Cat is a one-woman twisted comedy show by Connie Harris.

Experience a razor-sharp, subversive exploration of life at its darkest; ranging from the benefits of tapeworms, to what to do with an unwanted grandparent.

Come to hear your deepest, most unspeakable thoughts expressed. But be prepared to have the constant question: ‘Should I be laughing?’ in the back of your mind.

Connie is a young writer, musician and performer who comes from a village in Norfolk. There’s a lot more going on in that little village than first meets the eye. You’ll be shocked how much of the play is true! This is her first time at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Come and see one of the hottest tickets from Fringe 2019 as you enjoy a riotous night in the company of some of the rudest and funniest puppets ever. With puppets and actors sharing the stage it is a riot as Princeton a bright eyed college graduate tries to find an apartment that he can afford.

He meets lots of characters including Trekkie monster, Kate monster, Nicky and Rod the good and bad idea bears and quite a few more. You will soon be lost in the world that they create and live in. The cast have their hands full (quite literally) with the puppets as they make them come to life, in fact getting them to come out of character every night is damn near impossible!!! But sit back, grab a drink and have a good old laugh as you join the family of Avenue Q.

This is the story of Derek Douglas (Jim) as he was growing up in Central Scotland through the 1970’s. It’s a look back at when life was a lot simpler.

You left the house at 8.00am and came back when it got dark, no questions asked, no wondering where you got fed, just that you were out with your pals. A time when the most difficult question was “Am I getting a slow dance at the Friday Disco”? When everybody and nobody looked after you. A kick in the bum and a slap across the head was how we were disciplined. A time when the new year party lasted 3 days and you couldn’t see across the room for cigarette smoke and somehow you got 60 people into a 2 bedroom house. This was written as a labour of love about a family now sadly mostly all gone. It’s about the seemingly highest high and lowest low that a 70’s teenager went through.

We hope you enjoy it and laugh and cry along with the cast as we take you on Derek’s journey.

Join police sergeant-turned-comedian Alfie Moore ahead of recording, the eagerly anticipated, Series 7 of his hit BBC Radio 4 comedy ‘It’s a Fair Cop’.

In this live version of his show, Alfie temporarily ‘swears in’ the audience as police officers before taking you through a real-life crime scenario from his own casebook. He playfully challenges the ‘audience cops’ to say what you would’ve done in his shoes – with often unexpected and entertaining results! As an expert in both policing and stand-up comedy Alfie guides you through the legal and ethical traps whilst consistently finding the funny at every twist and turn of the case.   

Policing decisions are easy in hindsight aren’t they? Now you can experience the thrills, spills and laughter of making those high-risk judgement calls in the moment.  ‘It’s a Fair Cop – Live!’ is challenging, thought-provoking and always fun. Join in as much as you wish or just sit back and enjoy the action if you prefer. Either way it’d be a crime to miss it. 

‘Fascinating, funny and weirdly life-affirming’
The Guardian
