ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2007
The people's King of the Fringe puts the unconventional on the agenda.
Simon Munnery, Chairman Of The Bored and six times Boothby Graffoe
Award Winner, presides over a year's worth of musings, jokes,
anecdotes and poems in his much anticipated annual Edinburgh jaunt.
Coming fresh from Glastonbury and a run at the Soho Theatre, the
Annual General Meeting returns to its spiritual home at The Stand
Fun will be had and laughter too (not guaranteed); weeping is not
permitted, other than backstage. Topical references will be
strenuously avoided, blatant lies bellowed and the truth whispered in
a plaintive voice indistinguishable from a kitten's mewl.
The agenda is as follows:
• Almost musical duo Mac & Mun will entertain on entry and
provoke mass exodus at the close, such is the power and versatility of
• Artist, lover, drummer and Edinburgh's drunkest DJ Comrade Mac
will be permitted to play one record during the four minute interval.
During this time, the audience will be invited to submit motions on
scraps of paper. A mysterious selection process will ensue in which
seven motions shall be selected for discussion and the rest consigned
to compost without further ado.
• Doctor Professor Sir Maurice Chutney will regale the mob with
his lecture on Women's Studies, mit diagrams aplenty and controversy
• Mr Alan Parker Urban Warrior will undoubtedly pop in and
expound on his views.
• Ozzie love poet G'day McClancy shall unleash his latest.
Last year, a nameless reviewer-timid parents- described the AGM as
‘the closest comedy gets to modern art'. This year, in an attempt to
achieve the impossible feat of becoming modern art, the AGM will
feature slightly less jokes and a little more painting. But even if
the impossible is achieved and finally the AGM is recognised as art,
what category of art would it be in? Shit art; that is, art that is
perilously near comedy.
If you've been in AGM attendance before, you don't need us to convince
you to return. If you're a first-timer, don't miss your chance to help
the harmonica-playing, occasionally bucket-headed Fringe Institution
Simon Munnery toast his umpteenth year of Edinburgh-based tomfoolery.
A man who surely has his fingers on the trophy for ‘Most Consecutive
Edinburgh Fringe Appearances', Simon Munnery's yearly order of
business is the very definition of a Fringe show- wilfully eccentric,
utterly unpredictable and uninhibitedly hysterical.
'One of the most original and talented comedians in the country'
'The event of the year… the most rewarding confection in live comedy'
