A Show for Gareth Richards: Edinburgh Fringe 2023: PBH Free Fringe @ Whistlebinkies, Edinburgh, 2023
Scottish comedian Susie McCabe was the first act for the 200th online night at Always Be Comedy in October 2021 and then again in June 2022. She delivered great routines about Scottish culture and life in a conversationist style and had brilliant punchlines to her stories.
A Show for Gareth Richards was created for the 2023 Edinburgh Fringe by two comedians, Mark Simmons and Danny Ward. Comedian Gareth Richards tragically died in a car crash in April 2023 and was widely known in the comedy community. Clearly missed greatly by comedians and audiences, Simmons and Ward staged a comedy show with different daily comperes and acts every day of the Fringe which was free to attend but donations were requested at the end of each show for Richards’ family. The show I went to featured Jo Jo Sutherland as compere, Susie McCabe, Alison Spittle and Stuart Goldsmith. By the end of the Fringe, over £47,000 was raised for Richards’ family and Ward and Simmons won every award going for their superb efforts. For those seeking to donate, please click JustGiving.com. McCabe was brilliant with the delivery of a joke or routine telling stories about her amusing life.
