ED2012 Comedy Review: Mervyn Stutter’s Pick of the Fringe – 21st Year

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

As indicated by the name, this ‘Pick Of The Fringe’ is an extravaganza of carefully selected acts performing at the Festival. Covering a whole host of genres from music, theatre, dance, stand-up and the occasional act that defies classification, ‘Pick of the Fringe’ is ideal if you want a proper insight into the infinite variety of the Fringe. Mervyn Stutter and his legendary pink suit have an incredible relationship with the audience; a group of Fringe-goers who have beaten the system, refused the flyers and seen tasters of top quality acts under one roof in a show that is thoroughly entertaining for all ages. After 21 years with no signs of slowing down, this show seems almost fundamental to the Fringe.

Pleasance Courtyard, 4-26 Aug (not 14, 21), 1.00pm
