It’s actually quite surprising that during a massive clash of events – the Edinburgh Fringe and the Olympics – there haven’t been more shows combining the two. Embracing the theme entirely is ‘LOLympics Live’, hosted by two “laugh-letes’’ Marcus Ryan and Bronston Jones. The two comedians are armed with medals, ready to offer gold to the best jokes, and give every audience member the chance to participate. Also competing are three special guests, giving this variety show another string to its bow. Expect big comedy names, audience participation at a high, and two hyper hosts dressed in awful tracksuits that will brighten up your afternoon. Get down early as this show fills up extremely fast.
