James Cook in Always Be RollingThrough August 23rd, comedian James Cook performs a board game themed stand-up routine at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Titled, “Always Be Rolling,” Cook’s show is participatory. Audience members join in a live game of Hungry Hungry Hippos, where they play the hippos (gobbling marshmallows instead of marbles)!

Cook has also set up a game to be played around Edinburgh during the festival. He’s hidden iconic game pieces for people to find at 10 sites in the city. At his show, audience members get a copy of the game’s rules, as well as a badge to wear, proclaiming their participation.

James Cook performs daily at 1 PM at The Laughing Horse at Bar 50. The show is free.
