His lover has just died in a plane crash and he cannot find peace, especially so when a file belonging to his deceased shows a torrid history... 

Antonio Forcione and Sarah Jane Morris

Antonio Forcione and Sarah Jane Morris

Sarah Jane Morris and Antonio Forcione come together in a worldwide tour to promote the launch of their collaborative album Compared to What. This duo has each been compared to an impressive array of musical geniuses including Janice Joplin and Tom Waits (vocally) as well as Jimi Hendrix (instrumentally) – a comparison Antonio wears with pride... 

Get Your Own Back: Live!

Get Your Own Back: Live!

90s-kid’s television hero Dave Benson Phillips brings back his hit children’s game-show Get Your Own Back, but there’s a twist. It’s live and it’s at the Fringe. All-aboard the nostalgia train; one ticket promises you a regression to your 8-year-old self and a chance to meet the real DBP, a treat in itself... 

Pajama Men: 2 Man 3 Musketeers

Pajama Men: 2 Man 3 Musketeers

The shape-shifting comedy double act return with their live, comic existential meltdown that takes place as two comedians attempt to stage an epic, historical, romance novel in under an hour... 

White Rabbit Red Rabbit

White Rabbit Red Rabbit

Returning Fringe classic White Rabbit Red Rabbit is Nassim Soleimanpour’s experimental monologue, in which the relationship between actor, writer, audience and text is explored and questioned... 

The Oxford Revue: Hello You

The Oxford Revue: Hello You

This is a disappointing show, mainly because the Oxford Revue don’t have that many funny sketches to perform. Over the course of an hour, they spend too much of their time trying to be clever and ‘meta’, and too little time actually delivering funny jokes... 

Sally Phillips and Lily Bevan: Talking to Strangers

Sally Phillips and Lily Bevan: Talking to Strangers

A disenchanted falconer from Norfolk. A lion numerologist. Bette Midler as a telepathic, transatlantic telephone-using murderer. Sally Phillips and Lily Bevan certainly don’t go for obvious characters... 

Britney

Britney

Witty, lively and often heartwarming, Britney is a hilarious and hugely watchable production. The show intersperses narration and sketch-like scenes as it tells the true story of two friends, Charly Clive and Ellen Robertson, as they react and come to terms with Charly being diagnosed with a brain tumour... 

Save + Quit

Save + Quit

A production without any set or props is a risky move. With Fringe shows moving towards more technical ‘whiz’ year on year, bringing a show to Edinburgh that's as stripped-back as Save + Quit is a gamble... 

Promise and Promiscuity: A New Musical by Jane Austen and Penny Ashton

Promise and Promiscuity: A New Musical by Jane Austen and Penny Ashton

In the latest theatrical offering of a Jane Austen themed adaptation, this piece, which is billed as a new musical by Penny Ashton, interweaves thirty-three direct passages from Austen’s own novels, and seeks to amalgamate them in such a way so as to create a new narrative, headily replete with figures not out of place in either Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Persuasion or Northanger Abbey... 

Baby Wants Candy: The Completely Improvised Full Band Musical

Baby Wants Candy: The Completely Improvised Full Band Musical

Incredible, hilarious, infectious, amazing. These are just some of the words that were uttered by audience members as they left Wednesday evening’s production of Baby Wants Candy... 

Hurricane Michael

Hurricane Michael

Hurricane Michael is the kind of production I come to Fringe to see: a very specific, niche show, seemingly outside of my interests, that is found to be a surprisingly charming hour of entertainment... 

Tom Ballard – The World Keeps Happening

Tom Ballard – The World Keeps Happening

It can probably be agreed that there’s a lot to be unhappy about in the world at the moment. The best place to escape most of this is arguably the Edinburgh Fringe Festival - but if you’re feeling ready to take a look and a laugh at the political and social issues currently facing society, from Trump to the so-called Islamic State and all things in-between, then this is the show for you... 

Tom Binns is Ian D Montfort: How to Touch Dead People

Tom Binns is Ian D Montfort: How to Touch Dead People

Part TED talk, part psychic extravaganza, Tom Binns’ extrasensory expert Ian D Montfort is back at the festival and he’s determined to convince the sceptics the dead are among us and he can touch them... 

