It’s the most crazy time of the year – the Edinburgh Fringe is on, and we’ve got a bunch of our gang up there. Go and see them! You’ll have the most excellent time.


Jeanette Bird-Bradley (Rhymes Against Humanity, Millions of Voices) sharing her weird and hilarious obsessions.

Waste hours online amazed by ridiculous niche products? Seek creative ways to get revenge on those you love? Value the work of questionable action heroes? After selling out at Nottingham Comedy Festival, Jeanette Bird-Bradley is here to share your shame, doubt your choices and put things into perspective!

5-13 August | 16:45 | Bourbon Bar Room 2 | Frederick Street Edinburgh | Venue 333

Happily Never After

The other place you might see Lloydie (Rhymes Against Humanity, Millions of Voices, everything), catch him in the act on 12 and 13 August. And teched by that Liam Webber guy…

Award-winning improvisers The Maydays present this skin-prickling tale full of black comedy and haunting music, inspired by the warped imaginations of Tim Burton, Lemony Snicket and the Brothers Grimm. Starting with your suggestion, The Maydays take you on a bone-chilling journey, meeting the grotesque and the innocent, weaving a fantastical story that’s different every time. Happily Never After returns to edfringe for a second year after sell-out shows across Europe.

3-13 August | 16:30 | Just the Tonic at The Caves | Rowantree Bar Edinburgh | Venue 88

The Fall of Byron Montrose; Poet, Gentleman, Lover

A wonderful opportunity to see Ben Macpherson (The Vox Pops, Millions of Voices) at his lyrical best.

Don Juan meets Milton Jones in the pun filled Adventure; the sellout hit of the Nottingham Comedy Festival and the Student Fringe Festival. The fall of Byron Montrose tells the tale of a lost romantic poer as he deals with love, opium and Napoleon. A Daring story of exile, lust and laudanum. From one of Nottingham’s most promising comedians, The Fall of Byron Montrose; Poet, Gentleman, Lover is silly, witty and just a little bit naughty.

5-15 August | 14:50 | Black Market Rooms | Market Street Edinburgh | Venue 399


The award-winning variety show of Liam Webber (Rhymes Against Humanity, Smash Night), killing it at the Fringe.

5-27 August | 20:45 | Subway | Cowgate Edinburgh | Venue 56

Joe Hart: Alpha, Beta, Gamer

A splendid show written & produced by Liam Webber, as well as all the cool 8-bit music.

New interactive video game show from Joe Hart (SYTYF? Finalist and Tickled Pig Winner)! Nerd out, level up and just maybe live to respawn another day. Featuring custom made video games for the audience to play, win and, possibly, break live on stage.
