TW:Talks at Edinburgh Festival 2023: David Ian

By | Published on Thursday 24 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. That includes recent editions of the TW:Talks podcast, which sees CMU’s Chris Cooke chatting to people performing at the Festival.

Today comedian David Ian talking about his show ‘(Just A) Perfect Gay’.

Says the show’s blurb: “Growing up gay in small town, 90s Kent, it is easy to think your sexuality is the reason you don’t fit in. But what if it’s not? Explore the expectations, struggles and disappointment of being a gay man at the same time as being not quite good enough”.