Verge of Strife

Verge of Strife

Emerging in a Grecian breastplate of gold, to a poetic backdrop of Wilfred Owen’s Dulce et Decorum Est the stage is seemingly set for the presentation of a man whose view of himself is certainly not lacking in confidence, bordering on adulation... 

Oh Hello!

Oh Hello!

“Charles Hawtrey 1914 -1988 – Film, Theatre, Radio and Television Actor Lived Here.” So reads the plaque where Hawtry (of Carry On fame) resided in Deal, Kent from 1968 until his death... 

Sarah Kendall: Shaken

Sarah Kendall: Shaken

Sarah Kendall’s stand-up routine has a different format to most: it’s all centred around a single tale, and it’s in the hands of someone who really knows their way around storytelling... 

Jamie MacDonald: High Vis

Jamie MacDonald: High Vis

Jamie MacDonald comes from a tradition of endearingly grumpy comics, ranting affably about all of life’s niggles, from racist taxi drivers to obnoxious ramblers. Nominally discussing how he often stands out as a blind man, the greatest enjoyment comes from his descriptions of his encounters with some gloriously horrible people... 

F*cking Men

F*cking Men

What to expect from a show called F*cking Men? Yes, it is ostensibly about sex, specifically gay sex, and as you’d expect it’s ripe for memorable one-liners like “I’m not gay, I’m in the army... 

Thrones! The Musical Parody

Thrones! The Musical Parody

‘Musical’? Check. ‘Parody’? Check. Pop culture buzzword plus whimsical piece of punctuation? Check. The title of Thrones! The Musical Parody has all the components of your typical audience-baiting, sell-out show... 

In Tents and Purposes

In Tents and Purposes

First things first. In Tents and Purposes is, for my money, one of the most intelligently and unashamedly silly shows on at the Fringe right now. The concept is that graduates Libby and Sam encounter a Fortune Teller who prophesies that one will be rich, find the love of her life and pretty much everything will be amazing, while the other will lose everything and die a dramatic death... 

Travesty

Travesty

It’s a bowl of sugar mixed with grit. Liam Williams, Edinburgh Comedy darling, has written a play and it’s a two-hand romance. Travesty charts the relationship of yuppies Ben and Anna, from their intrepid beginnings to the later, harder trials... 

The Alleycats: Gap Year!

The Alleycats: Gap Year!

This contemporary a cappella group returns with a musical this year about stories of gap year. Clearly influenced by the popular YouTube video of ‘Gap Yah’ – a comic takedown of over privileged youths on their ‘valuable experiences’ abroad – the Alleycats’ production is always lighthearted, though it entertains without the satiric energy of the original... 

Ongals Babbling Comedy

Ongals Babbling Comedy

With breathtaking magic, effortless circus and formidable beatboxing skills, Ongals will have you laughing your hat off, even if you don’t know why. A high-energy physical comedy spectacular to tickle the funny bone of every age, this wave of K-Comedy is truly side-splitting fun for all generations and a show you won’t want to miss! ***** (BroadwayBaby... 

One Man Star Wars™ Trilogy

One Man Star Wars™ Trilogy

Between Episode IV and V of Charles Ross’s One Man Star Wars Trilogy, the writer/performer spent some time polling the audience. During that, one man admitted to having never seen a single Star Wars film... 

Ross Leadbeater's Great British Songbook

Ross Leadbeater's Great British Songbook

Ross Leadbeater is an alumnus of the all-male Welsh choir Only Men Aloud!, who won the 2008 television show Last Choir Standing. He’s in Edinburgh singing songs from the Great British Songbook, but over the course of a hit-and-miss hour it proves quite difficult to pin down exactly what this Songbook is supposed to be... 

Nazeem Hussain – Legally Brown

Nazeem Hussain – Legally Brown

Standup is often at its best when it is possible to discern a great deal of the performer in their material. Nazeem Hussain’s Legally Brown is one such show, drawing on his experiences of the difficulties facing a modern Muslim living and working in Australia and the West... 

Nick Cody: Come Get Some!

Nick Cody: Come Get Some!

