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 are picking out some of the highlights of this year’s coverage, including interviews with people who are performing there this year. Today comedian Ikechukwu Ufomadu, who is performing his show ‘Amusements’ at the Pleasance Courtyard.

“I think a lot of my material takes ordinary, mundane aspects of life and tries to twist them in ways to make them feel new and strange”, he says of the show.

“There’s also usually some kind of tango between being very formal and very silly”, he adds. “I think potential audience members should expect me to play with whatever their expectations are”.
