Edinburgh Nights, Mornings and Afternoons

Posted in Stand Up on June, 14 2006 10:41 AM

Details of the line-up for the 60th Edinburgh Festival Fringe have been released at their official site.

There are 1,867 shows to be chosen from between the 6th and 28th August. Apparently, to watch them back-to-back would take just under six years (not including toilet breaks).

Amongst all those are some Funny.co.uk faves :

Rebecca Carrington: Many Ways To Play Your Lover
Del Strain: The Truth The Whole Truth And Nothing But The Truth - his first Edinburgh appearance
Stephen K Amos: All Of Me
Glenn Wool: You Don't Go To Hell For Eating Elephants
Henning Wehn: Four World Cups and One World Pope!
Hils Barker: In the Wrong Place
Ian Stone: Embrace the Chaos
Mark Thomas
Josie Long: Kindness and Exuberance
… and so on.

Some of the 'bigger' hitters attending are:
Paul Merton: With his Impro Chums and also Silent Clowns following from his Channel 4 show on the classic silent comedians.
Harry Shearer: This is So Not About the Simpsons - dissecting American democracy and cosmetic surgery with music, incisive humour and derisive video.
Tim Brooke-Taylor & Graeme Garden: The Goodies Still Rule OK! - talking about their part in the history of British comedy.
Bill Bailey.
Jimmy Carr.
And Mel Smith playing Winston Churchill having a few drinks with Michael Collins.

There's even a two-day course on stand-up comedy held by Kevin McCarron and Jay Sodagar

Tickets can be booked online at http://www.edfringe.com/ or from  The Times Fringe Box Office on 0131 226 0000.

Programmes are also available from the site with details of stockists.
