Review: The Greatest Ever Late 'n' Live, The Gilded Balloon, YouTube

Late ’n’ Live really is an essential part of the Edinburgh Fringe furniture. If you haven’t experienced a raucous night of post-midnight anarchic comedy at the Gilded Balloon you haven’t really experienced the Fringe. In the absence of a real Fringe this year the Gilded Balloon has put together compilations of some of the best acts who have played there. 


Edinburgh Fringe Review: Fringe Search Party

It’s been hard to find the spirit of the Edinburgh Fringe this year but I had a damn good go. Earlier this week after restrictions had lifted I went to see an open air stand-up show from Nathan Cassidy at the Three Sisters in Cowgate. It was a pretty good gig and as it stands Cassidy will no doubt be sticking the line “Best Edinburgh Fringe Show 2020” all over his posters. Which will be correct if no other comics turn up to do stand-up in the remaining days.

Late’n’Live at the Gilded Balloon is an Edinburgh Firnge legend. You are not a comedian if you haven't faced a Late’n’Live audience and you are not a comedy fan if you haven't been to one of their late night shows where anything can happen. Did you witness John Bishop crowd surfing? Were you there the night David O'Doherty gave away his bike? Maybe you saw a life-changing striptease?
