Your weekend schedule from Punchline x

28 Aug

It’s the final weekend of the Edinburgh Fringe! Maybe you’ve had a long week at work, maybe you’re through for the weekend. A lot of our top 10 shows sold out long ago, and some (not all!) of the Foster’s Award nominees’ shows have been snapped up… so what to see? We’ve put together a cracker of a schedule of shows that you may still get tickets for if you’re quick! (Tickets still available when this article was published)

20:15 (1h) Angela Barnes: Come As You Are at Pleasance Courtyard, £11

Comedy Nirvana (sorry, it had to be done) from someone who makes sharp, unpretentious comedy seem like the most natural thing in the world. Think of a cold beer just when you need it; that’s this show.

This man will make you laugh like you did when you were a child. It’s so funny you might be sick.

00:10 (1h) Birthday Girls: Party Vibes  at Pleasance Courtyard, donation at end

Another chance to see the show that makes any night feel like a Saturday night. Very funny. Very rude. High energy. Everything you want from a party. Lovely.

Read our recommendation here

14:30 (1h) Tiernan Douieb: The World’s Full of Idiots, Let’s Live in Space at The Liquid Rooms Annexe

He’ll make you laugh and think, a LOT.

17:30 (50min)  Lou Sanders: Excuse Me, You’re Sitting on my Penis, Again at The City Café (donation at end)

For an hour of silliness, borderline hysteria and stealth thought provocation, see Lou.
