We then headed down the hill to Edinburgh Academy, where we saw Mixed Doubles, a collection of shorts about marriage written by a variety of writers. The writing and performances were both good, but it never quite hit the spot for me, partially because of the nature of miscellanies and partially because pretty much all of the scenes were object lessons in how to have a dysfunctional relationship.
After that we leapt onto a bus, crossed half of Edinburgh up to Chambers Street, walked to The Pleasance, and went to see The Boy With Tape On His Face, who was _hilarious_. Huge amounts of energy, and a fine example of someone who can make it look like they're doing random things in the middle of chaos while clearly following a well-oiled plan. I laughed until I cried, repeatedly, and he held the audience in the palm of his hand, picking people from the audience and getting them to do the strangest things, all without saying a word.
You can get a taster here, although his show this evening was funnier (and higher resolution):
