. She's lived a lot and nearly died a few times too. She's faced massive fears and fought a churning tummy and grinding teeth. This celebrated 2013 TO&ST award winner, and 2014 Dave's Comedy Festival Liberty Award winner, guides us through eight decades of triumphs and failures, wit and wisdom and the faith in the impossible that kept her from jumping. 'Miller cranks up the limelight and turns on the mirrorball' (Guardian).

When is a cunning stunt not cunning?

One agent/promoter was telling me he had a stunt to publicise one of his acts which he reckoned was going to put all the traffic in Edinburgh into gridlock and he was trying to persuade me this would be worthy of an increasingly prestigious Malcolm Hardee Cunning Stunt Award nomination. But this would be more likely to get the act thrown out of their venue, him prosecuted and the show loathed by locals rather than an award nomination.

"If the street is clean, your show is a failure."

Yesterday morning started with me sitting in Fringe Central and 82-year-old Lynn Ruth Miller coming up to me.

The unavoidable Lewis Schaffer & the African President

Yesterday, I was talking to critic Kate Copstick and I think we came to the conclusion that, this year at the Edinburgh Fringe, there is no one 'hot' act whom everyone is talking about.

Fringe 2015: the old ones are the best

The Edinburgh Fringe is often seen as the preserve of young, up-and-coming acts. But Holly Williams meets some of the performers who are daring to defy that trend.

The voices of experience

They might not make all those clickbait lists of "not to be missed" performers, but one of the joys of the Fringe is seeing the old hands who have seen it, done it, and keep doing it for the love of the game.
