Comedy at Edinburgh Fringe Festival
Edinburgh Fringe Festival has something of a funny bone these days. Comedy forms the basis of all things Fringe and the festival run attracts some of the biggest and best names on the circuit, as well as a host of upcoming and local talent.
Here are just a few of the events you should be keeping an eye out for if you fancy a laugh or two this August:
TV star and comedy giant Dylan Moran will be bringing his iconic jokes and misadventures to Edinburgh’s Fringe for another year.
The Irishman’s dark comedy will be on show for six nights at the Stand’s New Town Theatre from 14-19 August and represents a first look at the comedian’s upcoming UK tour.
Ashley Storrie: Adulting
Laughing Horse at The Counting House Ballroom plays host to one of comedy’s rising stars from August 2 to 26.
Ashley Storrie, daughter of the great Janey Godley, has followed in her mother’s footsteps into the land of stand-up comedy.
In 2018, Storrie is hitting the Fringe for the next step in a career that is only on the way up.
The irreverent comedian returns for what promises to be one of the Fringe’s standout shows.
The star of BBC Scotland’s Limmy’s Show brings his side-splitting montage of personally created Vines and social media videos to the festival after touring across the nation for the past year.
Sindhu Vee: Standing
The debut show from the host of BBC Radio 4’s Comedy of the Week podcast lands in Pleasance Courtyard’s The Attic from August 1-26.
Sindhu Vee comes fresh from appearances in BBC’s QI and Have I Got News For You to offer her own take on family life in the modern age and how sometimes, it damn well sucks.
Catherine Bohart: Immaculate
Down in Pleasance Courtyard’s Bunker Two is Catherine Bohart’s Immaculate. Running from August 1-13 and 15-26, this hour-long comedy focusses in on Bohart’s own life as the bisexual, OCD daughter of an Irish Catholic deacon.
Bohart’s first foray into Fringe Festival performance, the hilarious comedienne was a finalist in BBC New Comedy Award 2016 and BBC New Talent Hotlist 2017.
