Edinburgh Festival Fringe

Roll up roll up, Edinburgh Festival Fringe has returned, boasting its usual all-encompassing array of arts and amusement. There’s everything from theatre, comedy, dance, circus, cabaret, musicals and more, delightfully spread across the Scottish capital for three weeks in August.

Did you know that the Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the largest arts festival in the world? Well it is, you have read it on the internet therefore it must be true. Last year there was over 50,000 performances hosted by the festival over the three weeks. Amazing right? The only downside to this much entertainment however, is not knowing what to see.

That’s where we come in. We have compiled a list of the must see performers who will be taking to the stage this time around. Check it out:

Ben Hanlin will blow your mind with his unique style of comedic magic.

The ever ridiculous Beth Vyse will have you chuckling throughout.

English comedian of the year 2015 Brennan Reece is certainly worth checking out.

Phil Wang, Jason Forbes and George Fouracres make up the comedy sketch trio Daphne, they promise to be ridiculous and hysterical live.

Darren Connell takes a different approach when performing, with brilliant results.

Darren Walsh just gets better and better every time he performs.

Grainne Maguire pokes as much fun at herself than anyone else, which is a real crowd pleaser
