Rediscover the true Edinburgh Fringe spirit as lockdown begins to ease in 2021.

Hard to believe it's ten years since Walking Heads first published Edinburgh Comedy Tour. Our award winning virtual Fringe show led the audience on a carefree romp round famous venues.

Comedians Jamie MacDonald and Harry Gooch chased history through crowded streets. It was a tale told through headphones on a route mapped on your mobile phone. Sounds familiar?

Edinburgh's comedy landscape was changing, even before Covid, but Jamie and Harry showed some eerie foresight. There's the monster lurking beneath the Underbelly. And the almost tottering Henry Dundas monument – that towering column in St Andrew Square provides the surreal climax of our show.

No spoilers!

We hope you find hope for the future in their rebellious adventures. The show ends at The Stand Comedy Club, currently closed. This tour is free but you can help keep independent comedy alive by donating to www.thestand.co.uk/donate
