BALLERINA
Opening song of a four-song set at the Ross Theatre on Princes Street in Edinburgh at the beginning of the Fringe Festival in 2003, the year Gary won the Perrier Best Newcomer Award. This is still very early in the month but I seem fairly slick and well- rehearsed. Also reasonably energetic considering my evening show didn’t finish till after midnight and this is early afternoon. I did two sets at this venue but this is the only one I have footage of. I don’t have any other videos of me performing that month so this is - as far as I know - the closest we’ll ever get to seeing the opening of the Polaroid Suitcase show. Except that would have been in a cramped, damp, sweaty attic at midnight and the audience would have been just a tiny bit more enthusiastic.
