Overview

Rediscover the original Fringe spirit

Vintage stuff in this pioneering comedy adventure. Some venues have changed, stars have waxed and waned. But Jamie and Harry captured the anarchic energy of Edinburgh's Fringe comedy when we launched our first audio tour on an unsuspecting city.

And their story lives on. Part walking tour. Part Fringe show. Completely unpredictable.

Comedian Jamie MacDonald is genuinely and irreverently blind so he hired another comedian Harry Gooch to help him round the route. Harry means well but he’s kind of accident-prone. Don’t worry, all the mishaps and madness happen to our guides.

They take you from the Royal Mile to the Stand Comedy Club on a route that twists through Fringe facts, nooks and crannies of the Old and New Towns. As they go a fantasy develops around them.

Along with Backstage Gossip by Susan Morrison and Bruce Morton, these Edinburgh comedy guides rediscover the original Fringe spirit.
