Daniel Downie: 2 O'Clock Gun

Daniel Downie: 2 O'Clock Gun

Daniel Downie takes an irreverent look at Edinburgh’s history that’s more hysterical than historical. Why do they fire a massive cannon every day at lunchtime?

Daniel Downie: 2 O'Clock Gun

Why do they fire a massive canon every day at lunchtime? How many pubs are named after brutal murderers? How did the Stone of Destiny end up back where it never belonged in the first place?

Raymond Mearns Is Growing Old Disgracefully

Raymond Mearns Is Growing Old Disgracefully

They say 50 is the new 30, if that's true then I am only 27. I am more Peter Pan-demonium than Peter Pan, I am not and never will be a shining example of how to live your life, but it’s not my fault! I have an incurable affliction, it's terminal – I suffer from the Human Condition...

Chris Griffin and Ross Leslie Present Two Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

Ross Leslie and Chris Griffin are joined by Gareth Mutch for an hour of solid observational stand-up as part of the Free Fringe at the Beehive Inn. The show’s title, Two Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest, was a bit of a misrepresentation given that the subject matter dealt with by each of the three comedians didn’t stray too far from everyday matters – sex, relationships, looking like a character out of Middle-Earth etc...

Anything's Better Than These C**ts

Jojo Sutherland - In Conversation

Jojo Sutherland - In Conversation

Jojo Sutherland has led a most extraordinary life and this set allows her to tell the story of how she has come to be standing on the stage in front of you.

Aaah'm Votin YES

Aaah'm Votin YES
