The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is essentially an experiment to see if, for a month, a human being can subsist on a diet of refined carbohydrates, minimal sleep and rum. I volunteered myself to test this theory back in August.
The results came back as a resounding no.
If attempted, you will contract strep throat and spend a week in bed, on antibiotics, trying not to create any saliva and stroking your own head for comfort. A word of advice, if you come to the festival try to eat a vegetable and sleep more than six hours a night.
