The show must go on: your comments

Author Mark Fisher outside the Fringe Office

First-night nerves and second-night wobbles

GETTING A show together and finding your way to Edinburgh is only the start of your adventure on the Fringe. Once August arrives, the serious work starts.

This chapter of The Edinburgh Fringe Survival Guide looks at the pressures you'll be under and offers loads of tips about how best to deal with them.

Among those sharing their first-hand experience are anthropologist Mark De Rond, playwright Simon Stephens, directors Alexander Wright, Jethro Compton and James Wilkes of Belt Up, venue managers Tomek Borkowy and Tommy Sheppard, actors Cora Bissett and Siobhan Redmond, singer Martyn Jacques and comedians Ed Byrne, Nick Doody and Phil Nichol
