After a few minutes we were offered free tickets for a show that started in 5 mins, so pints-in-hand we proceeded to the Pleasance hut. I think we both found Bernard O'Shea a bit hit-and-miss but he did have his moments. The Pleasance, though, is a venue not to be missed, if only for its ultra relaxed atmosphere and coloured lights!

Yesterday evening, Mr DiDo and I went to see our first Fringe shows of the year. We had tickets for Welsh comedian Rhod Gilbert, whom I adore and who was on excellent form! Afterwards we had a beer in the Pleasance courtyard (see picture), a large open-air drinking area surrounded by all the different performance spaces, where performers and audiences mix freely.
