Opinion: Why I'm Playing The Free Festival In Edinburgh by Janey Godley

So I'm saying yes to Free Festival, don't see why I shouldn't. The Free Festival has become the fringe to the Fringe. I am looking forward to the experience. I have done the BIG venues for years and although I love my boys at the Underbelly and all the gang at Pleasance and Gilded etc... I am looking forward to striking out. There is a snobbery about the Free Festival with suggestions that it is there for 'people who cant get into the big professional venues'.

Opinion: Janey Godley on Swearing

Picture the scene, I walk out of a gig at Edinburgh Fringe, it's raining and I am laughing and saying goodbye to some folks and I get straight into a cab as someone shouts "Loved the show Janey" and the taxi driver asks "Are you a comedian?" I reply quite proudly "Yes I am" and I forgot in my elation that I usually don't speak about comedy in taxis as I know what he is going to say next...

I forgot and before I could think another thing I heard him say the inevitable "Do you swear?".
