Edinburgh Fringe Festival Guide Part 14

As part of of Edinburgh Fringe festival Guide, you can find part 14 below.

In part 14 of our Edinburgh Fringe Festival Guide, we have some of the greatest comedians around, see below for a full list of who to see.


Another Canadian, Kate has a brilliant story about her loss of over 13 stone in two years. She’s been named one to watch in Canada and her show is directed by the great Gina Lyons.

Kate was a fat awkward kid from a loud, chaotic family. A family who, despite being working-class seemed to feel more comfortable communicating their feelings via the lost art of letter writing. The first movie she ever saw was ‘The Little Mermaid’, which kicked off her obsession with romance and idea of happily ever after. Spending most of her life binging on Disney movies, romantic comedies and junk food, Kate’s Cinderella story replaced glass slippers, a fairy godmother, and prince charming for jello shots, bad decisions, and one too many f%@k boys – think more hopeless, less romantic.

Venue: Just The Tonic – The Tron  

Time: 9.00pm

Dates: 4th – 28th August (except 17th)

Previews: 4th & 5th August


Anna’s show is fairly fascinating. She had an existential crisis during the pandemic and went on a 4 day retreat in the Irish wilderness with a Brazilian shaman. she went in leaving a boyfriend behind and he’d disappeared by the time she came out. She then moved back in with her parents and reverted to her teenage self. The show is brilliant and she’s getting a lot of heat.

Anna makes her Edinburgh Festival debut this year with her show ‘I SEE DEAD(LY) PEOPLE’ at the Gilded Balloon for the month of August. The show contains hilarious tales of millennial dating, family misfortunes and hot hallucinations that are 100% true!

Previews: 3rd & 4th August 


Michelle is another Canadian. This show is also the directorial debut of Adam Hills.

‘Be Your Own Daddy’ is the story of how Michelle spent her whole life waiting for someone to fix her.  The show covers all elements of her life – the good, the bad and the even worse… Michelle was bullied as a child and didn’t realize the profound effect that had on her until she quit drinking 3.5 years ago and took stock of her mental health. She delves into her world and shares them with a readiness and hilarity that most others struggle with. Whether it be her 20-year battle with bulimia or being so poor she had to scam to get groceries, Michelle knows how to make all her issues into comedy.

Another with a lot of heat going into Edinburgh, he’s done a lot of tv such as the John Bishop show and has been the lead in a west end show. He’s a Londoner of Nigerian descent and has  older sisters so was always surrounded by women.

Plenty of Emmanuel’s humour comes from his years as a bouncer, where he spent most of his time watching people at their best but also at their worst. Reliving unbelievable anecdotes from times he worked at some the swankiest clubs in the world, looking after celebrities and the nights working at some of the scariest clubs you can think of. Having to adapt to all these scenarios on any given day has really made Sonubi see the world differently.

Morgan is a Welsh comic who’s show deals with his coming out as Bi in the valleys. He talks about how his ‘nan’ is only 10 years older than him and an aunt who is a certified ghost hunter.

If you have ever wondered what it’s like growing up with a Nan 10 years older than you, an Aunt who is a certified Ghost Hunter, and how a white boy from the Welsh Valleys was in line to be a prince in Nigeria, then this is the show for you. There is also a brief period about modern-day masculinity, but it’s mainly jokes about bumming.

Delightfully witchy and unbelievably funny sketch comedy, Sinead and Katie are fringe veterans and are hailed as the most exciting sketch in the UK.

The new show features a whole host of oddball characters, sketches and songs including Norris’s mini play, a three-part coastal thriller, The Lighthouse, inspired by Hitchcock, Gilbert & Sullivan and The Lighthouse (film). Written in a lockdown delirium, the play reflects Norris’ mental state at the time as well as her deep lack of respect for Parker as an actress; forcing her to play a sexy squid and a half pig, ingenue Veronica Ham, who arrives in Kent searching for her missing sister.
