My Picks from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015


In the month of August, Edinburgh turns into a massive festival - all day every day, through the night and in all weathers. There are show's for everyone.
The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the world's largest arts festival which started back in 1947, and still going strong today. Entertainers come from all over the world to show their talents. Whether it be comedy, dance, cabaret.. you name it, the festival will have it.
August is probably the best time for tourist's to come to experience this beautiful city. Fortunately, I've lived here all my life.

I've been to lot's of shows over the years. I only started going to shows over the past 8 years as a lot of them are of adult nature, but when I was a child, my dad used to take me to see the street acts, which in itself is mind blowing.
I've so far only booked two shows. One I go to every year and the other depends on what comedian I fancy seeing.
I first saw this act when I was 16 and I got two free tickets at work, so myself and my dad (he's one of these people who will try everything once, no matter what it is!) went along. It was very out there and different, I absolutely loved it and so does my dad! Now we go every single year - and the best part is its a new show every year. I understand it's not everyone's cup of tea, as we took Calum last year and he's defiantly refusing to ever go back, but if you're looking for something different, absolutely hilarious show from these lovely ladies (and men, of course), I highly recommend this show!
After a lot of controversy, Jim Davidson's back and better than ever! As it says in the description "Very few comedians could turn the worst year of their life into a resounding success", and I have no doubt Jim will have my sides so sore from laughing! I've seen a good few comedians now, but I have high expectations for this show. I remember watching Jim on a snooker show (if anyone remembers the name, let me know!) and I liked him then, and even though he had a rough time, I like him better than ever now!
Not only will I see these shows, I always spend a day watching the street acts aswell - they're all free and there are always little stalls dotted about everywhere selling everything from jewellery to ornaments.
What's your favourite act at the Fringe this year?
