working class artists
THERE'S TOO FEW WORKING CLASS PEOPLE AT THE EDINBURGH FESTIVAL.
We get fewer working class comedians, poets, musicians, actors and theatre makers on our stages. Why? Because once someone has got over the lack of confidence inherited by society, once one has got one's working class arse in gear and made something one's dead proud of, it costs money to do stuff.
This pisses me off. So when I see working class artists not being able to do stuff I get all wound up and try to figure out ways to help and this is step one.
