   schema:description ""A Great, Silly Grin begins with the 1960 Edinburgh Festival, when a staggeringly inspired satirical review called Beyond the Fringe startled a public steeped in the polite, bland banality of the 1950s. From there it was a short trip to the coffee bars of London, where the appearance of a scrub yellow pamphlet calling itself Private Eye overturned the way Britons looked at their world, public events and personalities providing the raw material for this irreverent take on the news."--Jacket."@en ;