Come Get Some! is a rather energetic title, as titles go, but its excitement about Nick Cody is absolutely justified. Cody himself, by contrast, is insouciance incarnate: spending an hour in his company is like listening to a hilarious, Aussie mate down the pub telling some (very, very) funny stories... 

Movin' Melvin Brown Presents Me and Otis

Movin' Melvin Brown Presents Me and Otis

Multi award-winning entertainer with sold out performances, presents a sensational UK premiere. ‘The best musical experience' ****½ (RipItUp.com.au).

Simon Evans: In the Money

Simon Evans: In the Money

The show that guarantees the biggest laughs of the festival and your money back! BBC Radio Four favourite, Evans, has been immersing himself in economics for a couple of years, like a pig immersing itself in organic cleaning products, and this is the result... 

Andrew Ryan: Ruined

Andrew Ryan: Ruined

After a sell out 2015, Andrew Ryan returns to the Fringe with his all-new show, Ruined. Watch Ryan divide (but not conquer) his own life. He explores the reasons why he has a destructive personality and a habit of catastrophizing situations which leaves him feeling like he is ruining things for himself...

Susie Youssef – Check Youssef Before You Wreck Youssef

Don't miss Susie Youssef as she weaves stories, characters, sketches and occasional dance breaks into an hour of comedy about her big family, her medium-size anxiety problem and the small checklist that makes all the difference... 

Patrick Kielty: Help

Patrick Kielty: Help

Sarah Kendall: A Day in October

Having won the Comics' Choice Award at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, multi award-winning comedian Sarah Kendall is back with a hilarious new hour of storytelling. In this hour-long narrative, Sarah takes audiences back to a day in October 1990, when her best friend died for exactly 11 seconds... 

Jamie MacDonald: Oblivious

Jamie MacDonald: Oblivious

Jamie MacDonald is a gentle comic, even when brandishing his white cane as a weapon. Indeed, disdain aimed at bullies, gross but fantastic images of mumps/impetigo-ridden school dances and an absurd discussion of disability and terrorism never land with the churlishness of an Andrew Lawrence (thank goodness for that)... 

Chris Dugdale: Sleightly Dishonest

Chris Dugdale: Sleightly Dishonest

Being a show in the weird and wacky world that is the Fringe, I must admit, I had certain expectations of magician Chris Dugdale. You expect something ‘alternative’ or perhaps a trick that you’ve never seen before... 

Marriage

Marriage

Adapted from Nikolai Gogol's original play by Tom Parry – one third of Fringe favourites Pappy's – Marriage stars the cream of Edinburgh's crop: Ben Clark (also of Pappy's), Adam Riches (Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner) and sketch duo Lazy Susan, among others... 

Nick Cody – Beard Game Strong

Nick Cody – Beard Game Strong

For a show with this title, it is perhaps surprising that Nick Cody’s eye-catching facial hair is not the main feature of this performance. Packed with entertaining anecdotes from his gigs, tours and adventures across the globe, Cody’s first foray at the Fringe is set to be a roaring success... 

The Wow Wow Show! with Dan Clark

The Wow Wow Show! with Dan Clark

Star of BBC3's cult hit sitcom How Not To Live Your Life, Dan Clark, presents The Wow Wow Show!

Promise and Promiscuity: A New Musical by Jane Austen and Penny Ashton

Promise and Promiscuity: A New Musical by Jane Austen and Penny Ashton

One woman, one show, one hour ten minutes and the entire works of Jane Austen to affectionately satirise: New Zealand comedian Penny Ashton’s Promise and Promiscuity is no mean feat... 

Hannah and Hanna

Hannah and Hanna

With current situation in Calais, the rise of UKIP, depressing rhetoric used by politicians to describe migrants, this play could not be staged at a more fitting time. Despite being written in 2000 and set in 1999, it is somewhat disheartening to see how little has really changed... 

Sarah Kendall: A Day in October

Sarah Kendall: A Day in October

A Day in October centres around Kendall’s teenage years at a rough high-school in Newcastle, Australia. Kendall at this point is far from the confident comedian we see before us; she has acne all across her face, her weird dreams have even her therapist befuddled and her main objective is to remain invisible... 

