- The venue - what sort of venue is it?

Citrus Club is a small club, and the performance takes place in the back room, with a bar in the front room. The stage is raised and is quite big, with a curtained off area where performers can prepare and get changed. The audience are about 2-3 feet below the stage. There are a few bars at the front of the stage which can affect some views from the audience. The lighting is good, but the venue overall is dark.

- The performance area

Raised, large stage (for a fringe venue) plenty of space for 3 or 4 people to be up and acting

- The team of staff at the venue

Brian was great, really nice guy

- How you advertised your show

Posters at the venue, and we flyer-ed both the grassmarket and Lothian road for about 2 hours before the show. We got tons of random punters in every day, mostly from Lothian road and surrounding areas, but some from grassmarket too

- How your shows went in terms of audience numbers

Brilliant. We had double figures every day, and on our best day the club was packed. Most of these came from flyer-ing.

- Your show itself - what worked, what didn't work, what needs to change

The show itself needed tweaking, what you get with a flyer-ed audience is not necessarily a comedy audience, so you have to make them laugh early. The venue is good, we would have preferred if it opened a little earlier and served other things than alcoholic drinks (coffee, tea etc). 14:45 not many people want a drink....

- Buckets

Not great. Between £15-20 per performance. We weren't in it for the money though

- Technical set-up at the venue

Brilliant. The venue is used to putting bands on. Easy to connect an iPod and sound quality was excellent.

- Admin & Communication process (between Free Fringe, Captains, Venues and you)

No problems

- Any other learning points for anyone involved

Flyer, flyer, flyer! You will get punters. Flyer at the venue as people walk by, many do actually come in!
