An hour of chat, music and sketches from different acts each day, the E4 Podcalf is more than likely to include something that tickles your fancy. Richard Melvin hosts the hour-long show, but as it’s a recording don’t expect everything to run smoothly or make linear sense as parts are recorded out of synch to be edited later. The line-up for my show was a wonderful mix of comedy types and Fringe performers, Alan Davies being the star guest. Other highlights included snippets from ‘EastEnd Cabaret’ and Adam Kay who each amused the audience with a medley of funny songs. The Podcalf is a very entertaining way to get a feel for the Fringe.
Underbelly Bristo Square, 3-26 Aug (not 6, 7, 13, 14, 20, 21), 1.00pm.
