Latest Exclusive Releases

Award-winning comedian, tap dancer and Talksport radio host Charlie Baker toured this hour of stand-up drenched in manure, cider and clotted cream around UK villages/towns/cattle markets. Now he's gone digital for the whole world to embrace comedy with a countryside accent. Imagine Jethro and Jack Black had a son. Job's a good 'un. Proper job.

Amy Matthews spins a sparkling web of comedy magic drawn from the two states she finds herself caught between – stability and restlessness. She swings between the unbridled joy in the freedom that everything can change, and the crawling anxiety that nothing is certain. This is a show about the thrill of falling and the thud of landing. And after a thud comes a laugh.

Jason Byrne, half man, half natural disaster. Over the course of his accident-prone life Jason has been rebuilt from the ground up. Bits removed, metal pins, new knee, and an eye that’s been treated, over the years, by the medical profession like a game of Pong. This all culminated last year with heart surgery, twice! He enjoyed it so much he went back for more. Join the most gifted live comedian on the planet as he invites you to laugh at his misfortune. If he tried to say Schadenfreude, he’d probably dislocate his tongue.

Alistair Barrie wasn’t planning on writing a new show until the Conservative Party started playing musical chairs in Downing Street. Liz Truss blamed her downfall on woke culture, and if you agree with her, this probably isn’t the show for you. But if you like topical comedy from a professionally grumpy man looking for any excuse to avoid his parental responsibilities, you’ll be glad to hear Alistair was one of the few people not on strike in 2023.

In her debut solo show, Lulu Popplewell explores the links between Love Actually, smoking crack, the Daily Mail and sunburn. Is love actually all around? Why is addiction more relatable than recovery? Which drug would Mr Bean be most likely to take? None of these questions satisfactorily answered and more! A daft, rude and thoughtful hour of jokes, actually.

Hey Nextuppers, I reckon it's time we had some decent chat on these here new(ish) community feeds.... So, how did you find the first two livestreams of the Fringe? I personally loved both of them, and have new comedians to follow as a result. Also there was chat from some folk saying that they've never been to the Fringe before, and I'd like to know why, do you live far away? Or unable to make it for any other reason? I personally stay in Glasgow, so I'm just fucking lazy these days (I jest, I'm a chef so it's pretty tricky :p). Also let's reiterate what a great job  this platform  continues to do for live comedy and accessibility to it.

Much love,
Dan. (absolutely no affiliation to the site, just a huge live comedy fan)

I got a reminder from my calendar but there’s no show link in the app calendar. All FW social media still talking about a streaming partner so I’m a bit confused

Is there any way to watch the Fringe shows on catchup?

Couldn't get to Edinburgh this year but one of the few shows I managed to see in Previews was Phil Ellis. Thought I'd take a look at the the stream to see what it was like in its proper setting and ended up watching the whole show again. Hugely enjoyable, but glad it wasn't in 3D.
