My Edinburgh: Greg Hemphill

The star of An Appointment With the Wicker Man shares his favourite bits of the capital

First time I came to Edinburgh was …
1990. I won So You Think You’re Funny with The Trio Bros Troupe.

I come back because …
It’s awesome fun.

Edinburgh’s unique selling point is …
A chance to try something out. To be bold and brave and stretch yourself.

The one thing that Edinburgh really needs is …
A Guantanamo Bay-style prison for the folk who get one star reviews.

My favourite place to eat is …
Yo Sushi.

I am likely to be found …
Anywhere along Rose Street in one of the fine ale houses!

I am least likely to be found …
In a kilt shop.

Appointment with the Wicker Man, Assembly Rooms, 0844 693 3008, until 26 Aug (not 20), 3.10pm, £16 (£12).
