BB Radio: Karen Koren - Gilded Balloon 30th Anniversary Interview

Thirty years ago Karen Koren formed the Gilded Balloon, one of today’s largest, most successful venues on the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. In a frank and fascinating interview, Karen takes Martin Walker through the history of the venue, from its origins in the Alternative Comedy scene to the fire at its then home in Edinburgh’s Cowgate. She also talks openly about how big money is changing the Fringe and explains what on earth she was doing with those Chippendales.Karen Koren Interview by Broadway Baby Radio on Mixcloud
