The Wrong Side of the Door

The Wrong Side of the Door

The Grandees present an hour long comedy sketch show with The Wrong Side of the Door, a creepy kind of comedy that is very easy to love. The trio adapt many different disguises, each as bizarre as the other, creating characters that are ultimately disturbed, unsettling and adorable all at the same time... 

Nick Hall: Live!

Nick Hall: Live!

It always seems like a good idea to take a chance on the Free Fringe, to discover your new favourite comedian before they start charging a fortune for their tickets. However, sifting through to find the real gem in amongst the Free Fringe can be very difficult, so when an established sketch maestro like Nick Hall presents his first hour long show for the PBH Free Fringe, you can relax and bask in the knowledge that you found a really good one this time... 

Fraser Millward's Masquerade!

Fraser Millward's Masquerade!

Fraser Millward presents his show Masquerade, a series of very funny sketches that he ties together immaculately from start to finish. It is a one man show, pushing Millward’s acting skills to the very limit, but also allowing him at the same time to experiment with his unique ideas of comedy... 

Lee Nelson Live

Lee Nelson Live

Lee Nelson’s show begins with a tongue-in-cheek video montage of all his achievements: Lee Nelson has his own show, hosted Live at the Apollo and competed in Let’s Dance for Comic Relief...

Chortle Student Comedy Award Final

The Chortle Student Comedy Awards is a one night only Fringe show, in which eight contestants compete for the grand prize of £2000 and the title of Best New Chortle Comedian.

The Best of Irish Comedy

The Best of Irish Comedy

You don't have to be Irish to enjoy this show, but it certainly may help to jump on board and have a few drinks before and throughout. The best of Irish is a 1 hour and 45 minute show, and with only 4 acts on the bill, be prepared for lengthy sets from each comedian... 

Afternoon Delight

Afternoon Delight

Afternoon Delight is a watered down version of a big variety show, showcasing acts that will be performing at Just the Tonic this year. It’s on very early, so it’s fine to bring the kids, although you can tell it pains some of the comedians to keep their material clean... 

Damian Clark in G'Damo!

Damian Clark in G'Damo!

Damian Clark is a lovely person: not only will he greet every person on the way in to his show, but he’s also got an awesome prop to keep us all cool (and I’m not going to give the gag away) The title of his show stems from his nickname ‘Damo’, the G’ representing the fact that he is Australian... 

Alfie Moore - Viva Alf's Vegas

Alfie Moore - Viva Alf's Vegas

Alfie Moore is definitely a talented comedian but he’s also got a very serious tale to tell at the Fringe this year. A tale of a life consumed by gambling, of devastating consequences and how he has learnt to deal with them... 

Sucker Punch

Sucker Punch

The Free Fringe is a vital part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, keeping alive the bohemian ideal that any performer can take part as long as they have a venue. The Laughing Horse is one of the better legs of the Free Fringe and Paddy Lennox has taken advantage of this with his show Sucker Punch... 

Just the Tonic Comedy Club's Midnight Show

Just the Tonic Comedy Club's Midnight Show

Late night shows throughout the Fringe are well known for being a bit raucous, a bit crazy and best enjoyed with a bevvy or two. Just the Tonic’s Midnight Show lives up to the stereotype; there is a stag party present, a lot of drunks and hecklers a-plenty...
