Edinburgh Festival Fringe Reviews
Newest Review: ... seem to grow year on year. The free shows are often where some hidden gems can be found. Most of the acts have paid to fund the show out of their own pockets and for those who aren't lucky enough to be one of the star names on show that is no easy task. Therefore they often use the free shows as a way to promote themselves. As well as free shows there are also a number of shows which are available for around £5. One of my favourite venues which normally runs £5 comedy is the Tron pub at Hunter Square. Hunter Square is situated just off North Bridge. There a plenty of buses, such as the 3 and 33 which you can pick up from the centre ... more

The Edinburgh Fringe Festival takes place every August for around 3 weeks and it's the biggest arts festival in world. For these 3 weeks every inch of spare space is transformed into a Fringe Venue. From established venues and theatres to open spaces such as Bristo Square which hosts the E4 Udderbelly every year the city is vibrant and the atmosphere is fantastic. For me and for many like me the Fringe means comedy, but it is actually so much more than that. Shows during the festival range from comedy, children's shows, cabaret, music, musicals, opera, theatre, arts - the whole lot. There really is something for everyone and people of all ages from across the ... Read the complete review

For a while now the senior partner in my accountancy and assassination firm has begged me to let him loose on dooyoo. Up until now his inability to type (due to lack of arms following the cigarette machine fiasco of '93) has held him back but this morning I foolishly allowed him to make me a cuppa and he won't give me the antidote to whatever it was he slipped in unless I type this out for him. So please don't blame me but here's Monkey Peter's review of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2009: Edinburgh. It's in Scotland which is like England but more north and has men who wear skirts and women who wear trousers and allegedly they toss cabers up there ... Read the complete review

I lived in Edinburgh for 5 years and used to really look forward to the month of August when the Edinburgh festival would commence. It was established in 1947 and is still going strong. This year it runs from the 31st July - 25th August. There are shows about virtually everything from Comedy to Flamenco, Opera to Hip hop. The venues are scattered across the city and vary from a phone box to a magnificent hall. It really is anything goes here! If you are going to attend the Fringe there are 5 top tips recommended on the fringe site (http://www.edfringe.com ) 1. Book accommodation - it is probably best not to arrive to Edinburgh during the ... Read the complete review

We have just spent the weekend visiting friends in Edinburgh and the weekend coincided with the 'preview' week of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The atmosphere in Edinburgh was fantastic and party-like with loads of performers parading the streets and plugging their upcoming shows. The Royal Mile was packed everyday with stalls and performing arts groups on their costumes handing out fliers for their productions. There was so much to see and do, all detailed in the huge thick programme that you can get from any of the box offices around the city. The preview week is really good if you want to save a bit of cash - there are loads of gigs (comedy/plays etc) ... Read the complete review

Once more the Fringe festival is almost upon us, Princes St. all the way up round Cockburn St. and the Royal Mile are totally buzzing with people from all walks of life. Japanese, Americans, Canadians, Germans and one or two Polish, they turn the City into a month long party for anyone who loves a bit of culture. Some folk go and don't spend a penny (culture vultures), the amount of street performers makes sure of this, as they are allotted a certain amount of time to each act at each part of the city, other entertainers then move in eagerly. Fire breathers (not the pub goers), Jugglers, people doing back flips and sometimes people breathing fire whilst ... Read the complete review

Daniel Kitson at the Stand - Kitson at his usual insightful, inspiring best. Show still has some distance to go in the early stages.
Who Killed Dead Man in a Box? - Great improvised comedy. Not all scenes are going to work.