Andrew Ryan: Perfectly Inadequate

Andrew Ryan: Perfectly Inadequate

According to Andrew Ryan, he is a failure. The laughs he elicits suggest otherwise, of course. Referring to his audience as 'lads', this is quintessential Irish stand-up: charming, anecdotal and fast... 

An Audience With Jimmy Savile

An Audience With Jimmy Savile

As a career move, dying was the savviest option for Jimmy Savile. Unlike American comedian Bill Cosby, who’s still alive to issue terse denials to the more than 50 women who’ve alleged that he drugged and raped them, BBC TV and radio star Savile was safely toes up before his sex crimes were revealed and investigated... 

The Pie-Eyed Piper of Hamilton

The Pie-Eyed Piper of Hamilton

Pantomime is not just for Christmas, according to Òran Mór, whose take on the genre is a wonderfully satirical look at the corridors of power. The plot is a traditional one: the mayor of City State enlists the help of a Scottish boy with a ‘magic pipe’ to rid the streets of rats... 

Two Sore Legs

Two Sore Legs

Two Sore Legs is an affecting testament to the fierceness of a mother’s love and the determination of one woman in the face of oppressive societal expectations. Circling around her own coffin on the day of her funeral, Bridget (Maria Connolly) tells us, with humour and frankness, the story of how her eight children came to be standing around her... 

John Robins: Speakeasy

John Robins: Speakeasy

Burgeoning Fringe comedy legend and self-professed borderline alcoholic John Robins indulges his audience with a startlingly self-referential hour of stand-up comedy. The Bristolian comic wastes no time in bringing the audience up to speed; his girlfriend has just gone on a month-long visit to Australia, and he’s alone for the first time in months, suddenly realising that his friends have grown up around him without him noticing... 

Festival of the Spoken Nerd: Just for Graphs

Festival of the Spoken Nerd: Just for Graphs

Peter York: How to Become a Nicer Type of Person

Peter York: How to Become a Nicer Type of Person

In which Peter York, co-inventor of the Sloane Ranger, author of Authenticity is a Con and recovering style guru, introduces his dark, edgy and deeply subversive idea of niceness. York's guide to life explains what not to wear, what not to say and what not to think... 

Little Thing, Big Thing

Little Thing, Big Thing

A nun and an ex-con find themselves on the run across Ireland, carrying two film rolls, identical in appearance but with very different sets of pictures on them. If this sounds somewhat contrived or like the set-up to a bad joke, Little Thing, Big Thing is very aware of this, and the somewhat implausible beginning allows a lovely set of character sketches and situations to pervade throughout the piece... 

RAZ by Jim Cartwright

RAZ by Jim Cartwright

It’s a deceptively simple bag of ingredients that Jim Cartwright lists in the script for his new play Raz, which has had its premiere at this year’s Festival Fringe. “Character Shane, a young man...

Baby Wants Candy: The Completely Improvised Full Band Musical

Baby Wants Candy: The Completely Improvised Full Band Musical

If you’re planning on making the trip to see Baby Wants Candy, get your title suggestions ready now!

Moby Alpha

Moby Alpha

Seattle comedy duo Charles (Chuck Armstrong and Charlie Stockman) present an imaginative, original and witty comedy, using physical theatre, sharp word play, and absurdism to launch Moby Dick into space, because, well, why not? Using the bones of Melville's story, the pair journey through culture and humanity past, present and future... 

Glenn Wool: Creator, I am but a Pawn

Glenn Wool: Creator, I am but a Pawn

Glenn Wool isn’t afraid to engage with Big Themes: feminism and the existence of God take centre stage during his set. His latest show takes the idea of the ‘little voice inside your head’ and uses it to ask questions about all aspects of life, centred around the question of whether this voice exists as a sentient being separate to one’s self – designed to trick one into making horrendous decisions – or simply just another part of the mind... 

Kafka's Ape

Kafka's Ape

Franz Kafka’s short story A Report to an Academy takes the form of an informative lecture given by an ape called Red Peter. In it, he describes to the academics his journey from Africa’s Gold Coast to the music halls of Europe, a journey that includes training to become a music hall entertainer and learning to drink alcohol... 

