    Ed Fringe 2022

    Proper Fringe returns next week so let’s have your recommendations and reviews. I went to an early recording for BBC Scotland tonight at The Caves. Edinburgh Unlocked, best of Scottish comedy. Hosted by Mark Nelson. 12 Scottish based comedians. As always with these things, some good, some crap but great to back at a comedy show.

    Currently got tickets for Maisie Adam, Laughing Horse Pick Of the Fringe, Just The Tonic Midnight Show, Mark Nelson and Harriet Kemsley.

    I like the shows with multiple people on. Chance to see some people you might not otherwise see and there are always a few gems in among. Done the Midnight Show a few times and it's always a good atmosphere. Couple of hours and the audience is usually in that kind of merry drunk phase so it ticks along quite nicely.

    I saw a guy called Thomas Green last year at Three Sisters. Free show. He was very very funny.

    He’s there again this year

    Have a word have had some brilliant guests on their podcast over the last couple of years and they’ve compiled a list of anyone that’s been one if they’re performing at the fringe.



    I’ve got tickets for

    Vittorio Angelone
    Daniel Sloss
    Paul Mccaffrey

    But if I was able to do another day I’d love to go and see

    Sarah Keyworth
    Kai Humphrey’s
    Tom Stade
    eshaan Akbar
    Fin Taylor
    Alfie Brown
    Seann Walsh

    Only Jason Byrne so far.

    Sure we will book a few more but not feeling particularly excited for it yet.

    I saw Tom Stade at his last couple of shows in the fringe, so good also stands at the exit after words has banter with you as you leave seems a proper good guy as well as hillarious

    No tickets but will prioritise seeing Foil, Arms and Hog when I get a chance. I've seen them every year since c.2010 (sans pandemic) and it's always been a great show. They've grown in that time from a smallish venue on the cowgate to large crowds in McEwan Hall.

    Otherwise I tend to just go to whatever is on 10/15 mins after I look at the schedule when out.

    Be great to see it all up and running at full throttle again.
    Mon the Hibs.

    Seen Foil, Arms and Hog a few years back and was a great show. Will be seeing them again this summer at some point.

    I saw Alfie Brown in a compilation show last year. Was dreadful. He took the huff and started hurling abuse at the audience for their poor taste.

    Bought an initial batch of a dozen or so tickets for the Fringe and Festival. My usual mix of tried and trusted, with some punts. Comedy, music, theatre, dance. Will add more as the reviews and recommendations come in.

    This year's added complication is the Film Festival. Would prefer it to have been in June, as it was for a while. It just adds to the time and expense.
