Picks of the Edinburgh Fringe

Deep breaths. We are now HALF WAY through the Edinburgh Fringe. The weather is still mainly terrible (come back sun, we forgive you!), but the city is busy and the festival is brilliant.

I've been to quite a few things already, so I thought it would be fun to round up my very favourites so far....


Carl Einar Häckner - Handluggage
Gilded Balloon, 7.30pm

Probably the best show I've seen all fringe! It's a Swedish magic comedy show (but is about a billion times better than that might sound). Book a ticket. Go on!


Jarred Christmas - Let's Go Mofo
Gilded Balloon, 9.30pm

I like Jarred Christmas, he seems like he'd be a good pal. He also deserve loads of ticket sales for handling a really radge Late n Live crowd (heckle, don't punch, people!).


Frisky & Mannish - Extra-curricular Activities
Assembly Hall, 7.30pm

Super pop comedy. Frisky always has really excellent outfits too!


Sammy J and Randy - The Inheritance
Underbelly, 6.05pm

Don't take children, it's a bit sweary. But it's super good!

If you have any recommendations of things you've seen, please share! Tonight I'm out to Neal Stephenson at the Book Festival, then Late & Live at Gilded Balloon (I actually have no idea what the line up is, but I'm excited).

Bring on the weekend!

  1. Ooh I really want to go see Carl Einar Häckner, it seems like it would appeal to my weird sense of humour and a bit of magic is always good!
    My favourite thing that I've seen so far this year is Dracula: Sex, Sucking and Stardom (here), I loved it. A musical about Dracula to the tune of Bad Romance and Copacabana, BRILLIANT!

  2. I caught a snippet of Frisky and Mannish at the fun and filth cabaret, they we're great!
    My best show so far has to be the Boy with Tape on his Face, I managed to get some free tickets on the preview day but I would quite happily pay to see him again. Something just completely different to anything I've seen at the festival.
