Comments: What happens when one of your friends becomes famous? For John Fealey it meant an opportunity to play. The chance to work with his friends Eddie Izzard, Alex Danridge, Vince Henderson and Sophie Aldred at the 2001 Edinburgh Fringe Festival gave John a glimpse into the true nature of Fame. The beautiful thing about improvising on the street and fully committing

to a gag is that it can lead to places you could never have imagined and take both you and your audience on an emotional journey that is filled with real drama. This episode speaks to the importance of staying in the moment, reacting honestly to what’s happening, and pure magic can be the result!
