Edinburgh Fringe 2018
« on: July 28, 2018, 05:43:13 PM »
This is our first Fringe and was wondering if there are any veteran attendees here in the forum? Any suggestions on good shows? Tips? Activities/shows for 2-year olds? Meet ups perhaps?

We’ve bought tickets for the tattoo and booked a babysitter for that night, but that’s about all we’ve done.

We haven’t even looked at who’s coming yet lol. We were there in 2016 during it but didn’t go see any acts. It’s amazing at the size of the crowds. May see if hubby wants us to come down for a couple of days.  ;D

Went last year. There is too much! Every single show we went to was good, and we picked some weird ones.

My favourite was An Englishman, An Irishman and a Scotsman, a deconstruction of stereotypical humour.

The big problem is trying to decide on what to see!  Would go every year if I could.
I just hope that more people will ignore the fatalism of the argument that we are beyond repair. We are not beyond repair. We are never beyond repair. - AOC

My sister performed in a dance piece there last year. I was so sad to be stuck in the US waiting for my visa. If you go, have so much fun!!

Our wedding was in September just after fringe in 2016 and the city was still bustling from it. Some year I'd love to get back up there for it. So many amazing comedians and little shows.

I've lived in Scotland for 10.5 years and have never made the journey to go down to the Fringe. The costs and crowds put me off, but I would love to go sometime. 
I have been down to the Jazz and Blues Festival, which uses the same tents/locations. That was great fun.    Cool tents and locations. 
I've never gotten food on my underpants!

Picked up a Fringe program and started circling shows I wanted to see. Sadly my husband and I will have to take turns and watch solo bc we can’t afford to get a babysitter every time.

This sounds interesting and something i’d watch too. Couldn’t find it in the program though. Maybe I missed it will look again later. Thanks for the suggestion!

Yes. I heard hotel/Airbnb costs are through the roof. We’re lucky we live in Edinburgh city centre. Otherwise, I may skip too. Definitely notice a lot more people, performers, and tourists, walking around this past week.

It is called simply, "A Joke".
