EdFringe 2019 - Comedy Recommendations

June 27, 2019



Lots of people have asked me what shows to recommend to go see this Edinburgh. It is really hard to sum up all the baffling and badass creativity that is going on in August, so rather than text you all individually - here is a list of the shows that I would definitely be going to see if I was at the fringe.  All the people on this list are comics who I have seen live, can vouch for being excellent and know personally - they are all solid human beings. Go and see them and give them some love.


(*Apologies to the acts whose accents on their names I've missed out -like Michael Brunstrom I don't know how to get accents for letters on my keyboard. Please forgive me*)


This took too long to go through for me to write a bio for each show - so look them up yourself!
