By | Published on Monday 14 August 2023

CMU’s sister media ThreeWeeks is currently covering the Edinburgh Festival, the world’s biggest cultural event, which takes over the Scottish capital for three weeks with a packed programme of comedy, theatre, music, musicals, dance, cabaret, spoken word and a whole lot more.

Here in the CMU Daily we’ll pick out some of the highlights of this year’s coverage, including interviews with people who are performing there this year. Today Brendan Murphy who is presenting his show ‘Buffy Revamped’ as part of the Fringe.

“It’s all seven seasons of ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ in 70 hilarious minutes”, he explains. “A non-stop rollercoaster ride of a parody, taking you on a 90s/00s nostalgia-fest complete with a kick-ass indie-rock soundtrack!”

But, the whole story is “told by the bleach-blonde cockney vampire Spike. It’s the whole story from start to finish – but very much from Spike’s point of view. And don’t worry, season one – and all the other bits that Spike wasn’t around to witness – still gets the full Spike treatment”.
