Newsletter #1 (March 2011)


It’s been a long time coming, and has had a few hitches but this is the first official Electric Tales newsletter. Phew! Exciting times, eh? This is the place to find out about our latest comedy storytelling events, with future editions promising packages of stories and other twinkles of joy.

Well, the first thing to let you know about is our next show, taking place on the 15th March at The Stand Comedy Club in Edinburgh. With some fabulous representatives from the world of storytelling, spoken word and comedy, it’s set to be our best show yet. Acts include…

The fabulous comedian Susan Calman, she’s the Radio 4 Newsquiz regular, who you may know from stage, tv or filling in for Fred MacAulay on Radio Scotland. You can find out more about Susan on her website:

The intriguing writer/performer/Falkirkian Alan Bissett, who’ll be dishing out some wisdom in the shape of The Moira Monologues:

Charming storyteller Gerry Durkin, with his wise words and facial hair, being all entertaining.

Comedian and all-round clever chap Andrew Learmonth is testing his mettle at Electric Tales by turning his comedy prowess to the art of the story.

If that wasn’t enough, we’ve got writer, funny chap and Writers’ Bloc regular Gavin Inglis doing something awesome. He’s funny, we’re funny… it’s going to be great.

Tickets are available from The Stand, 5 York Place, or by phoning 0131 558 7272. You can also reserve tickets by emailing us at this address: They’re £4 for grown-ups, £3 concessions. A bargain, non? The show starts at 8.30, with doors opening at 7.30pm.

If you’re after any more information about the lovely land of Electric Tales then our website is waiting, panting the corner, pining for attention. It lives at, which, you have to admit, is a jolly sensible web address for an event called Electric Tales. You can also follow us on Twitter, if you’re into that sort of thing, by looking for @electrictales.

After months of planning and eating crisps, all our online houses are set to get decorated over the next few weeks. If there’s anything you’d like to see more of (in terms of stories, information or photos of kittens), please get in touch and let us know. We promise not to bombard you with emails but once we work out how to use the thingy whatsit, these newsletters should be coming to you with bells, whistles and regularity.

In the meantime, have a very lovely week and we hope to see you at The Stand on the 15th March.

You are all beautiful robots
