The venue for this three man comedy sketch group was in the old Cowgate section of the city. Cowgate is also known as Little Ireland and once housed the City’s large Irish immigrant community in squalid slum conditions. James Connolly, the Irish Trade Unionist and leader of the Citizen Army during the Easter Rising was born here. The same buildings are now used as venues for the Festival. This one was a deep arched cave, the arch about 120 feet above us, the walls wet with damp and a couple of old windows bricked in. It was no more than 18 foot across and about 30 foot long Sometimes in Edinburgh, the venues are more interesting than the acts.
