The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is back for summer 2023. For three weeks (August 4 – August 28), the Scottish capital is home to comedy giants, serious thespians and hilarious first-timers, all putting on shows left, right and centre. It’s a huge, colourful celebration of all sorts of performing arts, and it’s a hell of a lot of fun.
But with so much choice on offer, it’s difficult to know where on earth to start. Well we’ve spent a week reviewing up here – here’s our pick of the show we have seen, and the ones coming up later in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2023, plus a few from the Edinburgh International Festival which runs alongside.
