The Gong of Edinburgh: Comedy Gong Show

Gong Shows have launched the careers of several famous comedians... and ruined the lives of thousands of others! Welcome to the unique Fringe experience in which the comics are competing against the clock and the patience of the audience.

The more the audience laughs, the more time on stage the comic has; but if you fail to deliver, get ready for the GONG!

Come and see international comedians give it all they got! Three audience members will be chosen as judges, and given flags to raise once they're tired of a comic on stage. Once all three flags are up, it's time for the gong, and it's game over for the comic!

This year we have two entry methods: Free & Unticketed or Pay What You Can
Free & Unticketed: Entry to a show is first-come, first served at the venue - just turn up and then donate to the show in the collection at the end.
Pay What You Can: For these shows you can book a ticket to guarantee entry and choose your price from the Fringe Box Office, up to 30 mins before a show. After that all remaining space is free at the venue on a first-come, first-served bases. Donations for walk-ins at the end of the show.
