TW:Talks at Edinburgh Festival 2023: Sachin Kumarendran

By | Published on Wednesday 23 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 Sachin Kumarendran talking about his show ‘Deceit’.

Says the show’s blurb: “Sachin’s much-anticipated debut hour recounts how his outlandish lies – including pretending to own a mansion and attempts to pass himself off as six feet tall – got him all the way to a coveted BBC One prime-time TV slot, but also nearly led to him being marooned on a desert island”.
