Pay What You Want: This year our shows in venues are ticketed, so you should book a ticket to guarantee entry - this is because of restricted capacities, COVID restrictions, and so we can keep you as safe as possible. Pay What You Want means you donate to a show in advanced for this ticket and you know you can get in. You can still turn up at the venue for free, and donate at the end of the show - but we recommend getting tickets this year to make sure you get in.

Fringe debut for brand new comedy improv panel show, OK, Let Me Explain. Host Ross Leslie invites four of the finest comedians and improvisers to answer impossible questions where we force them into justifying that answer. Top Scottish act, Ross, is the evil genius making his friends look as foolish and depraved as possible in this late-night laugh-in.
