  • Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2008: alt-comedy preview

    Pappy's Fun Club bring their 'Funergy' to the Pleasance

  • ‘The Meeting’, Pleasance

    Just about the funniest board meeting you’ll ever attend. Outrageously silly. This is the show for anyone who’s ever worked in an office. Hilarious.See 'The Meeting' at the Soho Theatre

    Pete Firman: ‘Flimflam’, Underbelly

    Blazing a trail for the new generation of magicians, Firman is making magic cool again. You’ll be amazed, amused and probably a little disgusted.

    ‘School of Comedy’, Pleasance

    Sketch comedy for adults performed by kids. There’s nothing funnier than children swearing and pretending to be grown-ups. Destined for really big things this year.

    Pappy’s Fun Club: ‘Funergy’, Pleasance

    Their exuberant sketches and superb knockabout humour won this foursome a lot of friends last year.See Pappy's Fun Club in London at Babalou.

    Idiots of Ants, Pleasance

    Slick sketches tightly written make this group one of the hottest properties around. They just get better and better.
    See Idiots of Ants in London at the
    Etcetera Theatre.

    Two Episodes of MASH, Pleasance

    Our favourite comedy duo perform a series of wonderfully bizarre sketches. Comedy culthood beckons. These guys could be the secret hit of the fest.See Two Episodes of MASH in London at the Warehouse Theatre or the Roundhouse. For more info visit www.edfringe.com.
