It's like the Royal Variety Show of the Edinburgh Fringe. Seven different Fringe shows perform a 'taster'of their show and then interviewed by Mervyn.
'It's like the Royal Variety Show of the Fringe' 5-27th Aug
The Edinburgh Fringe can be a daunting place. So many shows available, how do you know what is good and what is bad?
“Have you seen anything good?”
Mervyn Stutter's legendary 'Pick of the Fringe' showcases have been helping answer this question for twenty five years.
Every day Mervyn and his team of arts professionals carefully research the Fringe. Then each day seven different shows are invited to perform a five minute extract from their show after which the performers are interviewed by Mervyn. This gives you a live ‘taster’ of each show plus some interesting background information about the show and performers. With these insights you can confidently pick the shows you like and then go and see their entire show.
Mervyn’s daily showcase is unique as it covers all genres of performance: Theatre, Cabaret, Music, Comedy, Circus, Dance, even the indefinable. All-in-all it’s a packed 90 minute lunchtime extravaganza!
