Ed and Lauren E01: Sticky tents & sugar sandwiches
By BBC Radio 1
Comedians Ed Knight and Lauren Pattison record this episode of the podcast from a sticky tent at Latitude festival, in a break from performing previews for their forthcoming Edinburgh festival shows. Ed’s never camped or been to a festival before and is struggling with a lack of grooming products and too many people performing circus tricks…Lauren isn’t helping with horror stories of festival toilets and irritating people with guitars. They’re talking about the big issues, from the perils of sweaty double sleeping bags to sugar sandwiches and previewing their top tips for Edinburgh. Over the next six episodes they’re going to be gearing up for the whirlwind that is Edinburgh Fringe festival and bringing a brutally frank and funny look at what it takes to make people laugh for a living. Expect kebab challenges, hungover walks, and soul-searching late-night chats with their comedy mates as they wonder what they’ve let themselves in for. A Whistledown production for BBC Radio 1.
