John Lloyd: Liff of QI: Udderbelly, Bristo Square, Edinburgh, 2013
Barry Cryer’s 80th Birthday Roast: Gilded Balloon Teviot, Edinburgh, 2015
John Lloyd has produced some of the greatest modern TV comedy series and it was a privilege to hear him recall his amazing career at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2013. The man behind such hits as Not The Nine O’Clock News, Spitting Image, Blackadder and QI was an extremely entertaining raconteur combining jokes, anecdotes, stories and encounters with Rowan Atkinson, Mel Smith, Griff Rhys Jones, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, Douglas Adams and many more.
Lloyd also gave a very fitting tribute with precise comic timing to his friend and comic writer Barry Cryer at his Birthday Roast that I saw in 2015 which was very witty and had the audience in fits of laughter.
