The latest reviewer to hit Edinburgh is FringeDog. With a promise of five stars for everyone, he’s sure to be a big hit. Pete Shaw offered him a biscuit in exchange for his thoughts on the Fringe.

i dont accept bribes because the art of edimbrugh reviewin is a pure art ! i strive to give infomative , unbiasd , comedy litrate 5 star reviews

What do you most look forward to when reviewing a show?

o boy what not to look forward to !! i have writ a poem to express my feelins:

electricity in the air !

the smell of the seats !

a ticket clutchd in a paw !

o boy o boy o boy o boy !

i going to see a show !

Do venues get extra points if they provide a bowl of fresh water and Bonios?

i dont accept bribes because the art of edimbrugh reviewin is a pure art ! i strive to give infomative , unbiasd , comedy litrate 5 star reviews , like my heros at all the good review websites . and also broadway baby . ha ha ha ! i pulling your leg !! i love broadway baby 5 stars to you .

Are you allowed to sit on the furniture?

in edimbrugh i sit under the chairs like stealth dog . a good reviewer must be like ghost , not sittin there with glowin in the dark pen , distractin exelent perfomers from their craft . is not about me , is about them !

Pedigree Chum or Cesar?

very dificult to answer as i am not sponsord by those companys and must remain unbiasd. as bill hicks famously say " if you in advertising , you bad dog !! bad bad dog !! "

Will we be seeing your paw print on Edimbrugh posters this year?

o boy !! it my biggest dream to see my 5 star reviews proudly displayed on every poster in edimbrugh !! i do hope people will put them on and it would make me very happy , because it will show that i do best reviews at the fringe !!

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this article has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
