View a whole set of Fringe 2012 madness from Edinburgh Scotland here. If you do Twitter add me here.

 

August, always a mad busy crazy time in Edinburgh, during the festival and fringe, which seems to have grown even bigger than the tattoo and festival.

 

The husband of Denise Scott, Australian commedian, promoting her show Regrets at the Assembly Hall, mound place, on stilts. It runs 2 - 26th August 6.30pm.

 

She was winner of the Festival Directors Award at the Melbourne Comedy Festival in 2011 as well as the winner of the Helpmann Award for best comedy 2011. Scotty has been quoted in the press as "big-hearted, shamelessly entertaining" by The Age.

The Edinburgh Festival Fringe (The Fringe) is the world's largest arts festival, with the 2012 event spanning 25 days totalling over 2,695 shows from 47 countries in 279 venues. Established in 1947 as an alternative to the Edinburgh International Festival, it takes place annually in Scotland's capital, in the month of August. The Fringe is a showcase for the performing arts, particularly theatre and comedy (which has seen substantial growth in recent years), although dance and music are also represented. In 2012, 36% of shows were comedy and 28% theatrical productions. Theatrical productions range from the classics of ancient Greece to William Shakespeare, Samuel Beckett and contemporary works. In 2012, 1,418 shows were having their world premiere.

 

The Fringe is an unjuried festival – with no selection committee, and therefore any type of performance may participate. The Fringe has often showcased experimental works that might not be invited to a more conservative arts festival. In addition to ticketed, programmed events, the Festival has included a street fair, located primarily on the Royal Mile. The Festival is organized by the Festival Fringe Society, which publishes the programme, sells tickets, and offers advice to performers. Their offices are on the Royal Mile.
