Blog: Show And Tell at the 2017 Fringe

Here’s the ten shows that Show And Tell are bringing to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this August.

JOSEPH MORPURGO presents the hotly-anticipated follow-up his 2015 multi award-winning show Soothing Sounds For BabyHammerhead is a new hour of multimedia comedy, at the Pleasance Courtyard.

At Summerhall, the Fringe First award-winning duo SH!T THEATRE premiere DollyWould – a show about Dolly Parton (they f*cking love her). KIERAN HURLEY’s 2016 total sell-out Fringe First smash Heads Up is back at Summerhall for five nights only (Aug 22-27) as part of the British Council Edinburgh showcase. Plus, following an international sell-out tour, triple Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and Radio Four star JOSIE LONG brings a silly late night hour to the venue for three nights only (Aug 14-16).

Radio Four series star and award-winning Canadian stand-up MAE MARTIN presents Dope, her latest exploratory hour of stand-up, for free at City Cafe. And the critically-acclaimed cult trickery of JORDAN BROOKES returns in Body Of Work, also for free, at Finnegan’s Wake.

Three-time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee DAN ANTOPOLSKI makes a long-awaited return to the Fringe, at Assembly George Square, with Return of the Dan Antopolski. Making his 31st Fringe appearance, SIMON MUNNERY returns once more to the mid-afternoon slot at The Stand with a new stand-up hour, Renegade Plumber.

At Underbelly, two ever-lively musical comedy treats return to the Fringe – OTTO & ASTRID (formerly Die Roten Punkte) bring unashamedly-slick pop amidst much sibling dysfunction, in Eurosmash! And the Duchess of Canvey, DIANE CHORLEY revisits her seminal 1986 album Rhythm of Live and shares glimpse of her former music industry struggles
