freelance Technician / technical assistant for show at this year's EdFringe

at David Ephgrave (Anywhere)

I’m looking for a competent technician who’s comfortable with AV to tech the stand-up show ‘David Ephgrave: Niche' - plus assist with set-up and pack-down each day - at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe (the show runs at Just the Tonic @ The Caves at 2:40pm).


1-11, 13-18 and 20-25 August, plus 1-hour tech rehearsal on 31st July at 6:30pm.


My show is essentially stand-up, centring around a projector and screen and an on-stage and off-stage mic, with me running the majority of audio and visual cues from the stage by remote. Consequently, your main responsibilities would be assisting with the set-up / pack-down each day and operating the lights and sound levels mid-show (which will be minimal).

More than anything, I require a competent assistant, who's comfortable with AV (projector, screen, MacBook, DI etc.) and knows their way around a basic desk and lighting board...and can face the daunting task of watching my show 23 times in a row with only two days off to recover from the horror of it.

The show runs from 1st to 25th (not the 12th or 19th) at 2:40pm at Just the Tonic at The Caves. There'd also be an hour's tech rehearsal on the 31st July at 6:30pm.

You’d need to be at the venue from 2.10pm to set up and would be done by approximately 4:00pm every day.


£13.00 a day, plus a Just the Tonic pass.

Wages will be paid weekly at the end of the week by BACS.

If you think you could offer something to this role, drop me a line, informing me of any experience or relevant skills (along with a recent photograph) to
