Meet Our Cow Crew!

11th Aug 2014

Here at Underbelly we have a mooovelous cow crew who all make sure our month in Edinburgh runs smoothly. We thought we'd give you a behind the scenes peak at the people who make the magic happen, so the udder day we asked various staff members questions about their experience at the Fringe so far. Learn about whether they have returned for another year at the Fringe or if it’s their first, what shows they have enjoyed most and what they are excited to see, if they are an early bird and most enjoy Morning Gloryville or prefer a late night out partying through the decades at Hot Dub Time Machine, what their favorite Fringe hangover cure is and, of course, what their favorite cow pun is. Keep an eye out for our cow crew around Edinburgh and don't hesitate to come and say hello!
