I Love Edinburgh is a festival lover and has seen 100s of shows over the years (mainly comedy and dance).   I have bought tickets (or about to tomorrow) for the following shows so far (all preview prices or 2 for 1) .   All are linked and will take you to the show description.

Jason Byrne  Consistently funny, new material every year, includes a lot of swearing and don’t sit near the front !

Tom Tom Crew  Come highly recommended from a friend

Kevin Bridges   This guy is my MUST SEE of the fringe, he is a very funny Glaswegian comedian (going to see him tonight at the Leith festival, review to follow).  Have seen him 4 times and has never disappointed.    REVIEW ADDED

Micky Flanagan  Have seen him in previous years, always funny.

Richard Simms  Taking a gamble on this one, but should be fun since it’s an interactive show with breakfast included !!

Pythonesque  Will be a first for me

Etch a Sketch  Another first

Paul Zerdin   Have seen this ventriloquist on TV and was very impressed


Other top recommendations from me are Adam Hills who is always funny and his Sunday night shows are sign interpreted for the deaf, but very funny to watch !  Also the EFT Comedy Gala is super value for money.  Michael McIntyre is hosting this years show again with a variety of comedians.  Show lasts about 3 hours and you see 12 + comedians each doing a stint of their funniest gags.   I also recommend Ivan Brackenbury – he’s been very good the 2 times I have seen him, my review of his show is HERE

Last recommendation at the moment is a musical tour of Edinburgh by Graeme Pearson – and my review is HERE


No money to spend at all ?     Try the Edinburgh Free Festival


More to come…………………
