No Fringe this year? We got you... Here's where to catch Edinburgh's best bits on tour throughout the rest of the year
There’s no denying that the Edinburgh Fringe Festival is one of the UK’s premier arts institutions. It’s a site of pilgrimage for culture vultures the world over, with only events such as the Olympics and the World Cup surpassing it in numbers of global visitors. For comedians, actors, dancers and all surprising sorts of performing artists, it’s a vital place to cut your teeth, take disappointing audience numbers on the chin and sharpen your skillset with the hope of getting noticed.
But unless you’re lucky enough to live in the cobbled streets of Auld Reekie, visiting the Fringe (and finding a vacant hotel room) can be tricky. If you’re jonesing for a jape or two but missed out on this year’s edition, fear not, here are some of the Fringe’s funniest bunch performing throughout the UK the rest of the year.
