Edinburgh Festival FringeEdinburgh Fringe 2016Preview


With over 3000 shows at the world’s biggest arts festival, here at The ReviewsHub,we want to make the job of choosing your Edinburgh Festival Fringe shows that little bit easier. So here’s Al Porter answering our annual Five Fast Fringe Questions.

In one sentence tell us about your show

My show is full of over honest council-estate-camp storytelling and feel-good fun.

What made you decide to bring a show this year?

Last year was my first Fringe and such an exciting experience I simply had to come again. That and my mother insisted so she could have some space.

Any advice you’ve heard or can give to anyone coming to the Fringe for the first time?

Do as many extra shows as you can, flyer for your show (it’s a great way to get dates too) and live with friends whose show you’re willing to hear them bang on about for a month.

What makes your show stand out from all of the others on offer? (Don’t say that it’s because you’re in it!)

It’s got practically no narrative, feck all theme and nothing but gossip, gags and a bit of pizazz.

What show, other than your own, do you not want to miss?

Spencer Jones is unmissable – I adore that man.

Finally, the boring but essential bit…
