LONDON; Thursday 8th August 2013: A new live entertainment show concept ‘Ad Lib’, which explores and celebrates ‘spontaneous genius’ will launch at the Edinburgh Festival this month.

The line-up for the first of five festival shows has been announced and will see Doctor Who supremo Steven Moffat take the stage with award-winning comic Frank Skinner on Wednesday 21st August 10.30pm at The Assembly Hall. The event will be hosted by broadcaster Fred MacAulay.

In this special Edinburgh edition of Ad Lib, the nation’s most creative minds will meet some of country’s sharpest comedians.

The Ad Lib concept has been devised by Stuart Snaith, the former Director of Comedy at BBC Worldwide, and is produced by Dan Schreiber, Museum of Curiosity.

Stuart Snaith said “AdLib promises an hour of spontaneous and unexpected conversation from some of Britain’s sharpest, funniest and most creative brains. This initial series of five special shows, each with intriguing combinations of stars, will celebrate their talent and explore their Scottish links.’

Steven Moffat is the BAFTA winning writer and producer of Doctor Who currently planning the programmes’ 50th anniversary this year. He is also the writer and co-creator of BBC phenomenon Sherlock, the hit re-imagining of Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic.

Frank Skinner is a multi-award winning writer and performer whose career spans television ( including Fantasy Football, Room 101, and Opinionated for BBC2), the stand-up circuit, literature, radio (Sony Award winner), blogs ( World Cup for The Times) and music (‘Three Lions” with David Baddiel and The Lightning Seeds).
