Fringe 2022: Rosie Holt, ‘The Woman’s Hour’ Review

When I think of Twitter, I think mainly about arguments between complete strangers, and politicians spouting rubbish, both groups making utter fools of themselves. For those of you not yet acquainted with Rosie Holt, she makes Twitter bearable; a satirical comedian who often succeeds in fooling people into thinking that she is an actual sitting […]

Fringe 2022: Paul Sinha, ‘Once Sinha Lifetime’ Review

I didn’t know what to expect when I came to see Paul Sinha; I barely knew him as that guy from The Chase. At the ripe age of twenty-one, I was unaware of his long-standing career as a stand-up comedian, my only exposure to him being through my TV screen on fleeting occasions. Glancing around […]

It set the tone of the show as some sort of high-brow and sophisticated spectacle, similar to the kind […]

Fringe 2022: Iain Dale, ‘All Talk With Angela Rayner MP’ Review

Not your typical Fringe show, Iain Dale’s All Talk With series is an intimate deep-dive into the world of politics; a chance to see what political figures really think, away from the cameras and scripted scrutiny of Westminster. Sat in the front row of the Cromdale Theatre in the Edinburgh International Conference centre, you could […]

Fringe 2022: Sunshine on Leith Review

After a sell-out run at last year’s Fringe, Sunshine on Leith is back this year with what can only be described as an hour and a half of fun, joy, and an absolute banger of a soundtrack. The musical, written by Stephen Greenhorn and featuring the songs of The Proclaimers, is an exploration and celebration […]
