A new live comedy show concept is going to be launched at the Edinburgh Fringe this month – and Doctor Who writer and producer, Steven Moffatt, is set to star in the very first one.
Ad Lib is a show which explores and celebrates “spontaneous genius” in humorous conversation and Steven Moffatt will be taking part alongside comedians Fred Macauley and Frank Skinner.
The show concept was devised by Stuart Snaith (former Director of comedy, BBC Worldwide) and Dan Schreiber (Museum of Curiosity). Snaith said, “AdLib promises an hour of spontaneous and unexpected conversation from some of Britain’s sharpest, funniest and most creative brains. This initial series of five special shows, each with intriguing combinations of stars, will celebrate their talent and explore their Scottish links.”
So, will they talk about Doctor Who? Will Skinner or Macauley put themselves forward for guest spots on the show? Sounds intriguing!
The first show – featuring Moffat, of course – is at 10.30pm on Wednesday 21st August.
Box office number: 0131 623 3030
Venue: Assembly Hall, Mound Place, Edinburgh.
