Hello and welcome. Or, welcome back if you've already taken Edinburgh Comedy Tour. Come with us now behind the scenes of famous Fringe hotspots like Underbelly, Pleasance, Assembly Rooms...where anything can happen. And often does.

These are places where many famous names have begun – and nearly ended – their careers onstage during the Fringe.

Comedians Bruce Morton and Susan Morrison share their own sometimes painfully hilarious memories – and tell a tale or two about many wellknown names.

Have you heard the one about Frankie Boyle, Jerry Sadowitcz, Johnny Vegas, Miles Jupp...you soon will.

Backstage Gossip is a companion to Walking Heads Edinburgh Comedy Tour with Jamie MacDonald and Harry Gooch who lead an eventful audio walking tour cum Fringe show around town. We hope you enjoy a different way of exploring Scotland's capital city.
