Greenside @ Infirmary Street


Buzz brings filth at the Fringe to a new level.

Pleasance Courtyard

Rhys James: Forgives

Fantastically funny, thought provoking, with a dash of filth; one of the best comedians at the Fringe performs his best show yet.

Gilded Balloon Comedy Nights November

Bringing back a bit of the festival once a month with comedy showcases, The Studio at Festival Theatre reminds us what a great comedy hub Edinburgh can be the rest of the year too.

Chris Ramsey: All Growed Up

A comedy ninja on stage, the bright young star tells jokes that are a little bit dirty while at the same time managing to be endearing and hysterical.


An entertaining adventure with enticing, well acted characters and plot, however it feels flat at the end leaving audiences not quite satisfied.

Iain Stirling: Touchy Feely

Touchy Feely is far from Stirling’s best show with jokes that aren’t quite there, lacklustre delivery and only a few really funny moments.


Marvelously talented and perfectly cast. Being on skag is the only thing that could make this show better.

Matt McDonagh

Vocally on point and quietly shining on stage with musical maturity beyond his age, McDonagh is a pleasure to watch and listen to.

Rhys James: Remains

Buster of rhymes, James returns with jokes just vulgar enough and sometimes rhyming. Seriously gifted with words and knows the right buttons to push.


Interview: Matt McDonagh

Vegan and rock’n’roll seem an unlikely combination, but somehow the 21-year-old pianist/singer from East Kilbride manages to pull it off.

Poets Against Humanity

Like a crazy russian roulette version of fill in the blanks. Comedy isn’t always rainbows and unicorns unless it’s a joke about unicorns at a sausage festival.


Interview: Patrick Morris

Trying to live his life more rock’n’roll than ambient jazz, Patrick is coming to the Festival Fringe to share his Fairly Premature Bucket List.

Blood Cells

An eerily beautiful use of the rural northern English countryside and subtle, complex acting to explore themes of homecoming and family dynamics.
