Edinburgh Festival Q&A: Martin Urbano

By | Published on Friday 18 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 are picking out some of the highlights of this year’s coverage, including interviews with people who are performing there this year. Today comedian Martin Urbano, who is performing his show ‘Apology Comeback Tour’ at the Pleasance Courtyard.

“In my show I’m doing a satirical take on what it means for an entertainer to be making their ‘apology comeback’”, he explains. “The idea that someone had a public controversy, regarding maybe some comments or tweets, and, of course, the MeToo movement”.

“And much like with other people’s apology comebacks, that section is only a brief part of the show”, he goes on, “because it’s better to address it in a small capacity and move on like everything is fine, rather than delve into and actually analyse what happened”.
