Today we arrived in the City limits of Edinburgh, with tomorrow representing our final push towards the finishing line at Cargo with a top line up for the gig!
Linlithgow has been vacated, and we're now on the outskirts of the fringe. We arrive in the City of Edinburgh today, ahead of our gig at 'Cargo' tomorrow - details here!
Today we have conquered the Falkirk wheel and headed over to Linlithgow where stunning views of the Palace were there to be had!
Today was our penultimate gig at the Falkrik wheel, where a whole host of talent was on show, including Jadey Godley, Pat Burtscher, Luke Benson, & Steve Shanyaski.
Today we headed over from Auchinstarry, and were greeted in Falkirk at the Wheel, and an engineering masterclass!
A fantastic gig tonight lined up at 'The Stand' in Glasgow, feat. Janey Godley, Andre Vincent, and many more!

Today we travelled from Stoke to just south of Macclesfield, which included a 40 minute trip through the Harecastle tunnel! Check out the photos here!
Everyone spilt off from each other today for a bit of personal time (!), ate some cup cakes, and then everyone slept a little... Time in the boat is becoming tiring after nearly a month!
A wonderful (if not rainy) gig at the Star Inn, Stone tonight. Thom Tuck, Elis James, Vikki Stone, and Chris Stokes put on a hell of a show! Check out the photos here!
Rather a lot of locks today as we head up towards Stone for the gig tomorrow night in Stone, Staffs. It should be great, expecting a good crowd in these parts!
Only a small crew today with both the media guys and Alex the support driver off the boat, so it's just Joe, Andre, and the Skipper Nicola as we moored up in Atherstone.
Today the crew have hit the wall - everyone is tired but focused on getting to the next gig in Stone. Energy drinks all round!
Today we struggled with the weather, which was especially bad at Banbury lock where it was overflowing, but we managed to overcome all the challenges of the day. Check out the photos here!
No gig today - so we've been making waves from Thrupp to Banbury, and even had some time to stop off and pet some animals - mainly piglets, which Skipper Nic thoroughly enjoyed!
A great gig tonight at the Jolly Boatman in Thrupp, feat. Steve Hall, Chris Turner, Holly Walsh, Tim Fitzhigham, and Ian Smith - Check out the photos here!
We're at Osney bridge and staying here whilst the weather decides to mellow a little before heading over to Thrupp tomorrow for the gig at the Jolly Boatman.
Great gig at the Boathouse tonight - check out the photos here! Feat Simon Fielder, Lloyd Langford, Tim Fitzhigham, and Phil Nichol.
Full stop on board - the rain has been dropping in biblical proportions and we have stayed Goring, which luckily was very picturesque and friendly. Check out the photos here!
Really wet today across the UK, and with warning signs out on the water, it was a struggle to carry on - but we made it to our stop in Goring where Nicola the Skipper recorded a little song about the trip so far. See it here!
Left Henley today and headed to Reading where we were greeted by the Thames Valley Chorus who performed for us on the banks of the river. Pictures here!
Gig day finally at the festival! Hal Cruttenden and Mark Dolan performed, and you can check out the pictures here! Other highlights away from our comedy barge included the fabulous Katherine Jenkins performing to another capacity crowd.
The crew enjoyed a leisurely night off at Henley Festival. The highlight of the evening was watching Sting perform his classic hits on the main stage. We were all suitably dressed in black tie attire!

Ahoy! A fantastic gig at The Bounty, with some great comedians including Reginald D Hunter, Matt Rees, and Jarred Christmas. Check out the latest videos from the gig out now!
Another fast day on the Thames, covering a whopping 18 miles. Skipped past Penton Hook lock, and settled down to a lovely Salmon dinner in Datchet.
A lovely (but fast) day, and as a result, we're further up the river moored in Kingston upon Thames, so as a reward, the crew have popped out for some food. The second gig is only two days away!
So many locks! We even drafted in the film crew to help out. We still managed to make good time though over an 18.5 mile stretch, and reached our overnight stop in Brentford lock, ready to head to Teddington tomorrow morning.
We launched this afternoon with a roaring send off, and the first gig down in Little Venice at the Canal Cafe was a great success - thanks to some wonderful performances from our talented stand up card!
The boat was being prepared at Willowtree Marina in London. Today the crew loaded supplies onto the boat and put up bunting, flags and banners.
