I AM ORIG in full on
'likeably puckish...amongst the most astonishing, tear-inducing sights at the Fringe' (full review see below)
entertaining through sheer energy and
chutzpah. Reminiscent of an early Vic Reeves’ Steve Bennett, Chortle
So Nathan, are you giving
away money because you're desperate for audience? Obviously not. However in last year's Edinburgh show I didn't
even break even on my flyerer. Give me a break. So why are you doing it? I'm talking about generosity in the stand-up. And in the film
it's been fascinating seeing what happens when you just give money away
in the street. Some people have been delighted, other angry. Angry?
Yep, a few times people have barked 'You should be giving it to
charity'. I've then said, 'But you could give it to charity'.
That made them more angry. Anyway, profits from the shows will be
going to charity. Profits? I'm encouraging people to be generous, that's the point. Off
the back of the idea, lots of people and companies have given me free
stuff meaning I'm doing Edinburgh for virtually nothing - I've got free
accomodation, venues, travel with Virgin Trains, poster design, poster
distribution with City Posters. I've spent a year giving money
away and actually I've ended up in profit. Eh?
Stop asking questions and come and see the shows. Anyway - who are
you? Aren't you just Nathan writing this? Yep.