Thrones! The Musical

Thrones! The Musical

The opening salvo of this musical Game of Thrones pastiche has such brazen, devilish promise that for a while I entertained the possibility of being blown away by it. Dips in quality during the hour of medieval-ish frippery gradually eliminated that possibility, but this remains a mostly well-pitched and, crucially, funny show... 

Mark Steel: Who Do I Think I Am?

Mark Steel: Who Do I Think I Am?

Who Do I Think I Am? is an hour long rip roaring stand up performance. The show is centred around Mark's search for his biological parents which spans the course of 12 years or so.As a central theme it works wonders in the hands of such a capable writer and performer... 

Counting Stars by Atiha Sen Gupta

Counting Stars by Atiha Sen Gupta

“Some people would kill to have what we have,” says Sophie, describing her job as a toilet attendant in a nightclub. This seems to sum her up. Ever the optimist, seeing the good in everyone and treating her clients like ‘stars’, it’s unclear why she is with persistent pessimist, Abiodun, who describes their job as ‘slavery’... 

Fairy Tale Theatre: 18 & Over

Graham Clark Reads the Phonebook

Graham Clark Reads the Phonebook

In an era where the phone book is going extinct, Graham Clark Reads the Phonebook serves as a fitting eulogy to the tome everyone used to own. Clark will leave no stone unturned while focusing his observational lens on the subject at hand. 

Last Christmas

Last Christmas

When seeing a piece of new writing it can be best to have no expectations, to let the play lead you where it will. Often that’s easy, but with a loaded title like Last Christmas you’re bound to have at least some preconceptions... 

The Marijana Method

The Marijana Method

‘Health and Happiness Guru to the Stars’ Marijana (Gabby Best) takes her audience on a journey to find themselves. Instead, they find themselves faced with a character whose overconfidence, thinly veiled loneliness and peculiar mannerisms are anything but conducive to inner peace in this clever character comedy... 

Sara Pascoe vs History

Sara Pascoe vs History

You’d be forgiven for thinking you’d come to the wrong classroom: at times this show seems more like Sara Pascoe vs Biology, what with the fascinating nano-lectures on “sperm selection” and the evolution of human sexuality... 

Jack Dee's Help Desk

Jack Dee's Help Desk

Jack Dee's Help Desk sees Dee and a panel of surprise top comedians address problems that audience members put to them. Everyone in attendance is asked to fill out a card upon entering the show with any problem that they would like the panel to help them with... 

Bill Clinton Hercules

Bill Clinton Hercules

Bill Clinton was one of America’s glowing presidents, a shining democrat in the fashion of Jimmy Carter and even America’s beloved JFK. But after the scandal with Monica Lewinsky, Clinton’s lasting legacy has been cemented by that one infamous quote, ‘I did not have sexual relations with that woman’... 

Freak

Freak

Freak should be on the curriculum. It won't be, of course. This one-hour explosion of sex and agonising womanhood is rife with coarse language and sexual imagery so deftly conjured by writer Anna Jordan that the near-lyrical intertwining monologues become more explicit than anything we could conceivably be shown on stage... 

Jonny Lennard: Tale Blazer

Jonny Lennard: Tale Blazer

In his first full Edinburgh show, Jonny Leonard takes issue with stand-up comedians’ perennial bugbear – children’s literature.

Chris Dugdale: More Magic and Mischief

Chris Dugdale: More Magic and Mischief

If you are someone that enjoys magic in its more basic, “no frills” form, like sleight-of-hand tricks and close-up magic, you can’t go wrong with this show. Though its origins are in the more classic school of magic, there is so much more to it than first meets the eye... 

Marlon Davis: Once Upon A Grime

Marlon Davis: Once Upon A Grime

Despite his onstage charm, Marlon Davis could have done more to cover up for a set that contained predominantly weak material. There were certainly stories that provided some amusement, but a lack of subtlety and craft undermined his comic intentions... 

The Alleycats: Contemporary A Cappella

The Alleycats: Contemporary A Cappella

The Alleycats say that they love the Edinburgh Festival so much that they create an entirely new show of material just for coming here each year. This year's show combines classics and very recent pop tunes to make for a pleasant hour of listening...
