Comedy at the fringe

Even having a quiet drink can be entertaining at the fringe. Comedienne Deborah Frances-White is seen here pulling in more audiences before her 715pm show at the Underbelly. Deborah's quick sense of humour had everyone she spoke to laughing afterwards. She has been doing well this year and is hoping to have a great final week before heading home to relax with her feet up.

They come from near and far

We often forget how widely known the Edinburgh Fringe has become. I have just finished reviewing Third From The Left who are from Los Angeles, and walked along the Royal Mile and watched the South African youth choir before asking for the picture above from South Korean performers of The Train. The sun is shining the audiences are plentiful, it looks like the fringe has managed to get even bigger and better this year.

Hey Diddle Diddle

Liverpool based national students theatre give an impromptu performance me their musical on a mobile stage on the royal mile. Performers can book a slot to attract audiences.

Edinburgh Castle

In between walking between venues dont forget to take in a bit of the amazing scenery in Edinburgh. This is the castle from Princes Gardens.

I've just came from a sold out show at the Traverse. A comedy drama Strawberries in January and it was as sweet as the title suggests. Booking advised.

The festival that never sleeps

Saturday, another day for the actors to get on the streets of Edinburgh and plug their show. Its a tough job so give them your support and encouragement by taking one. You can always put it in the nearest bin :-)

Love labours won is still by far the best show I've seen and I am still smiling from the experience. Magic !

The Edinburgh review team have lots of others to tell you about and I have a full schedule tomorrow at the Traverse with my brother who will be sharing some of the review duties with me.

Visit the website for updates and I will send a newsletter out on Monday.
